Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, our firm will provide zealous representation to protect your rights and property. A landlord tenant law claim covers a vast area of categories relating to, but not limited to the following:
Sometimes there is a breakdown in communications between landlords and tenants, giving rise to issues such as rent disputes, harassment, lack of essential living services, nonpayment of rent, etc.… The most common dispute between landlords and tenants is the issue of the right to possession of the rental unit, where a landlord will seek to recover possession of his/her property by filing an Unlawful Detainer, which is simply an eviction action.
Residential tenants are legally entitled to a safe and livable residences. In the area of law, this is referred to as the Implied Warranty of Habitability, which is implied in every residential lease. Landlords have the legal obligation to provide tenants with a livable place by the simple virtue of holding the premises out for rent. Habitability cases in California allow renters to recover damages for, among other things, constructive eviction, personal injury, tenant harassment, and over payment of rent. If you are a renter and your rental unit suffers from substandard conditions, but your landlord fails or refuses to correct and repair the conditions, you have rights!
