The Law Offices of Shaun A. Hannafin is familiar with the diverse challenges and difficulties that can arise in a landlord-tenant relationship. Landlords often save for years in order to invest in property and secure the luxury of a rental income. The rental income may be used to pay off a loan, fund other investments, make property upgrades or pay for personal expenses. Landlords understandably become upset when a lessee does not pay owed rent or is blatantly damaging the rental property.  On the other hand, the tenant has the right of possession to the rental property – his home – and can feel violated when a landlord illegally interferes with or interrupts that possession.
