Eviction disputes can force you out of your home

Many Minneapolis residents dream of owning their own homes. It is part of the American dream and secures a person a certain level of freedom to know that the person is the proprietor of the land on which the person’s residence sits. However, houses are expensive even in modest neighborhoods and it can take some prospective buyers many years just to save up enough money to have down payments.

While they wait and save, many individuals choose to rent houses and apartments in which to live. Renting can be a good housing option for individuals who do not want the responsibilities of home ownership or for whom flexibility in moving is a possibility. Unfortunately, though, some renters run into problems with their landlords when conflicts arise between the parties.

Rental or lease agreements often stipulate the terms under which a renter must operate in order to remain in a let residence. Terms regarding rental payments, maintenance of property conditions and others can be outlined that give both renter and landlord notice of the expectations and possible consequences of breaking the established rules. When landlords claim that their tenants have violated those contractual obligations, eviction notices can be filed.

Eviction forces a renter to leave his leased home. It can require a person to pick up his life and resettle in a new location. For many people eviction is a headache that should be avoided.

When a residential property dispute arises over leased property, an involved party may need support understanding his rights. The law firm of Burns & Hansen can guide you through your property problems and work toward a resolution that may keep people in their leased home.
