§36-4-13. Effect of destruction of buildings.
No covenant or promise by a lessee that he will leave the
premises in good repair shall have the effect, if the buildings
or other structures are destroyed by fire or otherwise, in whole
or part, without fault or negligence on his part, of binding him
to erect such buildings again, or to pay for the same or any part
thereof, unless there be other words showing it to be the intent
of the parties that he should be so bound.
