Common sources of landlord-tenant disputes include:

  • Missed rent
  • Maintenance and upkeep
  • Property damage
  • Property misuse

Missed Rent Payments

If a tenant has fallen behind on rent, you should immediately contact a real estate lawyer. By acting quickly, you may be able to reach a settlement and avoid a complicated court case.

A lawyer can also help landlords cover all their bases and ensure they are upholding everything on their end. This, in turn, could strengthen a landlord’s case should they ultimately end up in court. If a landlord fails to meet the end of a rental contract, it could hurt their case in court.

The Rental Property has been Damaged

Some tenants will go to great lengths to protect their landlord’s property. Unfortunately, other tenants may not take proper care of a property. After tenants leave, a landlord might discover that carpeting has been damaged, broken windows, or whatever else.

Conversely, if you’re a renter worried that a landlord will hit you with bogus charges and baseless claims, you should also contact a lawyer. They can help you mitigate risks. If a landlord refuses to make repairs that they are supposed to make, a lawyer may be able to compel the landlord to act.

Too Many People and Animals are Living on the Property

Many landlords set limits on how many people can live in a home. In some cases, government authorities may also set limits. Further, many property owners may ban or restrict pets on their property. Unfortunately, animals can quickly cause damage to yards, carpeting, and more.

If too many people are living in a home or renters have forbidden pets, it’s wise to contact a real estate investment lawyer right away. They can help reduce risks and potentially save you from various headaches.
