Common Landlord-Tenant Disputes
Landlord-tenant disputes can arise for a variety of reasons and usually have to do with rent, repair, tenant rights, eviction, and more.
Here are some of the most common disputes:
- Property maintenance: Landlords have to maintain their property and ensure it is safe for tenants. Staircases, elevators, electrical wires, and pipelines, for example, all need to be maintained. If these expectations are not met, landlords could owe steep fines.
- Cleanliness: While it is the responsibility of the landlord to maintain safe conditions on the property, it is the tenant’s responsibility to keep it clean. A landlord will typically make note of the condition a property is in before allowing a tenant to rent it and, if it is not given back in the same condition, the landlord has the right to keep the deposit and use the funds to repair the property.
- Property damage: When a tenant wishes to change the condition of the property with the use of nails, screws, and other fixtures, they need permission from the landlord. If the tenant proceeds without permission, they will be liable to pay for the repairs when they leave.
- Nonpayment: One of the biggest landlord-tenant disputes is related to the nonpayment of rent or adjusted rent costs.
