Ohio Tenant Dispute usually arises when either a tenant or a landlord does not live up to the rental agreement. The rental agreement is a written document that lists all the rights and responsibilities of tenants and landlords. When either party flouts the rules, disputes may arise. If the tenant does not return the rental unit in the same condition as it was when he occupied it, the landlord may sue him for damages. If the landlord invades the privacy of the tenant by visiting the rental unit at unearthly hours and without prior notice, the tenant has reason to complain. Ohio law also does not allow a landlord to force a tenant out by shutting off utilities, interrupting services or changing the locks or denying access to the tenant by any other means. It does not permit the landlord to remove outside windows, roof and doors in order to force the tenant out of the rental unit. In case the landlord resorts to such tactics, the tenant has the right to sue the landlord for actual or consequential damages or 3 months' rent, whichever is greater plus court and attorney's fees.
Thus Ohio Tenant Disputes may have various causes, but the Law has answers and solutions to all these disputes. Disputes can be minimized by having a written lease agreement and by strictly
adhering to the terms and conditions of the lease agreement. The Ohio Landlord Tenant Law also defines the rights and responsibilities of landlords and tenants. Landlords and tenants can refer to this for solutions to any disputes.
