Landlord Tenant Law

Both landlord and tenants in Minnesota have rights.  The rights depend on the terms of the lease and Minnesota Law.  For example, a landlord may not use “self-help” and simply change the locks when a tenant does not pay rent.  Rather, a landlord must evict the tenant.  An eviction is usually a quick proceeding that allows the landlord to have the property back when a tenant fails to pay rent or otherwise breaches a lease.   Landlords and Tenants must be mindful of the laws regarding eviction and the rights and remedies under any lease agreement.   Malkerson Gunn Martin represents commercial landlords and tenants in lease disputes.  In addition, our lawyers have decades of experience in drafting and enforcing complex commercial leases.
