A tenant’s right to claim a retaliatory motive for an eviction cannot be waived. Sometimes, landlords will place a clause in the lease in an attempt to stop a tenant from claiming retaliation during an eviction. Any type of retaliatory eviction waiver in the rental agreement is void and not enforceable. However, the parties may be able to waive retaliation during settlement negotiations.
