Unfortunately, whether you are a property owner or if you rent property from someone, you can encounter various issues that would fall under the legal concepts of landlord/tenants disputes. Some of the main issues include disputes over lease agreements, tenant rights, landlord responsibility for repairs to the property, rent, eviction, and more.
Many landlord/tenant issues can be resolved just by knowing your rights and responsibilities. The relationship between landlord and tenant is a special one. If legal action needs to be taken, many times this will deteriorate that landlord/tenant relationship but still require you to remain professional to maintain a positive reputation in the community.
In Tennessee, most landlord/tenant issues are governed under the Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act.
