Landlord Tenant

practice_landlord

Housing is one of the necessities of life and is typically the largest expense in most peoples’ lives. Disputes between landlords and tenants can easily become contested.  Disagreements over the terms of a lease and the rights and responsibilities of both landlord and tenant can often be resolved quickly and amicably.

However, they sometimes require the intervention of a landlord tenant attorney.  The process of eviction is not as simple as the landlord deciding to terminate the lease and throw the tenant out of the premises. Likewise, when landlords and tenants become involved in legal disputes, many people have a tendency to side with the “little guy” or the “underdog.”  The results is that the rights of the landlord may often be unduly trampled, leaving him or her deprived of fair payment or making it difficult to turn a profit. We help our landlord clients resolve their issues quickly and effectively and also can assist with non-payment evictions as well as holdover cases and can represent either the landlord or the tenant.   As a either a tenant or a landlord.  Your rights include those that are described in the language of your lease, as well as those provided for by City and State Law.

An attorney from our firm can help you understand your rights and work to help you to resolve the issues you may have.

Medical insurance exists for the purpose of providing financial support for preventive medical care in the case of illness or injury.
