If a landlord is aware of a defective condition in a rental unit and he or she does not adequately repair the problem within a reasonable amount of time, the landlord can be liable to the tenant in a lawsuit and the tenant can recover monetary compensation.
Sometimes the landlord’s failure to repair a defective condition in a tenant-occupied unit is an attempt to force a tenant to move out of their home. This can be considered an attempted wrongful eviction and can also make the landlord liable to his or her tenant for monetary compensation.

By taking actions like writing letters to landlords and filing lawsuits on behalf of tenants, the Humphreys Joiner Law Group, LLP helps tenants fight for their rights to habitable living conditions and to financial compensation for violations.
