Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Landlords have it good insofar as they collect rent from tenants on their property without putting in too much work on a day-to-day basis. But landlords should not get too relaxed; those who do nothing will find themselves facing negligence claims when someone is injured on a rental property.
There are many ways for people to get hurt, and there is no way to ensure that no injuries will ever happen on a property. But landlords can mitigate risk by paying attention to details and making maintenance a priority. Tenants should be aware of their rights and responsibilities, too. When a landlord falls short and someone gets hurt, consider one of the following common claims arising from the landlord-tenant relationship.
If you have been injured on a rented property or elsewhere, speak to a lawyer. Many personal injury attorneys consult for free or a minimal fee and will be happy to discuss your case. Similarly, if you are a worried landlord who wants to ensure that you have all your bases covered, talk to a local real estate attorney about the specific laws that apply to a property of the size you are renting out in that particular location. Get guidance.
