A Landlord is constructing a building in a flood plain. The Landlord wants to include in a lease a provision that during a flood the tenant is required to evacuate. In other words, a "mandatory evacuation" clause. I am not concerned with a Katrina-like situation, where a state of emergency is declared. I am not concerned with the power to declare an emergency evacuation that is bestowed upon city officials, state officials or the President. A portion of the Landlord's building will be rented as public housing. Is this an enforceable provision with respect to all tenants? Is it enforceable with respect to the public housing tenants? The building is located in Connecticut but I believe that the issue may be federal, as a HUD regulation or Federal regulation may control. In addition, I believe that this may an issue of contract law. I require citation to supporting authority for any answer. Please let me know if you require any further information. Thank you.
