Landlord's and Tenant's Rights and Obligations Under the Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act
Posted by Alan Pritchard on September 18, 2013

In 1975, Tennessee adopted the Uniform Residential Act (“URLTA”), giving tenants and landlords significant remedies and protections.  Tennessee’s version of the URLTA is contained within Tenn. Code Ann. §§ 66-28-101 through -521, and applies to Tennessee counties with populations over 68,000.  These counties are as follows:  Anderson, Blount, Bradley, Davidson, Hamilton, Knox, Madison, Maury, Montgomery, Sevier, Shelby, Sumner, and Wilson.  Additionally, for rental agreements entered into, extended, or renewed on or after October 1, 2008, the URLTA also applies to Rutherford, Sullivan, Washington, and Williamson counties.

Enforcement of Foreign Judgment in a Commercial Debt Collection or Breach of Contract Case Tennessee
Posted by Alan Pritchard on November 18, 2012

Many times, a company or individual will obtain a judgment on a commercial debt or breach of contract case in one state, but cannot collect the judgment in the state in which it obtained the judgment because the judgment debtor has no assets in that state.  In that circumstance, the judgment creditor will have to enforce the judgment in the state in which the judgment debtor has assets.  Fortunately, many states, including Tennessee, have enacted a uniform law, the Uniform Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act, which facilliates the enrollment and enforcement of a judgment from one state in Tennessee.
