As a landlord, you may have a wide variety of stressful matters to deal with. However, dealing with a difficult tenant can be particularly problematic. At Bradford Miller Law, our Chicago law firm is very familiar with the different types of problems that can arise with regard to eviction. Moreover, we know that there are many reasons why evicting a tenant becomes necessary.
Unfortunately, landlords sometimes rent to tenants who fail to abide by the rental agreement. Whether a tenant refuses to pay rent or damages the property due to reckless behavior, landlords may feel overwhelmed and unsure of how to handle the situation. However, landlords who are in this position should not feel trapped and should take a close look at their options immediately.
Regrettably, some tenants behave recklessly and cause significant damage to the property. Tenants who exhibit this behavior may simply not care about respecting the premises. In some cases, difficult tenants can create additional difficulties and problems that their landlord may be responsible for. For example, if the tenant has viscous dogs, this could create problems for others in the community and the landlord. As a result, you should not feel trapped if you have a tenant who you want to evict because they have been violating the rental agreement or, in some cases, are breaking laws.
Moving forward with an eviction can be stressful, which is why landlords should know their rights. On our eviction page, you can go over more information related to evicting a tenant.
