The Delaware Landlord Tenant Code is not overly complicated, but can be very confusing to unrepresented parties. As a Landlord dealing with an eviction action, it is essential that you follow the proper procedure to give your tenant notice and file the Complaint with the Justice of the Peace Court, or your case may be dismissed and you will be forced to start over, causing a delay of several months. Our attorneys have extensive experience with Landlord Tenant law and will help you recover possession of your rental property as fast as the law allows, the first time. In addition, many leases used by Landlords do not fully comply with Delaware law or do not adequately protect their rights and investment property. Our attorneys can review and revise your existing lease or provide you with one tailored to your specific needs, along with other documents or disclosures that a landlord is legally required to give to a tenant at the outset of the tenancy.
As a tenant with a good faith claim, if you do not assert your rights in a timely and proper manner, you may have no defense to your landlord’s claim. Our attorneys can advise you on your rights and remedies and help you protect your interests to the extent available under your lease and Delaware law.
