Landlord Tenant Attorney
We have become so accustomed to signing documents without reading them. How many times have you read the agreement before you update your cellular phone? A majority of individuals scroll to the bottom of the document, clicks agree and update their phone. When it comes to rental agreements, do not fall into that trap. Thoroughly reading this legally binding document before you sign it could be the difference between enjoying your living space and despising it. Some items outlined in this document may include the tenant’s rights for when and if the landlord fails to make necessary repairs, as well as termination and eviction rules. The attorneys at Bevilacqua & Bevilacqua are here to explain specific Rhode Island State and federal laws for when it comes time to rent. Specific laws include security deposit limits and returns, local ordinances, and noise regulations. We find that when tenants and landlords keep an open line of communication, they are able to resolve a majority of conflict before it even occurs. It is important to keep in mind, that documenting and saving copies of correspondence is a smart preventative measure. Both landlords and tenants have specific rights and if it comes down to a dispute, then you want the proof and a team of knowledgeable Bevilacqua & Bevilacqua lawyers on your side.
