Things That You Need To Understand On Tenant Law
Are you afraid that you are probably going to be expelled out of your own apartment? Do you not like the way your landlord treats and handles you and the other tenants? 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. Unfortunately, a lot of these tenants do not have any idea as to what the different laws stipulated for them are, which is why they need to read this article to be more educated about these kinds of stuff. If you have been harassed by the landlord, read on further for more information and details on how you can make that harassment stop and finally be able to live in peace and harmony in your own life.
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. Before the landlord can evict you, he will need to file a notice to the courthouse just like what people do when they try to file a lawsuit, and if the court agrees, they will have a third party give the notice or the court order to you, yourself. The notice will most likely be not handed to you personally by the third party, and sometimes they would just basically hang the notice to your doors. If they do so, the case may be thrown out because there was no proper delivery being made by the third party assigned to send the message. If you are not quite sure about the whole delivery situation, you need to have an attorney work for you as soon as possible.
Wonder what revenge eviction is?
You have probably been complaining about a leak in the faucet lately but even after a week, the landlord still refuses to believe so and does not really do anything to have your faucet problem solved. 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. How will you react to everything that’s happening, considering the fact that you have not even done anything wrong?
