When landlord/tenant disputes turn violent

On Behalf of | Jul 25, 2019 | Landlord/tenant Matters |

We have addressed many different facets of disputes which involve landlords and tenants. Unfortunately, some disputes can be especially tense and may lead to serious hardships for either party. For example, a dispute may lead to a heated argument and significant tensions between a landlord and his or her tenant(s). In some cases, violence may even occur. For example, a frustrated landlord may hit a tenant, or a disgruntled tenant may attack their landlord. It is very important to prepare for these possibilities if you are facing a disagreement involving your landlord or tenant, and take appropriate action if such an incident ever occurs.

Disputes between landlords and tenants can become extremely emotional and combative. On the one hand, landlords may be worried about their property and their bottom line, which can be threatened by unruly and uncooperative tenants. On the other hand, tenants may face a myriad of challenges when their living conditions are unsuitable because of a careless landlord, or when the place they call home is threatened because of a landlord’s wrongdoing. These challenges can be even greater when children are involved.

We at Triangle Law Group know how tense and unbearable these disagreements can become, and unfortunately, some have turned violent. You should be prepared to protect your rights, and it is important to have a clear understanding of those rights if a dispute arises.
