Bringing A Legal Claim Against A Residential Tenant
If your tenant has committed a gross breach of lease, you have a right to bring a legal claim against that individual. At our law firm, we can help you with a wide range of landlord-tenant disputes, including:
- Failure to pay rent
- Destruction of property
- Noise violations
- Holdover tenancy
- Tenant crimes
In many cases, evicting a tenant will be sufficient to bring about the needed resolution in your matter. In other cases, we may need to file additional legal actions to remedy the situation. Regardless of your specific circumstances, you can rest assured that your matter is being handled by an experienced legal team with a significant track record of success.
Defending Against A Legal Claim Brought By Your Residential Tenant
Under Michigan law, residential landlords are held to high standard when it comes to owning and operating their properties. When an applicant feels discriminated against, or a tenant feels you have violated their legal rights, they may bring a claim against you and your company. These legal actions can disrupt your business, damage your reputation and affect your profitability.
Our law firm provides a vigorous defense against all legal claims and works diligently to quickly resolve the matter. We are equipped to address any type of accusation against a residential landlord, including:
- Discrimination against rental applicants
- Violation of disability access laws
- Failure to address mandatory building or unit repairs
- Failure to address rodent or bedbug infestations
- Habitability claims
- Improper withholding of security deposits
- Improper handling of the eviction process
