Landlord-Tenant Law Attorneys in Indianapolis
Landlords need to be informed of all applicable laws concerning contracts, evictions, tenant rights, and the rights of property owners. The landlord has more to lose than the tenant because of the value of the property and the chance that the tenant may devalue the property by causing damage or making the premises uninhabitable.
You can consult with an attorney from Cleveland Lehner Cassidy who is experienced and knowledgeable in landlord-tenant law if you think you need help.
The statutes pertaining to evictions are primarily designed to protect the rights of tenants, but the landlord’s interests and right to reclaim the property are also addressed. In most states, a tenant can be lawfully evicted for failing to pay rent, violating the contract, or expiration of the lease.
A landlord who pursues an unlawful eviction could be found liable and ordered to compensate the tenant for attorney fees and costs. To avoid potential liability, it is beneficial to consult with an attorney who specializes in this area to clarify the procedures spelled out by the relevant statutes and case law.
