Landlord Tenant Disputes

Freeman & Fuson represents both landlords and tenants who find themselves in a dispute with the other. Whether you are facing an eviction or have a tenant who has breached the terms of the lease, we can help you with those issues or any number of the other problems that may arise. Tennessee has a set of laws that covers landlords and their tenants and the duties owed by both.

The duties of either the landlord or the tenant varies from county to county in Tennessee. That is because the Uniform Residential Landlord Tenant Acts (“URLTA”) applies to counties with a population of 68,000 or more. (Anderson, Blount, Bradley, Davidson, Greene, Hamilton, Knox, Madison, Maury, Montgomery, Putnam, Rutherford, Sevier, Shelby, Sullivan, Sumner, Washington, Williamson and Wilson).


Landlords have a special interest in preserving the premises they own and making sure that their tenants comply with the both the lease and the URLTA. Rental properties in Middle Tennessee are in high demand and having a tenant fail to pay rent or cause damage to the premises can result in lost revenue. Protecting your property and revenue are of the utmost importance, and Freeman & Fuson can help. From helping construct a specific lease agreement for your property, resolving disputes through negotiations, to pursuing an eviction and recovering damages and lost rent, our firm handles your case quickly and efficiently.


Freeman & Fuson also assists tenants who find themselves in disputes with their landlords. Whether facing eviction or a landlord who refuses to make repairs, we can help you with those issues or any number of other problems that come up. Under the URLTA, a landlord has a number of duties that they must comply with which includes disclosures that must be made, how they handle a security deposit, making repairs and specific requirements when a landlord attempts to terminate a lease. Freeman & Fuson can help negotiate a resolution to your dispute and, if needed, prepare your case for hearing.

Joey is a talented lawyer who cares about his clients. Sarah his assistant is a true professional, but more than that they care about you as a person first. I would highly recommend the team. Bill Hoskinson
Relief! Mark Freeman is the best lawyer I have ever had. He took care of my Criminal Case in one day. Answered all phone calls and returned them all as well. He didn't hesitate to answer any of my questions. I am very thankful he had my case dropped! Not many lawyers can do that. I highly recommend him. He treats you as more so family than a client. If I ever have another case Mark Freeman will be my lawyer. Peter P.
Joey: Just wanted you to know how appreciative I am to be represented by such an outstanding attorney. You did an awesome job. Thank you for your help and support throughout. I have NEVER gotten so much for my money with any other attorney before. I'm looking forward to referring you as much as possible in the future. Thanks again buddy. Charles G.
I just want to say that Mrs. Carolanne King is the greatest lawyer I have ever had. She is truly amazing and knows how to get the job done. She walked with me through the whole court process and worked for me when everyone else said that they could not help me. I am truly grateful for the law firm of Freeman and Fuson. D.D
