Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: We are leasing a home with a pool. The problem is with the owner chosen pool person. We do not have a working relationship with this person and the property mgmt has told us he locked the pump timer per owners instructions. Is that legal and we do not want this person on our property any longer. What rights and alternatives do we have.

Answer: You do not have a right to determine who does repair or maintenance work for the landlord. If there is a problem you should raise the issue with the landlord and ask them to choose someone else. If the problem is serious enough you could seek an injunction against harassment against the pool person.
