If there is no renter's insurance to cover the property damage, the tenant has a right to sue whomever was the cause of the damage.

even if there is no damage to the renters property just to the owners property (example:grass in the yard
Lawyer: Roger, Attorney replied 7 years ago
If the tenant doesn't own the damaged property, the tenant can't sue to recover anything from anyone. All the tenant can do is ask the owner to make the repairs.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
