Landlord – Tenant Relationships

Residential and commercial rental properties are typically win-win situations for both parties, providing affordable accommodations for the tenant and regular income for the landlord.  If one or both parties fail to meet the obligations of the agreement, the situation can quickly deteriorate.  Our lawyers are knowledgeable in the rights and duties of these relationships.

Lease

We have helped numerous landlords and tenants in leasing transactions, including drafting, negotiating, and interpretation.

Don’t be fooled by standard form contracts.

Notify and warn

Do you need to notify your landlord of a maintenance issue or deficiency in the property that has gone unresolved for too long?  Is your tenant violating conditions of the lease?  Is your landlord illegally discriminating based on a protected classification?

Our attorneys will formally inform opposing parties of the conflict and propose a legal resolution.

Termination of Tenancy and Eviction

We regularly represent landlords seeking monetary and possessory judgments against tenants who fail to comply with the lease terms.  We pride ourselves on our discretion and respectful interactions with opposing parties, many of whom are typically unrepresented.
