Get 'Em Out By Friday: Landlord-Tenant Disputes

, The Legal Intelligencer


Many of my tenant-clients are struck by what they think is an inherent injustice in landlord-tenant law in two ways. First, tenant-clients obviously view their possession of a rented space with a certain amount of ownership interest. Even if they don’t own their place, it is still their home. Further, they also believe that being a “good tenant” (i.e., remaining current on rent and taking care of the property) should be rewarded with a certain amount of loyalty to them from the landlord. Unfortunately for tenants, neither of these is the case. Landlords have no obligation to reward and/or have loyalty for and/or give allowances to tenants who are so-called “good tenants.”
