Over the years, legislatures at the federal, state and local levels have taken a great interest in adopting laws to regulate the relationships between landlords and tenants. The result is an often confusing body of law.
Landlord tenant relations are heavily governed not only by the lease between the landlord and tenant, but also by specific laws that often differ between one municipality and another.
Landlord Legal Representation
We can represent landlords throughout the entire range of issues that arise under landlord and tenant law, from drafting and reviewing leases and land contracts to litigation or mediation of landlord tenant disputes.
If you are a landlord and feel you need to start the eviction process or take collection action on unpaid rent or the cost of repairing damage to the property, you should consult with an attorney who will explain how to avoid headaches by taking these actions in full compliance with the law.
Once you contact our offices, we will immediately begin the eviction process. We will file the eviction paperwork the same day we receive the notice.
Tenant Legal Representation
We represent tenants who believe their rights are not being respected.
If you are threatened with an eviction, we can help ensure that your landlord follows the proper process and meets the requirements for eviction. It may be possible to extend the time constraints or even fight the validity of the eviction.
If your landlord has not provided you with a safe and habitable residence, ensured that you have quiet enjoyment of the property or made reasonable repairs, there are processes you can follow to correct these deficiencies. We will help you get the remedy you need.
We also represent tenants in security deposit disputes.
Our office also handles Ejectment and Wrongful Detainer matters. Please contact our office to determine which route is the appropriate one to take.
