What Tenant Law Is Actually All About
Are you afraid that you are probably going to be expelled out of your own apartment? Does your landlord actually treat you and his other tenants nicely or not? Thankfully, there have been rights stipulated by the government to protect those people who are just renting apartments and houses in order for them to be safe and secure as well when horrible situations arise. This is basically the reason why this article exists, because most tenants have exactly no idea as to what their rights are and if they actually even have rights. Read on further all throughout the whole article so that you can get that better understanding about the laws as well as be knowledgeable about how you can fight back if in case the landlord tries to harass you in any form or manner.
Ever heard of a proper notification?
Apparently, your landlord does not have the full rights to have you eliminated from the apartment if he does not have any court order to give out to you for evidence, so if he tells you to get out of the house, you must let him present a court order first before you actually get eradicated. If the landlord wants you out because you have done a ton of things that have caused mishaps in his part, he will need to file a notice to be given to the court, just like the way people file a lawsuit, and then if the court so agrees, you will get the court order through another person, like a sheriff or a third party who is out of the situation. Some third parties do not like to give the notice to you personally, and some of then even just try to hurry it all up and hang the notice to the door. Sometimes these situations can be reasons for some cases being thrown out because of how the third party has delivered the notice to the receiver, or the tenant. If you are not quite sure about the whole delivery situation, you need to have an attorney work for you as soon as possible.
The revenge eviction
Say for example, you, a tenant, have been trying to let your landlord know about a damage in the refrigerator but even after telling him for a month now, he still has not done anything in order to fix that broken refrigerator of yours. And then now that you still have that damage on your apartment for about a few months already, still the landlord does not do anything to solve it. And then you are suddenly alarmed by a sheriff giving you an eviction notice- now this is called the revenge eviction. What must you do in order to deal with the situation?
