Landlords and tenants both have certain rights when it comes to an eviction proceeding. Typically, when a tenant has failed to make rent payments on time, the landlord may pursue an eviction action through the courts. However, under certain circumstances, tenants do have the right to withhold monthly payments. Make sure these rights are clearly understood before beginning the eviction process:
Landlord’s Reason for Eviction
- Payment is not being made on time
- Tenant has violated leasing agreements
Tenant’s Reasons for Withholding Rent
- Landlord has not provided maintenance/repairs
- Landlord has violated certain agreements
When a landlord or tenant believes either party has violated certain rights, it’s important to have a reputable law firm experienced in Minnesota housing laws. Our landlord/tenant attorneys will work with both parties to make sure they understand their rights before taking further steps.
