Affordable Legal Advice From Renters’ Rights Lawyers

Renters are entitled to specific rights that should be plainly stated in their lease. But many renters are taken advantage of, requiring the help of renters’ rights lawyers to get them out of sticky situations.

When should I hire a renters’ rights lawyer?

There are many situations where it may be beneficial to consult with a renters’ rights lawyer. For example, if your landlord is trying to evict you without cause, or if they are raising your rent without proper notice, a lawyer can help you challenge these actions and begin resolving disputes with your landlord.

If you think that your landlord is violating your rights, you’re being discriminated against or if you’ve been served with an unlawful eviction notice, you should talk to a renters’ rights lawyer through LegalShield who can help protect your rights and ensure you’re treated fairly.

Whether you’re in a dispute with your landlord, about to sign a lease or looking to move out of your rented home or apartment, these LegalShield membership plans can help you solve and prevent problems with your landlord, at a price that won’t break the bank.

How it works

Don’t let your landlord trample on your rights. We have legal help for renters:

1. Advice & consultation

The first step is providing you with the advice and consultation you need to understand your rights. We’ll evaluate your situation and give you an idea of what to expect going forward.

This is also an opportunity where you can ask questions about your best course of action moving forward.

2. Represent you in court

Rental disputes can be messy and head to court. Luckily, we give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have an experienced legal team on your side. You shouldn’t have to face your landlord alone—let us help you.

3. Review documents & contracts

There are laws in place to protect renters from unfair treatment. Unfortunately, not all landlords follow these laws—but we can help you fully understand your rights when they don’t.

We’ll work with you to ensure that your landlord is complying with all local, state, and federal laws, such as fairly negotiating rent increases. We’ll also help you file a complaint if need be.

One of the most important things a renters’ rights lawyer can do is review your current documents. This includes your lease, rental application, and any other relevant paperwork. We’ll review these documents to make sure that they’re fair and legal.

4. Draft documents & contracts

In some cases, it may be necessary to draft new documents or contracts. For example, if your landlord is trying to evict you without cause, an emergency lawyer can help you draft a document that clearly states your rights.

We’ll also help you draft any new documents or agreements that may be needed. These documents will protect your rights and ensure that you are treated fairly.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

How much does a renters' rights lawyer cost?

Many lawyers who specialize in renters’ rights offer their services for a free initial consultation. After that, they may charge an hourly rate or a flat fee. The advantage to working with a LegalShield provider lawyer is that most renter issues are included in the low monthly subscription rate of under $1 a day. You can view our LegalShield personal plan FAQs for more information about our pricing.

When should I hire a renters' rights lawyer?

If you’re facing eviction or have already been evicted, or your lease has been violated by your landlord, you should hire a lawyer as soon as possible. This is one of the most common landlord-tenant disputes. If you are not sure whether you have a case, you can still consult with a lawyer to get their professional opinion.

What are a renters' rights when property is sold?

When a property is sold, the new landlord must honor the terms of your current lease. They can’t raise your rent or change any other terms of your lease without giving you proper notice. If you have a year-long lease, the new landlord must honor that lease. However, if you have a month-to-month lease, the new landlord can give you 30 days’ notice to vacate the premises.

What rights do renters have with foreclosures?

Renters have the right to stay in their homes until the end of their lease, even if the property is foreclosed on. However, if the new owner wants to live on the property, they can give you a 90-day notice to vacate. If you have any questions about your rights as a renter, you should consult with a renters’ rights lawyer.
