Common Landlord Tenant Issues That Lead To Nonpayment Of Rent

Unfortunately, there are a lot of disputes that take place between renters and landlords. In some cases, these issues can lead to rent non-payment, which might lead to an eviction lawsuit. It is important to anticipate these issues ahead of time so that renters and landlords understand what their rights and obligations are. What are some of the most common examples of disputes that could lead to rent payment issues?

The Security Deposit

A lot of landlords require renters to pay a security deposit. Usually, the security deposit is refunded when the renter moves out; however, it can also be withheld due to rent non-payment and property damage. This is a common issue that frustrates renters and landlords because there is some confusion over what damages can be charged to the security deposit. Major repairs can be deducted from the security deposit, but normal wear and tear cannot.

Property Damage

Property damage is another common landlord-tenant dispute. It is the responsibility of the landlord to make major repairs to the property; however, the tenant is responsible for routine maintenance. If a landlord believes a renter has damaged the property, this has to be proven before action can be taken.

Pet Issues

Finally, some landlords require a pet deposit if the renter has pets. The pet deposit is used to cover potential damage caused by the pet to the property. In some cases, disputes over the damage that might have been caused by the pet can lead to landlord-tenant disagreements. In all of these situations, it is important to rely on a real estate attorney Anaheim CA.
