​Landlord / Tenant Law

Landlord tenant attorneyWhether renting an apartment or leasing an investment property there can be a myriad of complications that arise in a landlord and tenant relationship.  Landlord/tenant law encompasses all the factors that may compromise the rights of either party.

 Who can file a case?
The law protects landlords and tenants alike, and either can file a lawsuit against the other for a multitude of causes.

Landlord/Tenant Law includes the following types of cases:

  • Eviction: A landlord must provide proper notice and if necessary, file a lawsuit against the tenant to carryout 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, where 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).
