Combo spoiler alert and disclaimer: a Virginia landlord-tenant lawyer is writing this. I know that my profession gives me a skewed view of life.
“Tenants don’t pay for an hour of my time to sit in my office and tell me their landlord is the greatest human on the planet, the rent is below-market, the house is fantastic, the lawn mows itself, and Mrs. Landlady bakes them apple pies on Sunday. I am absolutely certain that there probably are landlord-tenant relationships out there just like that one. But I never hear about those situations.” No. I hear about the misery………
I live in a world where every landlord tries to wring 13 months’ of rent out of every 12 months in a year.“Good news! It doesn’t have to be this way. However, as with most legal issues, there are correct ways to get things done or resolved. Because the knee-jerk, angry, on-the-spot self-help way is almost always the incorrect way, I thought I’d make a little list for those who live on the Tenant side of landlord/tenant law.”
