Landlord-Tenant Disputes Attorney Serving Los Angeles County and Ventura County
When a party leases residential or commercial property, the relationship should be memorialized in a well-drafted lease agreement. However, even with a solid lease, disputes can arise between a landlord and tenant. If a dispute is not addressed properly, it can be costly for one or both parties.
If you are a landlord or tenant and facing a dispute regarding a leased property, you should not wait to consult with a landlord-tenant disputes lawyer in Ventura and Los Angeles Counties. Contact the Law Offices Alan J. Carnegie, APC, to discuss your options.
Common Disputes between Landlords and Tenants
Both landlords and tenants have rights and responsibilities to one another, such as paying rent and providing a habitable space. Lease agreements might have additional terms and conditions tailored to the specific property and arrangement.
Disputes can arise when one party violates terms of the lease, including the following:
- Failure to pay rent
- Unlawful entry onto the premises without notice
- Unlawful or criminal activity on the premises
- Creating a nuisance for other tenants
- Failure to make necessary repairs
- Unreasonable common area maintenance (CAM) fees
- Violating use clauses for commercial property
- Failure to return a security deposit as required by California law
If you cannot resolve a dispute, tenants might be entitled to damages for harm they suffered, and landlords might need to file an eviction case in court. Landlords cannot simply self-evict tenants from their homes, so it is important to try to resolve the matter informally or to take the proper legal steps for an eviction.
