Oklahoma City Eviction Lawyers
Representing Tenants & Landlords in Disputes
Many different types of issues between tenants and landlords can result in conflicts that may eventually lead to eviction proceedings. At Mazaheri Law Firm, we represent both tenants and landlords facing such disputes with knowledgeable and tenacious legal action. We understand that these disputes and civil court cases can be deeply impactful for both sides. As a landlord, you are a business owner who may be at risk for losing substantial income needed to operate and maintain your investment. As a tenant, you may be subject to poor property maintenance, neglect, or other matters that put your living conditions, safety, or health at risk.
Regardless of which side of the dispute you are on, an Oklahoma City eviction attorney at our firm can advise you of your legal rights, provide guidance in resolution tactics, or represent you at all stages of the eviction process. We have a successful track record of representing residential and commercial landlords and tenants in resolving these issues both inside and outside the local civil courts.
Commercial and residential landlord tenant issues are covered under the Oklahoma Statues Title 41. These regulations cover all of the various rules pertaining to the landlord-tenant relationship, including all of the rights and obligations of both parties. These rights and obligations should be clearly defined in the residential rental agreement or commercial lease that the parties sign. These agreements and leases are written contracts that are legally binding and enforceable by courts. Thus, if either party violates the terms of the contract, it can be resolved between the parties themselves or, where that fails, through the courts.
Evictions proceedings can be based on many issues between landlords and tenants that are violations of the terms of the rental agreement or lease, such as:
- The tenant has failed to pay the rent or lease
- The landlord has failed to properly maintain the property or unit, such as neglecting to repair or replace broken appliances, plumbing, electrical, heating, or other amenities provided as part of the rental agreement or lease
- The tenant has engaged in behavior that disturbs the peace and quiet enjoyment of other tenants
- The tenant has engaged in criminal activity that is threatening to the health, safety, or peace and quiet of other tenants
- The landlord has failed to return the tenant’s security deposit in a timely manner after the tenant has vacated
- The tenant has subletted the unit or property without the landlord’s consent
- The tenant has remained in possession of the unit or property after the expiration of the lease or rental agreement
- The tenant has violated the landlord’s pet policies, such as bringing in a dog when no pets are allowed
- The landlord has entered the tenant’s unit without giving prior legal notice
- The tenant has damaged the property or unit
As a landlord, it is best to ensure that you are protected by ensuring that your rental agreement or lease covers and clarifies all issues and that it is in compliance with Oklahoma law. The laws regarding the landlord-tenant relationship delineate many issues, including security deposits, necessary landlord disclosures, late fees, and other landlord and tenant rights. You will need a contract that both you and your tenant sign so as to be able to prove your case in civil court. As a tenant, it is best to ensure that you fully read and understand all of the terms of the contract you sign so as to avoid finding yourself in an eviction matter.
