Eviction Notice

Are you a tenant with a landlord problem? Are you a landlord with a tenant problem? If so the Laufer Law Group can help. The terms of a landlord tenant agreement are very straight forward.

As a Tenant you are obligated to

  • Pay rent in a timely fashion.
  • Dispose of garbage.
  • Properly use the fixtures and appliances.
  • Not to damage or allow damage to your unit.
  • Keep your premises clean and sanitary.
  • Return the property to the initial condition it was in when it was rented to you.
  • Comply with your rental agreement.

 

If the tenant cannot perform his/her duties, the landlord can then seek to evict the tenant. In the event that fails to maintain the premises, the landlord can:

  • Make repairs to the premises and bill the tenant.
  • Sue the tenant for damages.
  • Sue to force compliance with rental agreement.
  • Evict the tenant.

 

As a Landlord you are obligated to

  • Be accessible to the tenant (or have an accessible representative).
  • Keep the property up to code.
  • Provide the facilities to supply hot & cold water, electricity, and heat.
  • Provide a sensible program for pest control.
  • Provide adequate locks for doors.
  • Maintain appliances furnished with the rental unit.
  • Maintain the walls and roof.
  • Maintain all structural components.
  • Comply with duties imposed by local laws.

 

A landlord cannot knowingly rent property that is condemned. If a landlord fails to perform the duties listed above, there are 3 types of solutions that are available to the tenant:

  • You have the right to terminate the rental agreement, and move out of the premises after giving written notice.
  • You have the right to sue.
  • You have the right to make limited repairs to the premises and deduct the cost from your rent.
