In the event of a serious breach of the rental agreement by the landlord or if the landlord does not keep the rental unit in good health and safety, a tenant may terminate the rental agreement by written notification of the landlord. The written notification must say what the violations are and give 14 days from the date the lessor receives the message to correct or try to correct the injuries. A tenant may also go to a court or district court to recover the actual damages and, if necessary, obtain other remedies. In cases where the law and your lease are conflicting, the law replaces the lease, said Mark Fessler, head of the housing unit at South Carolina Legal Services. But this does not deprive tenants of the obligation to read their leases carefully before signing them. The lessor has the right to enter the unit with the consent of the tenant, to verify, repair, modify, make improvements, provide necessary or agreed services or to show the premises to buyers, lenders, potential tenants, craftsmen or contractors. The tenant cannot unreasonably prevent the landlord from entering for this purpose. The landlord or his representative may enter the rental unit without the tenant`s consent in the event of an emergency, including a change in weather conditions that would pose a danger to the property. Even after the announcement of his plan to enter the premises 24 hours in advance, the lessor may, without the tenant`s consent, enter between the hours of 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. for the purpose of providing regular regular services described in the rental agreement. The lessor or broker may enter between hours 8 a.m. and 8 per cent.m.
for the purpose of providing the services requested by the tenant. The terms of your tenancy agreement will control many of the obligations and rights of the tenant and landlord. At the same time, South Carolina has passed a landlord-tenant law that applies to almost all leases and also controls your rights and obligations as tenants. Thus, the law requires both parties in good faith. All established rules should increase the convenience or safety of tenants or prevent the property from being abused, but not significantly alter the tenancy agreement.
