Hold Your Landlord Accountable To The Law
Everyone has a right to feel safe and secure in their own home, whether they are a homeowner or a renter. Unfortunately, many renters live in buildings owned by landlords who are more concerned with their rights than their responsibilities. These landlords might be slow to respond to basic requests, if they respond at all. Or they may fail to maintain their property and ensure that it satisfies building codes and fire codes. These choices can cause you inconvenience, cost you time and money and even jeopardize your physical safety.
Fortunately, all property owners are required to follow a system of laws designed to protect tenants from negligence and abuse. If you are having a dispute with your landlord, the surest way to reach a definitive resolution is to speak with a skilled attorney who can help you identify your legal options. At the Law Office of Matthew T. Valeriane, PLLC, we stand up for tenants’ rights and hold negligent owners accountable to the legal system.
