Landlord Tenant Disputes Lawyers in San Francisco Bay Area
In California landlords and tenants frequently sue each other for breaches of a lease. Leasing of premises is so prevalent that almost everyone will at some point be a landlord or a tenant in a lease dispute. Residential tenants are protected by California state law and some municipalities adopted additional protections in the form of rent control laws. Residential protections cannot be waived by the tenant by written or oral agreement. In commercial leases, the courts look to the terms of the lease negotiated between the parties to determine their rights and responsibilities. Commercial landlords and tenants have much more flexibility to set their own “law” by outlining their rights and responsibilities in the lease agreement.
Some of the more common legal issues between landlords and tenants involve:
- Repair/Habitability Issues
- Rent Increases
- Security Deposits
- Sub-leasing and other Lease Assignments
- Termination of the Lease, Eviction/Unlawful Detainer
- Premises Liability for Landlords
