Both landlords and tenants have obligations they are responsible for during a tenancy. When an issue during tenancy arises, the main question to ask is who is liable for the issue? The landlord or the tenant. Of course, this answer depends but generally Indiana law has set out specific obligations for each party.
(1) Deliver clean and habitable property; (2) Provide and maintain various utilities and appliances; (3) Keep common areas clean/proper repair; and (4) Make repairs upon reasonable notice from tenant.
(1) Comply with applicable health and housing codes; (2) Reasonablness in cleaniless, maintenance, and use; (3) Return property in clean and proper condition; and (4) Give notice to landlord of issues and provide access for repairs;
When these obligations are not met, the landlord or the tenant have rights of enforcement such as bringing a cause of action against the faulty party.
An experienced collections lawyer can explain what your rights of enforcement are and how you can remedy your situation. Call (574) 784-1019 for assistance with your collection needs including landlord tenant issues.
