Commercial & Residential Landlord/Tenant Attorney

Commercial & Residential Tenants

We are one of few real estate law firms that represent commercial and residential tenants in the Tampa bay area, as well as landlords. Although most of our clients' problems have to do with maintenance (or lack thereof), we have seen every kind of landlord/tenant dispute you can imagine. 

For tenants, the most common calls and inquiries we receive every day are either for maintenance issues or unreturned deposits. For tenants, we handle every type of case imaginable:

- Maintenance Disputes

- Deposit Disputes

- Code Enforcement Issues & Disputes

- Association Harassment & Disputes

- Landlord Harassment & Disputes

- Unreasonable landlord Disputes

- Lease Agreement Review & Analysis

- Claims of non-compliance by landlord

- Evictions

- Illegal Detainers

- Roommate disputes

Non-refunded deposits and code violations result in very common disputes in landlord/tenant law in Florida. Did your landlord keep your deposit for repairs for which you are not obligated to pay? You are not obligated to pay your landlord for nominal wear and tear to the rental property. Did your landlord give you the proper notice required under Florida law regarding your security deposit? 

Are you having trouble getting your landlord to make necessary repairs? Do you fear retaliation for calling code enforcement against your landlord? We have other ways of getting your landlord to uphold their end of the bargain.

Florida Law provides that court costs and attorney fees be paid to the prevailing party in several instances. If you have a dispute with your landlord you should seek advice from a landlord/tenant attorney to learn what your legal rights are. 

 If you have a dispute with your landlord please call our office to obtain a quote from a Landlord/Tenant Attorney and learn what your legal rights are.

Commercial & Residential Landlords

Whether you are a business or an individual, if you are operating as a landlord, it is imperative that you have a working relationship with an attorney.  Florida Law is very complex when it comes to Landlord/Tenant issues

Landlords must follow strict laws when it comes to security deposits, official notices and legal actions, including evictions. A savvy landlord should always have a Landlord/Tenant attorney on retainer, so that if any issues arise, they can be dealt with promptly.

If you are a landlord, you should seek legal advice about your lease, potential liabilities and courses of action for problematic tenants as soon as they arise. Florida law provides for attorney's fees and court costs to the prevailing party in most landlord/tenant actions, so you have a financial incentive to seek legal representation. There are four main reasons why landlords consult with a Landlord/Tenant Attorney: 

- Drafting of New Lease Agreements  

- Tenant Non-compliance Notices and Evictions

- Delinquent Rent and Evictions

- Code Enforcement
