Rental agreements between landlords and tenants can result in misunderstandings, hard feelings and law suits. At Press, Dozier & Hamelburg, our real estate attorneys understand the complexities that can arise in leasing and other landlord and tenant matters. Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, we will put your interests and objectives first.
In our real estate practice, we:
We help residential landlords in a wide range of legal issues including rent defaults, damages to the premises and the retention of security deposits. We make sure that residential landlords are in compliance with the laws that provide protections to tenants in residential leases, so that our landlord clients’ rights are protected as well.
We help commercial landlords draft and negotiate leases that clearly and fairly protect their rights. When disputes arise between a commercial landlord and its tenant, we move quickly to write late payment notices and pursue negotiated settlements or judicial evictions.
We also represent tenants in both residential and commercial leases. We review and negotiate leases, defend against evictions and other legal actions, and handle disputes involving the condition of the premises (including mold issues). Our lawyers have the talent and resources to provide our clients with sound advice and aggressive representation for their commercial and residential needs.
