Sue Your Landlord to Resolve Landlord-Tenant Disputes

You are already in an apartment lease and when you come home from work one night you notice there’s a huge hole in the ceiling and the hole is larger then the last time you reported it to your landlord. And apparently they are not going to do anything about it.

I’m here to answer the questions how to sue your landlord to resolve a landlord tenant dispute. Well one of the first things you want to consider is what does your lease agreement with this landlord say.

They may very well be a provision in the lease agreement itself that dictates whether you can sue the landlord or whether you have to do something before you can sue the landlord such as go through a dispute resolution process or something of that nature.

You also want to take a look at the statutes of the state in which your reside that would govern over landlord tenant disputes. And you want to determine whether this is a residential landlord tenant dispute or a commercial landlord tenant dispute because ordinarily even though it varies from state to state the requirements for suing a landlord are different if it’s a commercial landlord tenant dispute then they are if it’s a residential landlord tenant dispute.
