Retaliatory Eviction

This type of eviction happens when the landlord takes an action against a tenant for acting as an tenant activist. If the landlord seeks to evict the tenant for informing government agencies of code violations or requesting that the landlord make repairs and maintain the rental property in fit and habitable condition, a retaliatory eviction claim may be a valid defense to an eviction action.
