Practical Advice In Landlord-Tenant Disputes
Due to recent economic challenges, there are extensive legal protections for tenants who have failed to pay rent or have violated other landlord-tenant agreements. Landlords find themselves in a difficult situation trying to collect rent or evict tenants who have refused to pay rent or vacate the premises. Disputes between landlords and tenants can quickly become heated, whether due to the tenant’s refusal to pay rent, consistent violations of the lease or other causes. As a landlord, you might feel like your hands are tied and you are powerless to do anything about your tenants. But you have rights.
At Lange, Quill & Powers, PLC, our firm has assisted landlords throughout northern Kentucky for over 40 years. We strive to not only resolve your dispute but also find a solution that potentially prevents similar future disputes. We’re experienced real estate litigators, and you can trust in our ability to protect your rights and business interests.
Representing Landlords Amid A Wide Array Of Issues
Whether you own a home or a large apartment complex, our attorneys provide the knowledgeable outlook you need. We can assist with many issues, including:
- Nonpayment of rent
- Security deposits
- Clashes over maintenance and repairs
- Direct violations of the lease
The process to evict a tenant is not as straightforward as demanding them to leave immediately. We can advise on the proper procedure, including giving sufficient notice, providing sound reasoning behind the eviction and more.
Providing Both Proactive And Reactive Legal Strategies
We also assist in drafting leases between landlords and tenants. A sound lease can reduce the opportunities for vague, unclear language that might lead to a dispute. However, sometimes even the strongest of leases cannot prevent conflict. When you need legal representation, we aggressively enforce your rights as a landlord.
Discuss Your Dispute With A Lawyer
