Avoiding eviction in landlord-tenant disputes

There are many reasons why a person might choose to rent a home rather than purchase one. The legal terms, obligations and responsibilities contained within individual rental contracts vary. It is crucial that anyone entering such an agreement have a clear understanding of all written formalities before adding a signature to the bottom line. This is often a key factor in avoiding landlord-tenant disputes further down the line.

The law protects a person renting a residence from unjust eviction. This means that a landlord cannot simply kick you out of your home without adhering to the regulations that govern such matters. Typically, written notice must first be given to a tenant before an eviction takes place. It is also normally required that a landlord inform a tenant as to why he or she is being evicted.

If a landlord's complaint has to do with smoking, pets or unpaid rent, a tenant may be given a certain amount of time to rectify the situation before being forced to leave the residence. Such situations are often complicated and a tenant may find it less stressful to seek legal guidance in the matter. This would obviously be beneficial if a landlord has filed a lawsuit against a tenant who has refused to vacate a residence.

In rare cases, landlord-tenant disputes may involve calls for eviction without an opportunity to remedy a situation. Such situations might include allegations of illegal activity or repeated violations of the terms of a rental agreement. At any rate, a tenant threatened with eviction is able to request that an attorney act on his or her behalf when addressing such matters with a landlord.
