Ask a Landlord-Tenant Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good evening. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
If you can get a signed release from the tenant, it is probably not a bad idea to offer something for the inconvenience of losing the laundry.
Then do not bring it up unless they raise the issue. If they do bring it up work out a fair settlement and get a release to cut off any further claims
Did you have further questions? Have I answered your question?
Your legal obligation is to provide the services and accomodations promised in the lease. If the tenant is not provided those services and accomodations then they have the right to seek compensation. That is why I am suggesting that if the tenant is willing to settle that claim for a nominal amount you should take it and cut off your liability for future claims by getting a release. I am not trying to ding you for additional fees. I am only trying to to keep this from spiraling into a more costly situation between you and the tenant.
However, if the tenant has stopped making any demands and is not pursuing this then it would be idiotic to give the claim more life than it already has. Best to let it lie, even though you are in technical breach.
We seem to be having a communication problem. I am not sure you are actually reading my answers. I have given you your legal obligations and exposure to liability.
I do not know what additional charges you are referring to, as I am not originating them. I have responded to all of your follow up questions profesiionally, despite the abusive attitude you are directing at me.
I will opt out so that someone else can assist you. No need to respond.
different expert here. do you still need an answer and if so what may I answer?
