Can A Landlord Recover Attorney Fees From A Bad Tenant?

Yes. If the lease provides for attorney fees for a landlord upon the tenant`s breach of the lease, the landlord may recover attorney fees. Attorney fee provisions must be carefully drafted in favor of the landlord to insure the landlord`s rights, otherwise a tenant may challenge the attorney fee provision.
