Apartment Pet Policies for Dogs

Posted by Josh Kahane on July 11th, 2012

Tennessee law allows owners or managers to decide whether to allow tenants with pets to lease an apartment on property.  For those communities which do allow pets, particularly those that allow dogs, a well thought out pet policy is very important to ensure the safety of tenants, visitors, staff, and the property itself.

When VIOLENCE strikes YOUR property...

Posted by Josh Kahane on December 14th, 2011

Owners and managers owe a legal duty to their tenants to provide, as much as possible, a safe place to live.  But even the most effective managers and on-site security staff, face incidences of violence involving a tenant or the invited guest of a tenant and, even more often, on-site staff in the leasing office can be    subjected to threats of violence against them or the property by disgruntled tenants.  In these circumstances, it is most important to quickly apply the protection offered under the Landlord Tenant Act to  remove the tenant from the property and ensure the safety and well-being of all other people on site.
