What To Do About Landlord Harrassment ?


Apartment Listing  

Landlord harassment is not common as it can be taken very seriously by the court of law. However, cases do exist and it is common to hear about it on the internet and neighborhood stories. If the landlord is living in the same property as you, then you are under constant vigilance and at some point or the other the landlord might turn into a nuisance for you.

However, every tenant has his or her own legal rights that even a landlord cannot cross. As long as a tenant is staying on the property legally, the landlord cannot enter his or her premises without permission. In case you find that the landlord is intruding on your personal space too much, then you can take the necessary action by writing a notice to the landlord or reporting it to the authorities.

Your rental contract allows at least three months period of notice and if your landlord is not giving you enough time to vacate and is threatening you with eviction on top of that, you can pursue the matter in court yourself. The landlord has to abide by the rental contract and both the parties that have signed the contract need to respect and follow it completely.

In case the landlord has been harassing beyond limits, the tenant can file a compliant against the landlord with the sheriff and also appeal in the court for a stay order without the interference of the landlord on his own property. Tenants should, however, have genuine reasons to be able to get such things done legally.
