Landlord/ Tenant

Landlord and tenant attorney

Relationships between landlords and tenants are highly regulated by both state laws and contracts known as lease agreements and can be complex. Whether you have a current rental issue, need a lease reviewed, or are a landlord seeking to evict a tenant, a landlord and tenant lawyer is essential.


A landlord must have legal cause to evict a tenant. Some of the more common reasons are:

  • Unpaid rent;
  • Improper use of the premises;
  • Health and safety violations;
  • Breach of the lease agreement; and
  • A tenant who will not leave after expiration of the lease.
