Landlord/Tenant Law

Disputes between residential landlords and tenants are common, and often lead to the necessity of legal representation. Our experienced attorneys negotiate all matters of landlord/tenant law and, if the need arises, will aggressively litigate. Of course, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. If you are a landlord, we can also help you draft rules and regulations for your property that will help protect you from future legal problems.

We represent landlords, tenants and property owners on these matters:

  • Evictions
  • Holdovers and nonpayment proceedings
  • Damage to property disputes
  • Security deposit disputes
  • Contract actions between former tenants or landlords
  • Allegations of wrongful evictions
  • Injunctive and declaratory judgment actions
  • Collections from nonpaying tenants
  • Self-help evictions
  • Breach of warranty of habitability
  • Landlord liability
  • Appeals
  • Draft rental leases
