Landlord and Tenant Law

While renting can often be an ideal situation for both landlords and tenants, it can also -- as you know -- become a dreadful ordeal.

If you’re a landlord, you may find your tenants are:

  • Not paying their rent
  • Not caring for the property properly
  • Refusing to move out when they should


If you’re a tenant, you may find your landlord is:
  • Failing to do essential repairs
  • Entering your property without first asking
  • Refusing to refund your security deposit


Entering into a residential or commercial rental agreement should be taken seriously, as you stand to lose a lot if something goes wrong. Having a written rental agreement, or lease, is critical, as it can clearly define the terms of the agreement and provide a legal basis for enforcing the terms between the landlord and the tenant in the future, if necessary. Renting commercial space is an especially big responsibility, as the success or failure of your business may ride on certain terms of the lease.

There are many ever-changing laws that govern landlord-tenant relationships, and it’s difficult to stay on top of them. You need someone who is well-versed in this area to:
  • Negotiate, review and prepare legally accurate residential and commercial leases
  • Represent landlords or tenants in eviction proceedings
