Tenant's Rights Sponsors

GotTrouble.com knows that the most contentious event in any landlord-tenant relationship is the eviction. The landlord believes that the tenant must leave, and the tenant believes that the landlord has no right to throw her out (or the tenant simply has difficulty finding another place). The landlord wants to resolve the problem quickly and cheaply. Tenant law does provide for a fairly speedy remedy (compared to other tenant lawsuits), but tenant law also protects the tenant from arbitrary actions that force her out of her home.
