As a tenant, here are some scenarios you may encounter:
Poor Living Conditions/Habitability - Your landlord has a legal requirement to be sure all rental units are properly maintained. If your apartment is infested with vermin such as roaches, rats, mice, or bedbugs, or your electricity, plumbing or other utility services are not functioning properly, contact us today and let us help.
Asbestos and Lead Paint - When asbestos or lead paint are disturbed — for example, by construction workers or maintenance teams–the result can be catastrophic. Asbestos and lead paint debris and dust can contaminate your personal belongings and make you ill, both now and for many years afterwards. A significant remediation process is often necessary, and must begin as soon as possible. If you have learned that your home contains these dangerous substances, contact us right away for a determination of your rights and your options for dealing with the problem.
Injuries on Premises - If you've injured yourself on another person's property due to their negligence in maintaining their property, we can help determine if you have a case against the property owner. We have extensive experience in these types of cases.
Violations of Rent Control law - Many landlord are evicting their rent-controlled tenants so they can charge someone else more rent, or even so they can rent the unit out on Airbnb. This is illegal and can severely harm tenants. If your rights under rent control are being violated, call us today to see if you have a remedy in court.
As a landlord or property owner, here are some scenarios that you may encounter that The Brinton Firm can help you with:
Broken Lease Agreements - Tenant's refusal to pay. The original rental contract must contain specific wording in order for you to collect money owed. Always have a professional review your leases to be sure they will protect your interests in these scenarios.
Habitability Issues/Property Maintenance - It's the landlord's responsibility to make sure residential rental property is safe for tenants. Failure to do this can lead to serious legal consequences.
