Your Defense Against Illegal Charges By A Landlord

When you sign a lease, you agree to pay rent and maybe some utilities. What happens when your landlord starts tacking on charges that don’t seem right? In Maryland, you have rights as a tenant, and if your landlord is adding illegal fees to your bill, it is time to take a stand.

At Santoni, Vocci & Ortega, LLC, we have seen Maryland landlords overstep their bounds. You may have standing to take action if your landlord imposes charges for things you’ve already paid for, or for services and utilities that the law does not permit your landlord to charge. With our extensive experience in fighting for tenants’ rights, we’re prepared to challenge these illegal charges on your behalf.

Your Rights As A Residential Tenant

As a tenant in Baltimore and across the state, it’s crucial to understand what constitutes an illegal charge. Whether it’s an illegal water bill, an excessive fee for a late payment or unexpected fees tacked onto your monthly rent, our attorneys know how to identify what’s permissible and what’s not.

Unjust fees can quickly add to the financial burden of maintaining a home. We believe no one should have to pay more than what’s fair. We’re hands-on lawyers who are comfortable tackling these issues head-on. We draw on decades of combined experience, which we use to build effective arguments and counter landlord’s claims.

If your landlord is demanding you pay for fees that don’t seem right, you can take action. You are not alone in this fight. Santoni, Vocci & Ortega, LLC, has the know-how and dedication to stand up for your rights.
