Today, we discuss both the rights and responsibilities of tenants and landlords when it comes to property real estate renting and or leasing.
A landlord’s desire for security and a tenant’s right to a safe and habitable residence are often at odds. A lease agreement is more than just a piece of paper — it lays out the legal terms agreed upon by two parties. As in any contract, breach of the agreement can be grounds for eviction.
Navigating the eviction process can be a challenge. Learn about the steps involved, deadlines and requirements for the landlord, tenant and court when it comes to eviction in the leasing of real estate.
