Are You Involved In A Landlord-Tenant Dispute?

Disputes between landlords and tenants can be frustrating and unsettling. A tenant may not be paying rent on time or may be annoying their neighbors, the other tenants. A landlord may not be holding up his or her end of the lease terms agreed upon. Being treated unfairly or with disrespect causes hard feelings, even anger. When your home is involved, these disputes can be very personal and heated. So what do you do when no one can agree on a solution to the problem?

Peter G. Aziz represents landlords and tenants. He understands the frustrations each side must face and can assist you in coming to agreements.

Representing Tenants Who Have a Dispute

Peter also works with tenants who have a dispute with how a landlord is treating them or a landlord who is not meeting the terms of the lease.

He can assist you with many issues, including:

  • Discrimination
  • Being evicted wrongfully
  • Security deposit withheld wrongfully
  • Protecting your rights under the lease agreement
  • Violation of lease terms by a landlord

The Difference Between Tenants And Occupants Is Important In Ejectments

Many people confuse these two terms, but it's important to understand the distinction to understand the laws involved. A tenant is someone who pays rent. An occupant is someone who doesn't pay rent and isn't authorized to be there. Examples of occupants are a squatter, trespasser or a previous owner in a foreclosure action.

If you have purchased a bank owned home or property and there is a squatter, please contact Peter today at 973-778-4911 to discuss your options. Mr. Aziz is experienced in filing ejectments and will guide you through the complicated process that is very different than an eviction.
