You Need An Experienced Tenant Attorney Who Knows The Law
If your home is under rent control, you have the right to return after the fire. A landlord must offer you back your home within 30 days after completing repairs. You should inform your landlord by sending him a letter with your current address, telephone number, and email address. Your renter’s rights need to be protected.
- You do not have to pay rent until your home is repaired. Once it is repaired, the landlord cannot increase the rent without the Rent Board’s approval.
- If the landlord refuses to allow you back in your home after the repairs and rents it to someone else, then your landlord has wrongfully evicted you.
- If the fire was caused by your landlord’s negligence, you may be able to sue your landlord.
