eviction letter 300x117 - Wrongful Eviction Attorney Serving Columbia, MDFinding a place to call home is not always easy. If you are looking to rent a house or an apartment in Columbia, Maryland, or the nearby towns of Clarksville, Elkridge, Elliott City, or North Laurel, you know that once you find a rental property and put down roots, the neighborhood becomes your home.

The Eviction Laws in Columbia, MD

The wrongful eviction lawyers at Whitney, LLP can help you understand the applicable state laws. While landlords have rights along with their tenants, they sometimes abuse them. For example, a landlord can evict a tenant for failing to pay rent on time but must file the proper documents with the local court and receive a Court Order.

The filings are supposed to give the reason for eviction among other information, but this is sometimes falsified or exaggerated. If evicted before the landlord completes this process, a tenant becomes a victim of illegal eviction. Furthermore, even if the landlord has filed the paperwork and gets a court date, a tenant can remain in the home until the court orders the eviction.

What Are My Tenant Legal Rights for Eviction in Columbia, MD?

A landlord can begin the eviction process if you are late paying your rent, but you have tenant legal rights for eviction. By paying your rent in full before the court date along with any associated court costs, you generally can stop the eviction. Get your rental contract and your rental receipts or cancelled checks together because if you go to court, you will need to submit that documentation. You can also appeal an eviction if you start the process within the time allotted by court rules.

Without a Court Order, the landlord cannot evict you in Maryland.
