From the Perspective of the Landlord

If you are a landlord and find yourself embroiled in a dispute with your tenants, you must be careful to take the time to follow legal steps in an accurate and timely manner. If these steps are not followed correctly, you can expose yourself to a great deal of liability. These matters are usually very technical, very notice-driven and very time-dependent. It may be in your best interests to consult with a lawyer experienced in navigating these issues.

From the Perspective of the Tenant

As a tenant, the natural inclination is to do what your landlord tells you. In this difficult economy, it can be a frightening situation to have to look for a new place to live. It is important to realize that there are many regulations and technicalities that protect you that you might not even know about. Contact an attorney with any questions you may have regarding your rights in a landlord-tenant dispute.
