Landlord/Tenant Disputes

Landlord/tenant disputes are extremely varied. The landlord may not take care of the property that is owned, or the tenant may not take care of the property that is being leased. Disputes may arise over the paying of rent. Eviction proceedings can arise due to misunderstandings. As both the landlord and the tenant take on a number of obligations toward each other when they sign a lease, it's not surprising that litigation can result when one of these obligations is not met.

The Eviction Process

The most thoroughly contested landlord/tenant disputes often involve eviction of a tenant. The lawyer who handles the eviction notice matter either on behalf of the landlord or the tenant needs to thoroughly understand the law as how the eviction process operates. In Texas, both the landlord and tenant are provided certain rights when it comes to eviction. Whether an eviction goes forward is often dependent upon whether the alleged lease infraction is major or relatively minor, whether alternate arrangements can be made, and whether the terms of the eviction are consistent with the lease agreement and Texas law.
