Landlord-tenant disputes are a common occurrence in the renting process, and many could be avoided if both parties were aware of their rights and responsibilities. It may be an easy matter to rent out your property to a tenant. However, to handle and manage a tenant can be a pain. Lets look at some very common questions and check your understanding in Landlord Tenant Law.
1) What does it mean that a tenant shall not "commit waste"?
2) What is a lease or rental agreement?
3) Is the landlord responsible for maintaining rental property and complying with local housing codes?
4) What is "repair and deduct"?
5) What is "constructive eviction"?
6) Can a landlord ever terminate a tenant's right to use and possess the rental property?
7) Can a tenant ever terminate their legal obligations of a lease during its term?
8) What happens to the right of use and possession at the end of the period of time set forth in the lease?
9) If a tenant has not been around for over 6 months and not paid any rent, can I clean out the apartment and re-rent it?
10) Can a tenant refuse to let an agent onto property after receiving 24 hours notice? The lease does not cover the issue.
