When a tenant rents a property from a landlord, a written rental agreement that outlines responsibilities and protects the rights of both parties must be signed.
It is the landlord's duty to provide a safe living environment for the tenant, and tenants are obligated to maintain the property in such a way that they will not damage the property, engage in illegal activity or disturb their surrounding neighbors.
When any part of this agreement is not fulfilled by either the landlord or tenant — whether it's unpaid rent, security deposit disagreements, lease violations, or anything similar — then a dispute that could lead to eviction may result.
