Understanding Tenant Rights Including What Do When Rights Are Violated By a Landlord
To a tenant, a rental dwelling is home. Of course, home means something unique to everyone and these special feelings are recognized. With this said, DK Legal Practice also recognizes that impartial empathy is often necessary to remain focused upon the legal issues and to remain an objective advisor and negotiator. DK Legal Practice helps tenants to resolve disputes by first reviewing the facts and issues and then by working to negotiate a resolution with the landlord. If resolution is evasive, DK Legal Practice can prepare the required Landlord Tenant Board forms and advocate at Landlord Tenant Board hearings.
