With a proper lease and excellent communication, the relationship between a landlord and tenant can be financially beneficial and stress-free. But when that relationship deteriorates and disputes arise sometimes it’s necessary to seek out the services of an experienced attorney.
LANDLORD TENANT DISPUTES
Prior to Contacting an Attorney
1. Before it comes to that, take a careful look at any documents that govern the lease. These documents will contain rights, as well as responsibilities that each side needs to meet.
2. Make sure to conduct as much correspondence as possible in writing. That way your efforts and the other party’s responses can be reviewed at a later date if legal counsel is necessitated.
3. Remember that lawyers and court time should be reserved as the option of last-resort if communication has broken down to a point that a mutual agreement can’t be reached.
Working with an Attorney
1. Talk to us about whether your case should be billed hourly or if a flat fee agreement makes sense.
2. Gather all lease documents, copies of written correspondence, certified mail receipts and any relevant photos.
3. Ask us how long it might take to resolve this dispute and what are the potential outcomes, both positive and negative.
