Rights & Responsibilities of Landlords & Tenants

In this legal relationship, both sides have rights and responsibilities. The property owner has the right to receive the rent on time and have access to the property for repairs after giving proper notice. In turn, the landlord has the responsibility to maintain the rental property in safe condition and return the security deposit when the lease conditions are met. On the flip side of the coin, the tenant has rights, too. These include the rights to fair access to housing without discrimination and to live in a habitable house or apartment. The renter also has responsibilities, such as paying the rent on time and the right to privacy. This means the landlord must give reasonable notice for a request to enter the property for repairs.

When the two sides disagree on any of these rights and responsibilities, it is time to consult with an attorney who has experience with these issues. This gives both sides protection of their rights. Call me today for a consultation.

What To Do When Someone Breaches a Rental Agreement

A breach of contract is a serious issue that can happen to either party. When a rental agreement is signed, both the tenant and landlord agree to uphold different responsibilities. Paying rent on time and making repairs within a certain amount of time are just two terms, out of many, that are included in an agreement. Whether your tenant is withholding payment of rent or your landlord is illegally evicting you, rely on my law firm for help. I continually strive to resolve situations amicably, but if needed, we will go to court and fight aggressively for you.
