Are you facing a legal dispute regarding your commercial or residential lease? When you’re renting a property, you can often feel like you don’t have a voice of your own, or someone looking out for you to avoid unfair practices. That’s where we come in. Reach out to us for legal help for issues such as…
Are you being evicted? Perhaps wrongfully so? Don’t hesitate to reach out and find out what your options are. There is a legal eviction process that a landlord must carry out—but too often, we see examples of unlawful attempts to keep a tenant out of the property in question. These can include locking you out or removing your possessions from the home. Don’t feel like you have to settle for this kind of behavior, especially if you feel that you are in the right. Give us a call and we can help you determine possible courses of action to fight the eviction, receive compensation or just get back on your feet.
Failure to meet landlord obligations
Based on your lease agreement, there are certain obligations a landlord must take on. If they’re not completing their end of the deal, and your property or wellbeing is suffering because of it, you might have a case worth pursuing.
While it’s an unfortunate part of life, discrimination can and does happen. When it happens in a rental situation, you as a tenant may feel personally wronged or unsafe in your own home. You don’t have to brush off possible acts of discrimination from your landlord—reach out to your designated real estate attorney to see what your next move is.
Property damage can have a negative impact on your home life or, if you’re renting a commercial property, your business. While some damage is inevitable (due to storms and other natural events or accidents), some may be the result of poor or careless work by your landlord. Other damage may have already existed in your rental without you ever knowing about it, posing a risk to you, your family or your business. If you believe that serious damage was 1) caused by your landlord or 2) undisclosed before you moved in, you may want to consult with your lawyer to see what can be done about it to keep your rental safe and in order.
If your landlord has been negligent about your rental property, it can lead to dangers within the property and risks for business owners welcoming in customers. For renters of residential properties, the effects of a landlord’s negligence can be dangerous for families and young children. This is why negligence cases are so serious, and often warrant legal action.
Consulting with a real estate attorney doesn’t mean you’re going to court, have to pay expensive fees, or will have to leave your rental property. These are possible outcomes, but not the only ones. Talk with us to simply learn what your options are and how you may have been wronged in the lease process.
