In California, renters’ rights is a major issue that can become difficult to manage for both landlords and tenants if the problems are not immediately addressed. Renters’ rights are something not often discussed at the onset of a rental agreement.
It is important that you know what your rights are, and how you can assert them if there is a dispute between the landlord and you, the renter.
Some of the most common instances of when a landlord is in the wrong are when the landlord fails to provide the minimum accepted standard of habitability. As an example, you file a complaint with your landlord about a repair—the faucet, the air conditioner or furnace, or a blown electrical fuse, as examples—and the landlord fails to handle the repairs. When your unit no longer becomes habitable, the landlord is breaching the duty to create a livable space.Some tips that can help assert your tenant rights:
Our Glendale tenant rights attorney understands there may be cases when taking legal action may be necessary. For example, there are federal laws in place to prevent landlords from discriminating against a tenant based on race, religion, gender, age, etc., as examples. Landlords must be transparent in their decisions to refuse rental, and discrimination is, therefore, a violation of this law.
