Many issues can arise between landlords and tenants, and some of these issues may require legal action. Although landlords keep busy maintaining properties and striving to keep happy tenants, it is important for landlords to know their rights and to protect their rights by hiring an attorney in case a civil case arises.
A landlord may have to take legal action if a tenant does/violates any of the following:
There are certain regulations that the landlord must follow in order to legally evict a tenant. All eviction procedures must go through the court system. Landlords are not allowed to change the locks, remove the front door, or turn off the heat or electricity. Before the landlord can regain possession through the court system, the landlord must properly serve the tenant with a summons and complaint
Tenants have the right to fight
