Landlord Tenant Cases

Where there is a tenant, there surely would be a landlord because the two parties are like a hand and a glove but it is not such a cozy relationship like the hand and the inanimate glove with the former two, who constantly have fluctuating differences cropping up between over time. As real estate lawyers who regularly address landlord tenant issues, we have found that even the best of relationships can sour over time.


Landlords own the real estate and they either lease out or charge rent to give their properties out to those who would be willing to pay the lease or the specified rent on prior agreement.

Landlords have responsibilities and they are compelled to adhere to local, State and Federal statutory laws and ensure that the real estate that they are contemplating to either lease or rent conforms to acceptable laws.

They would need to ensure that all repairs are carried out at the property and the real estate whatever it would be is habitable and usable whilst having all the necessary amenities and is in a condition acceptable by the lessee or renter and within legal provisions.

The Landlord would also need to demarcate the exact boundaries of the property that he is leasing or renting and such boundaries would need to be clearly mentioned in the deeds of lease or rent.

The deed executed should clearly indicate all the relevant clauses that accompany the lease agreement between the Landlord and the Tenant because both could agree on any conditions prior to singing the deeds of lease or rent.

Either deed would need to be notarized by a notary and registered in the respective Land Registry for the document to be legalized.

If there are any disputes later on the Landlord could seek redress from the relevant courts of law by filing an action against the Tenant.


Tenants take possession of real estate to live, conduct business or for any other agreed purposes from Landlords after the initial negotiations are completed as to what the terms encompassing the agreement would be.

The Tenant once in possession of the real estate is compelled by law to strictly adhere to the purposes that he has agreed with the Landlord and live, conduct business or use the real estate for the specific purposes mentioned in the deed of lease or rent.

The Tenant cannot deviate from what has been initially agreed upon and if he would need to do so would either have to sign a new deed or make amendments to the existing deed, depending on what could be mutually agreed upon with the Landlord.

Landlord Tenant Disputes and Issues in Utah

Disputes and issues would generally arise between the Landlord and the Tenant when either of the parties is in breach or default of the agreed terms of the signed deed of lease or rent.

This could be anything and when that happens either party who is aggrieved could seek redress from the respective courts of law for which there are umpteen laws legislated which could be specifically addressed by the attorneys retained by the party.
