Landlord Tenant Law
Landlord Tenant Law
At the Law Offices of Kirk S. Warren, we are cognizant of the obstacles that pervade landlord tenant laws and we have advised both business and household owners on how to deal with these tricky situations.
From our years of experience, we have concluded that most landlords and tenants are not aware of the existence of many Landlord/Tenant laws. Knowledge of these state laws protects you as a landlord to secure your investment.
On the other hand, the same statutes protect you if you are a tenant by ensuring fair treatment by the landlord. These laws help avoid:
- Legal disputes involving rent, repairs and deposits among other concomitant financial lease agreement issues.
- Renter’s rights to minor repairs and maintenance, including mold removal and prevention.
- Landlord liabilities for bedbug infestation.
- Tenants right to privacy and safety.
- Landlord’s disclosure of all pertinent issues in a lease.
- Landlord access to rental property.
Retaliatory Actions, Evictions and Discrimination
Legal battles between tenants and landlords have led to comprehensive laws to avert discriminatory treatment against any party in most states. They mostly apply to tenants who in this case is deemed vulnerable.
The law is clear that your landlord cannot just kick you out, and as legal professionals dealing with landlord-tenant laws, we help you fight against such treatment.
There are of course other issues covered under Florida law including the right to withhold rent, handling of abandoned belongings and the protection against landlord retaliation. We understand the law and our services are aimed at ensuring fair treatment for both the landlord and the tenants.
As a landlord, you have the right to protect your property. Some of these included the right of entry, which vary from state to state. You have these rights in case of emergencies for repairs and renovations or the abandoning of property. Understanding each of these rights is not easy and we help to take you through the laws in order to fight for your rights.
As a tenant you might be going through a rough time because you do not know your rights yet. We will assist you with these issues and help you understand your rights as a tenant.
