Landlord/Tenant Law

Landlord/Tenant Law

Minnesota Landlord/Tenant Law

Disputes arise between landlords and tenants, but they can often be avoided if the lease agreements are clear on both party’s responsibilities. We can review, or draft lease agreements to ensure they are in compliance with Minnesota laws and when needed, we can help handle disputes between tenants and landlords.

Having a lease agreement which clearly spells out the responsibilities and rights of both the landlord and tenant can help avoid disputes later. Clauses including right to enter, clear rent payment due dates, and policies regarding sub-leasing must all be included in a lease agreement.

Minnesota Eviction Proceedings

Eviction is a legal process which must be followed. While landlords have the right to collect their rent in a timely manner, there are some instances such as poor maintenance, failure to repair, or other violations could result in a tenant having the right to temporarily withhold rent payments.

Other Housing Disputes

Landlords who believe their tenants are violating the terms of a lease by sub-leasing, or tenants who believe their landlord is violating their tenant rights should contact an attorney who is well-versed in Minnesota housing law. It is important for both parties to understand their rights.
