Tenants Have Rights
If you are a tenant, it is important to know that should you have a dispute or disagreement with your landlord you can assert your legal rights. You may believe that unlike you, the landlord has ready access to lawyers and accountants and the money to easily pay for their services.
In most situations a landlord is required to give a tenant notice. There are rules that mandate the type of notice necessary and how notice must be given and the number of days that make the notice sufficient. Notice requirements can apply in written lease and oral lease situations.
