Landlord tenant relationships are often deeply personal and just like many personal relationships, they can get messy.
Communication is key in preventing some of that messiness. When landlord rights and responsibilities and tenants rights and responsibilities are fully understood and documented with properly drafted legal documents, these relationships are a lot less difficult to manage.
The relationship that you enjoy with your landlord can directly impact your lifestyle, comfort, image and financial standing. It is important for tenants to understand their legal rights and to be fully educated on landlord and tenant laws.
When your tenant rights are compromised, a strong legal advocate will:
protect your tenants rights (including right to privacy, safety, fair housing, etc);
ensure that legal duties and liabilities are not are incorrectly placed upon your shoulders;
fight illegal eviction, unconditional quit notices, or discrimination; and
reclaim costs associated with landlords not living up to their terms of the lease.
Understanding the state and federal regulatory compliance laws is becoming more and more of a necessity of landlords in order to fully protect your interests. When faced with the unfortunate difficult tenant, it is important that landlords have legal guidance help you make your business profitable while steering clear of liability.
