LANDLORD AND TENANT RIGHTS




EVICTIONS

Nothing is worse than having a tenant who is not paying you the rent they agreed to pay and is living in the apartment free of charge. The tenant may even be destroying your investment and damaging your property while they are staying in an apartment that they're not paying for. Thankfully, a landlord can use the eviction process to remedy the situation. Some of the more common reasons for evictions in Connecticut are non-payment of rent, lapse of time, nuisance, breach of lease, or never, or no longer, having the right or privilege to occupy the premises. In Connecticut a landlord must first serve a notice to quit on the tenant to quit possession of the rental premises. If the tenant does not vacate in the time required by law after service of the notice to quit, it is necessary to file a complaint and summons with the Housing Court. Once the paperwork has been filed with the Housing Court, the landlord may be able to either obtain a default judgment or obtain a Court date. 

Should it be necessary to go to Court, having a competent and skilled attorney is essential. Attorney McEntee can easily navigate your case through the eviction process. It  may be able to negotiate with your tenant in Housing Court to get them to start paying you again. There also ways for a landlord to continue to accept payment from the tenant while still continuing with the eviction process. Call me know to learn whether this applies in your case.

Attorney McEntee is available for help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and can be reached for a free consultation at (203)
982-8396.

*Please note that Attorney McEntee does NOT represent tenants in the eviction process and does not provide a consultation to tenants who are being evicted.


DRAFTING RESIDENTIAL LEASE AGREEMENTS

Whether you are a first time landlord or have years of experience, a well drafted lease is essential. A lease helps protects your rights and your investment. Many of the cookie-cutter, fill-in-the-blank type leases available on commercial websites are not written with Connecticut Law in mind. Nor are they tailored to your specific needs and requirements. Attorney McEntee can draft a lease agreement that complies with all Connecticut Laws and all applicable Federal Housing Laws. Attorney McEntee can draft a lease that is focused on your exact situation. A well drafted lease can help you collect your rent in a more efficient manner, clarify exactly when rent is due and what happens when it is not paid on time, and specify what condition the premises must be kept in and who is responsible for the upkeep of the premises. Attorney McEntee is available for help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and can be reached for a free consultation at (203) 982-8396.




RETURN OF SECURITY DEPOSIT

Connecticut Law requires a landlord to refund your security deposit within 30 days of the termination of the tenancy or within 15 days after receiving notice of the tenant's forwarding address, whichever is later. A landlord must provide a itemized statement of damages accounting for any portion of the security deposit that is not returned. If the landlord does not comply with the above law, then the landlord may be liable for payment of double the security deposit. If your former landlord is not willing to comply with the law concerning security deposits, call now for a free consultation. Attorney McEntee is available for help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and can be reached for a free consultation at (203) 982-8396.



INTEREST ON SECURITY DEPOSITS

Connecticut Law requires landlords to pay tenants interest each year on their security deposit. If you have paid a security deposit to a landlord and have not been receiving your yearly interest on the deposit, cal now for a free consultation. Attorney McEntee is available for help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and can be reached for a free consultation at (203) 982-8396.
