As a renter, you have rights. If your landlord is failing to make necessary repairs, refusing to deal with noisy neighbors or violating your rights to privacy, we can help.
At the St. Charles law office of Flesner Wentzel, our attorneys help renters enforce their rights, and hold landlords liable for their wrongful acts.
St. Louis Renters Rights Attorneys
You have the right to a safe, habitable rental property.
Every rental home has an implied warranty of habitability — that means as a tenant you have the right to basic health and safety needs such as air, water, heat and electricity.
If your landlord is not providing you with these basic needs, if there are unsafe conditions such as holes in the floor, crumbling ceilings or dangerous electrical wiring that your landlord has failed to repair, or if your landlord is refusing to hire exterminators to deal with insect or rodent infestations, you may have a legal claim against him or her.
Tenants have the right to quiet enjoyment of their rental property. If noisy or rowdy neighbors are interfering with your ability to live peacefully in your property, your landlord must take steps to stop the disturbance. Tenants also have a right to privacy in their rental properties. It is illegal for landlords to enter your rental unit without giving you notice first.
At Flesner Wentzel, our lawyers hold landlords responsible for their failure to repair properties and keep them in safe, working order.
Together, we will get you out of your lease while keeping your security deposit. We also help tenants get reimbursed for the money they have spent — out of their own pocket — paying for repairs that the landlord was responsible for making.
If you are facing eviction, there are steps you can take to stall the process. At Flesner Wentzel, we help tenants get the time they need to arrange new living situations.
