Media Landlord Tenant Attorney Discusses Breaking the Lease
As an experienced Media Landlord Tenant Attorney I am constantly asked what to do when a tenant breaks the lease. It’s important to know that if your tenant breaches the lease you should be pursuing every opportunity to get that tenant out of the unit with all due haste. The issue that usually arises is a landlord provides a little extra time for the tenant to pay rent and that extra time then becomes from a few days to another month. When the landlord finally takes action to evict the tenant, you may be one or more than one month behind in rent. When your tenant’s not paying rent, you can get the eviction, but you’re most likely not going to be able to recover the rent because your tenant doesn’t have financial means to satisfy the judgment. Although you may want to be generous and give your tenant time, you may just be hurting yourself in the long run by allowing them extra time to stay in.
