Retail landlords and tenants often face challenges

In a perfect world, retail landlords and tenants would always get along. Unfortunately, we have come to find that this is not the way things always work out. Even with a lease in place, there are times when one or both parties are upset for one reason or another.

Tenants and landlords: Negotiating rent

Rental properties are there to help a landlord make money, and in turn, provide tenants a place to live without requiring them to buy. When the real estate market gets tighter in the local economy, one thing you may be able to do is to negotiate the price of an apartment or rental building. As a tenant, you can politely bring up the cost of the home and negotiate, and as a landlord, you have the right to price the home at any price you believe is fair in the current market.

What responsibilities does a landlord have toward tenants?

Landlords and tenants both have their own set of responsibilities when they enter into a leasing contract. Landlords specifically are required to keep the rental property in a habitable condition. Additionally, if the landlord wants to enter the property, he or she must inform the tenant with a reasonable amount of notice. The only time a landlord can enter a property without notice is if there is an emergency.

How can you protect yourself against aggressive tenants?

You love being able to lease out your duplex, but you also know that whoever you bring in needs to be a safe, respectful tenant. How can you make sure you protect yourself as a landlord and only work with people who are respectful of your property?

You should understand what's in your lease or rental agreement

A tenant leasing agreement has a number of different facts about the lease in it as well as restrictions, obligations and other legal matters. There are several things that will be listed in each lease including the names of the tenants and landlord, the term of the lease, the address of the unit, if the tenant can have pets and how much the security deposit will be.

What does a landlord have to do before eviction?

If you have a tenant who has not paid his or her rent, there are steps you can take to make your tenant pay. On the flip side, if you're the tenant, you should know your rights and how you should expect to be treated by your landlord when you owe rent. In both situations, working with your attorney can help you through this process in the most effective manner.
