In addition to tenant rights under California Codes, what are some basic common law tenant rights?

San Diego, CA |

More specifically, what are common law tenant rights involving the implied warranty of habitability. For example, given that the right to repair and deduct is limited in application, what options exist under common law or even contract law for more substantial violations, say, where the tenant had to make correspondingly larger repairs regarding lack of habitability?
