Landlord Retaliation

Where a landlord initiates an eviction, increases rent, or decreases services within 180 of a tenant’s protected act, a landlord has the burden of showing a non-retaliatory motive. Landlords found guilty of retaliation may be liable for actual damages, attorney’s fees, and punitive damages.

Retaliation can also provide the basis for defending an eviction in both commercial and residential eviction lawsuits.
