Common of Landlord Disputes

The Law Offices of Jonathan D. Winters have covered multiple cases involving habitability issues, where a tenant complains and a landlord does not act reasonably or in a timely manner. Issues such as water leaks, mold, and more can present emergency situations that need to be handled immediately and properly to prevent damage or harm.

All tenants, however, have basic rights that are found in their contract or agreement with their landlords. In exchange for timely rent payments, the landlord must furnish a unit fit for human habitation. If it isn't, then rent should be prorated.

Landlords also have the obligation to act reasonably and timely after being notified by a tenant.

He or she must do the following:

  • Act with reasonable care
  • Make a reasonable inspection
  • Correct any habitability issues or at least disclose that they are taking the steps to correct the problem

Is Mold & Water Damage a Violation of Tenants Rights?

Mold is actually one of the primary complaints that our tenant lawyers in Long Beach, CA handles, as it poses serious dangers to your health and the health of your family. Your landlord has an obligation to prevent serious complications by quickly addressing any mold issues and fixing the problem immediately.

The health effects of mold exposure are numerous and include:

  • Asthma and other respiratory issues
  • Throat irritation and coughing
  • Eye and vision problems
  • Skin issues like rashes
  • Serious infections
  • Wrongful death

Do not wait to report mold. If your landlord does not take the immediate and proper steps to rectify the situation, contact the Law Offices of Jonathan D. Winters immediately.
