Legal Guidance For Tenants

When a dispute arises between a tenant and their landlord, it can be hard for a tenant to defend their best interests. Landlords have considerably more experience dealing with rental problems such as misunderstandings and disagreements as well as more serious disputes regarding habitability, lease agreements and tenant rights and they know how to resolve these matters in their favor. When you are struggling with a landlord/tenant dispute, you should have an attorney on your side who can defend you through your needs.

As a tenant, you have rights that must be respected, and he is prepared to help resolve issues related to living conditions that threaten your health and safety in a swift and effective manner.

Your Rights Deserve Protection

From the moment you sign your lease to the day you move out, your time at the property should not include any unnecessary hardship from the property or landlord. If your landlord fails to address necessary repairs, then it’s crucial to have a knowledgeable lawyer by your side, who understands the intricacies of landlord-tenant law and is committed to ensuring that your living situation is fair and lawful.

Landlord-tenant disputes can take many forms, but common causes of action include breach of contract, retaliation, and violations of state and local housing regulations.

Defending Tenants And Their Habitability Concerns

Living in a safe and habitable home is not just a comfort; it’s a legal right. When landlords fail to keep their properties in a safe and viable condition for their tenants, they need to be held accountable for the consequences and the cost of correcting the problem.

At the West Covina office of FGC Law, P.C., you can find a California lawyer who provides skilled legal representation for individuals facing habitability issues in their rental properties. He understands the distress that tenants experience when their homes are plagued by infestations, mold, leaks and structural dangers, and he is committed to holding landlords accountable.

The Health Issues Of Infestation And Mold

Many tenants make the mistake of underestimating the threat that vermin and mold can cause them. Rats, mice, roaches, lice and bed bugs can cause rashes, infections and diseases in tenants, and many types of molds can inflect illnesses that many medications have difficulty treating. These health issues can last a lifetime or be fatal, and when infestation or mold is in your home, a California tenant rights attorney can help make sure that your landlord provides you with a clean and safe living environment.

Defending The Structural Integrity Of Your Home

Habitability also extends to the physical integrity of the property. When your home is suffering from leaky pipes or other plumbing problems, weak roofing, loose stairways and railings, crumbling walls, and other deterioration or damage, it can pose a deadly threat to tenants. Your California lawyer will work tirelessly to ensure that such conditions are addressed promptly and appropriately by landlords, safeguarding tenants’ rights to secure dwellings.

Taking Legal Action To Remove Hazardous Materials

Depending on the age of the property, there is a strong possibility of asbestos, lead paint and other hazardous materials remaining in the home. These substances can cause a tenant to contract illnesses like cancer, dementia or other life-changing conditions. Even though landlords are required by law to remove these kinds of dangers, some will refuse to do so as a way of saving money. Instead of arguing or pleading with your landlord to remove the hazard, let a lawyer tell them to do so through swift legal action.
