In Clarksville and throughout the rest of Montgomery County, landlords and tenants are bound by the rules and regulations set forth in the Uniform Residential Landlord Tenant Act. Passed in 1972, this act clarifies and standardizes the responsibilities of both parties in a landlord/tenant agreements. Our firm is well-acquainted with this act and how it applies to both parties, and may be able to use it to help you hold your tenant accountable for damage they’ve caused, rent they haven’t paid, and much more. Surrounding Counties and cities, however, have not adopted this legislation and use different rules and standards to govern landlord/tenant agreements, including common law. Our firm is capable and experienced in handling both types of disputes and can provide you with counsel, wherever you’re located.
