Common landlord-tenant law questions resolved on JustAnswer


The landlord-tenant law Experts on JustAnswer are often asked to provide guidance on issues of rental and lease agreements, rent and security deposits, tenant rights, landlord rights, repairs and maintenance and eviction.


Questions that the Experts handle regularly include problems such as:


  • What recourse does a landlord in Florida have when a tenant vacates a property before the lease is up, and lives on premises the last month without paying rent before leaving?
  • I re-signed my lease, and all parties executed it including the property manager. Now they want to discard it and have me resign a new lease stating "technical error." Can they do that? Don't we have a legally binding contract?
  • I have a tenant suing me because they said I took advantage of them and put them out so I can make more money off of them fixing up my home.
  • I have lived here for 27 years. I originally paid a last month deposit last month of $525. Am I entitled to 27 years of interest on that $525?

When speaking with JustAnswer about landlord-tenant law, you will usually be asked what state the property is in, the steps you’ve taken so far to resolve a dispute, whether you’re prepared or filed any paperwork, and terms of the lease or rental agreement relative to the problem.
