Retaliatory or Discriminatory??

Terminations of tenancy and rent increases that are retaliatory or discriminatory are illegal!

A court may find that the landlord illegally retaliated against the tenant if a landlord takes certain actions within ninety days after a tenant asserts their rights or within ninety days after a government inspection or proceeding resulting from a tenant complaint.

There is a presumption of retaliation if a landlord raises rent, initiates an eviction, reduces services or increases tenant obligations within ninety days after a tenant exercises their legal rights.
