Why Is a Lawyer Necessary?
Some landlord/tenant matters can be resolved without a lawyer, but talking with an attorney before you make major decisions is always your best bet.
If you are a landlord:
You have invested a considerable sum of money in purchasing your real estate property. When your tenant fails to pay timely rent, neglects the premises or causes damage, you must expend additional funds to meet mortgage, tax and repair damage. Hiring a lawyer can help minimize the amount you spend to remedy the situation. An attorney can also assist in preparing leases for residential and commercial properties to ensure your interests are protected from the beginning.
If you are a tenant:
You have invested time, effort and money moving into your rental property. You have made your accommodations attractive, comfortable and suited to meet your needs. When there is a problem at the property--whether it is structural, involving the plumbing, electrical or other essential features--and your landlord fails to correct it, you need to take action to make sure your rights are protected. An attorney can help you protect your rights and your family.
