Legal Issues Specific To Landlords And Tenants
There can be myriad complications that arise in a landlord and tenant relationship regarding matters such as the renting of an apartment or leasing of an investment property. Landlord-tenant law encompasses all the factors that may compromise the rights of either party.
Who Can File A Landlord-Tenant Claim?
The law protects landlords and tenants alike, and either can file a lawsuit against the other over issues such as the following:
- Commercial or Residential Eviction: A landlord must provide proper notice and, if necessary, file a lawsuit against the tenant to carry out a legal eviction.
- Abandonment: These claims involve cases in which a tenant vacates the property with no intent to return and fails to pay rent.
- Warranty of Habitability: These claims involve cases in which a landlord did not keep the property in a habitable condition or did not fix the damages that made it inhabitable.
- Discrimination: These claims involve a violation of the Fair Housing Act, when a person was denied the opportunity to rent based on race, color, religion, sex or national origin.
- Disability: These cases involve individual violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
