Exculpatory Clause

Primary tabs

Definition from Nolo’s Plain-English Law Dictionary

A provision in a lease that absolves the landlord in advance from responsibility for all damages, injuries, or losses occurring on the property, including those caused by the landlord's actions. Most states have laws that void exculpatory clauses in rental agreements, which means that a court will not enforce them.
