Dealing with a Landlord Tyrant

Transferred employees need not be victims


Landlords are reasonable by and large. They understand it is more important to have paying tenants than empty apartments. Now and then a very unreasonable one crops up and this person is more than a headache. He or she will demand certain things from a tenant and refuse to honor sections of the lease. Needed repairs to the air-conditioning or plumbing may go unnoticed for weeks at a time. It all creates a real pain for a tenant who is tied down to a long-term lease.

It is also a serious problem for management. A relocated employee is covered by the relocation policy, but that rarely extends beyond the final moving day. Supervisors are forced to listen to stories of a landlord who is making life miserable for a recently transferred employee. Rather than have a situation where that person is unhappy and not productive, it is a smart idea to have a group legal plan that has services needed to protect tenant rights.
