Why Would A Tenant Need An Attorney?
There is a multitude of disputes and situations that may arise for a landlord or tenant that may require litigation or negotiation. Each party has its own set of protections and rights. At the most basic level, tenants should feel comfortable and safe in the property they are renting.
If these basic expectations aren’t being met, then it is wise to hire an attorney to remediate the problem as soon as possible. Dealing with either of these situations feels overwhelming. Additionally, there is a relationship that is developed between the landlord and tenant, thus if one of the parties attempts to collect money directly from the other person, they may let feelings of anger dictate the process instead of following the law.
Either party may be facing some sort of difficulty, but each person still deserves what is contractually owed to them, whether it is the monthly rent payment, addressing potential hazards on the property, or returning the deposit upon moving out.
