Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act
Many of our clients own one or more residential rental properties. For the most part these clients are great people and always try to do the right thing. However, there always seems to be a lot of confusion and myths as to what the law actually says in regard to their various rental problems. Most of the time, if the rental property lies in a certain county in Tennessee where the population is over 75,000 (as defined by the 2010 census), like here in Wilson and many of the surrounding counties, the law is set forth in the Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (URLTA) of Tennessee.
Even though these laws can be somewhat difficult to understand, they are a guide which can lead a landlord, with the help and advice of his attorney, through the many minefields of landlord tenant law. If the county’s population is under 75,000 then the laws are mostly governed by Tennessee case law and are much more difficult to traverse.
In almost all instances of landlord tenant disputes it takes an attorney who is a veteran in this area. Our law firm has handled hundreds of these disputes, many of which settle outside of litigation. If you have a legal question about your rental matters please contact us today.
