What is a Complaint to Landlord?

One of the benefits of renting, as a tenant, is that the landlord is responsible for the major maintenance of the property; however, you may need to use a Complaint to Landlord to get work done that he or she hasn't performed. Perhaps a dishwasher needs repaired, or the upstairs neighbors are inconsiderate. There are many different issues that may arise. A Complaint to Landlord can be the first step in getting an issue fixed. 
Before using a Complaint to Landlord, it's a good idea to make sure that your landlord is obligated to make the repairs you want—it may be specified in the lease that he or she is not responsible for the issue you want addressed. You can use a Complaint to Landlord document to alert your landlord to the problem, which is a written notice that can be sent using registered or certified mail. Proof of mailing ensures that the landlord can't say later that your complaint was not received. A Complaint to Landlord is a useful tool that can help you resolve a problem in a timely, equitable way, so that you get your money's worth as a tenant.

When to use a Complaint to Landlord:

  • You want to complain about something, like maintenance issues, to your landlord.
  • You have a maintenance request.
