Renters Rights Towards Eviction


Apartment Listing  

Eviction is a process that every renter or tenant is susceptible to. However, if the tenant has given the landlord a reason for eviction, then it is all fair. But then, it is not a perfect world and cranky landlords do exist. Every tenant should know their rights legally to avoid getting into such a situation where they are faced with eviction and they do not know what to do.

When you are moving into a newly rented home, you will need to sign on a rental agreement. Even though it is a rental agreement, make sure you keep a copy of it and also go through it word by word. So that you know what is on the rental agreement and if you are ever threatened with an eviction and know that you did not flout any of the rules on the rental agreement, then you can fight the eviction in the court.

If you are a tenant and you pay rent, you have the right to stop the landlord from entering your house. When you are paying the rent, the house is yours whether the landlord likes it or not. Also, if you have recently signed an agreement of tenancy, then the landlord cannot evict you for a period of six months starting from the date of signing the agreement. However, this period could be shorter and depends on what has been mentioned on the agreement. Even in case you have been defaulting on the rents, the landlord will still have to give proper notice and legal papers.
