Wayne County Lawyers for Rental Property Disputes

The dynamic that exists between a landlord and a tenant is important for maintaining stability in their business relationship. If both parties live up to the expectations set forth in their rental agreement, the situation can be beneficial for everyone involved. When complications arise, however, the relationship between landlord and tenant can deteriorate and become volatile. At Erb Legal LLC, our experienced lawyers understand that a simple miscommunication or misunderstanding can quickly evolve into a serious problem. Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, we are equipped to help you find a resolution efficiently and without unnecessary delays.

Helping Ohio Landlords Understand Their Responsibilities

When you own residential rental properties, Ohio law specifies that you have a number of obligations that cannot be transferred to or waived by your tenants. As a landlord, you are responsible for:

  • Ensuring your property meets all housing codes and health standards;
  • Keeping the property livable by making necessary repairs and keeping up with necessary maintenance;
  • Maintaining plumbing, electrical, and heating systems for the property;
  • Complying with the Fair Housing Act, the Americans With Disabilities Act, and all other federal and state laws; and
  • Respecting your tenants' privacy.

Landlords also have certain rights, including the right to set the monthly rent amount, the right to establish any reasonable terms and conditions in the lease, and the right to have their property returned in the condition it was in when a tenant moved in – minus normal wear and tear.

Tenants' Rights in Summit and Medina Counties

By agreeing to rent a property, you, as a tenant, assume certain responsibilities and are afforded certain rights. You are responsible for the timely payment of rent, complying with the rules set by your landlord, paying for utilities as agreed, and repairing any damages other than normal wear and tear to the property. If and when you decide to move, you are also responsible for providing adequate notice to your landlord.

As a tenant, your rights include the right to file complaints with government agencies regarding violations of housing laws or health codes, the right to complain to your landlord for failure to comply with the lease agreement, the right to expect necessary repairs to be made in a timely manner, and the right to privacy in your home. If your landlord has violated any of your rights, the attorneys at Erb Legal LLC can help you explore your options for taking action.
