Operating as usual
Did you know that it has been illegal for landlords to discriminate against families for over 20 years? Excluding families because you prefer a more mature or quiet environment can lead you to a lawsuit.
While late fees can be highly effective in getting tenants to pay their rent on time, it's important that you stay within your legal limits. By setting fees that bear little resemblance to actual damages and therefore aren't justifiable, you can end up in legal trouble.
Did you know that when a tenant breaks a lease without a legally protected reason, the landlord may sue the tenant for damages? However, the landlord is required to help mitigate damages by attempting to re-rent the unit.
It's important to remember that the process for evicting tenants from commercial property can be a little different from residential tenants. Let's talk about the process relevant to your particular property.
Are you concerned that you've inadvertently done something to make your tenants feel they could get away without paying their rent? Let's discuss the situation and how eviction could fit into it.
We know the stress eviction can give you. Let us take away your worry, we can give the tenant the eviction notice and we can also make sure you win your eviction case. Don't do this alone; our law office can help.
Did you know that just because a tenant breaks the lease doesn't necessarily mean that you are legally entitled to keep the security deposit? As the landlord, you are required to take reasonably prompt steps to re-rent the unit and credit any new rent toward the tenant's obligation for the rest of the lease.
Tenants or guests may sue if they think your failure to maintain a rental property caused damage to their property. Let's say a roof leak soaks a tenant's furniture, they could come after you for damages. Small-claims court may not need an attorney, but practicing with one for an hour or so is a good idea.
As a landlord, your intellectual property rights stand for your good reputation.

Since eviction involves people's homes, the bar is set very high for landlords. What may seem an obvious case of eviction won't always be so easy to win. You should consult with an attorney specializing in landlord law before any legal action.
As a landlord, having your tenants sign a proper lease is essentially for legal purposes. If you use a lease that short cuts tenants' rights in any way, you can potentially find yourself at the losing end of a lawsuit because of an unenforceable lease clause.

Landlords face going to court for any number of reasons beyond evictions, personal injury, and discrimination lawsuits. Tenants can sue for their security deposit back if they feel you wrongfully withheld it. You might be bringing a civil action against a contractor for poor work. Any court time needs legal counsel, and we can help you.
