Who do I sue?
I am suing my former landlord. On the lease it says this agreement is between me and then has the landlords name (not the name of a business). They do own a property management company though, so I am not sure if when filing my small claims suit, if I should put the landlords names or the company's name. There are two landlord names on the lease(husband and wife).

You sue the LL and the wife if both are listed.

You sue the 2 landlords. The company name is not on the lease, therefore has no responsibility.

You sue the landlord, as that's who you have the agreement with

landlord's name, not managing company name.

You sue the people named on the lease. Their other business(es), if they have any, have nothing to do with your lease. Landlords do not have to register a company name in order to rent out an apartment or house to someone.Source(s): Certified Paralegal, with 25+ years' experience & with Landlord & Tenant law experience.

small claims court does not give you any advice on who to sue....just list them both (landlord and company).
if they aren't leasing under the company, the company will be found innocent by the court

When you go to small claims court, there is typically a paralegal who can give you guidance on who you should list as the defendant(s). The defendant may vary based on your alleged complaint.
