Retaliation for Tenant Complaints

State and local laws prohibit a landlord from taking action against a tenant (such as eviction) in retaliation for the tenant exercising her legitimate rights. For example, if an eviction is commenced within six months of the tenant action, a legal presumption (shifting the burden of proof) is created against the landlord, making his ability to prevail that much harder.

If tenants can prove that an eviction was primarily motivated to seek revenge against them for their proper assertive behavior, large court awards can (and have been) awarded, including punitive damages and attorneys’ fees.
