Putnam County Tenant Rights Lawyer Discusses Not Having Your Lease Renewed Due to Pregnancy

| Jan 18, 2016 | Uncategorized

As experienced Putnam County Tenant Rights Lawyers, we sometimes see situations where a tenant has been in a building for a period of time and then became pregnant. In one recent case, this occurred an the tenant’s lease was not renewed after several years of being in that building. Of course, the assumption is that it’s related to the fact that she’s now going to have a child. The question becomes whether you can prove that that’s the reason for a non-renewal of the lease or whether there’s some other fact or factors that contributed to that decision.

Some of the things that we take a look at are comparing her, for example, other tenants in the building who may or may not have had their leases renewed and who may or may not have had children. Is this a building where there are a prevalence or is it something more where it’s single individuals with no children on the premises? You have take a look at all of the facts and circumstances. Certainly, that’s something our experienced Putnam County Tenant Rights Lawyers would do to evaluate whether or not you had a good legal claim to bring on that basis.
