At some point or another, a landlord will need to seek the advice of an attorney who specializes in landlord-tenant law. If you are a landlord experiencing trouble with your tenant, put us to work for you.
This office offers a broad range of legal services. Our main area of practice is landlord – tenant law and real estate transactions. Specifically, we guide landlords through the landscape of California landlord – tenant laws, thought to be the most progressive in the nation. Knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate transactions and landlord – tenant law, we specialize in the representation of landlords.
When you call our office you will not have to worry about being passed along to a paralegal. You will be able to speak directly to an attorney. Below is a summary of services available:
II. Post-Foreclosure Evictions
This office has handled thousands of post-foreclosure evictions. Our firm was on the front lines during the housing bust and during a time where most Judges did not understand the technicalities and mechanics of post-foreclosure law. Our firm is extremely well versed in State and Federal Law (Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act) as well and how they relate to Rent Controlled jurisdictions (Oakland, San Francisco, Los Angeles County, etc…). We have become teaching instructors and seminar speakers on post-foreclosure matters and evictions.
As California becomes a more tenant friendly jurisdiction, it has become increasingly difficult for landlords to retain control over tenants. With rent control becoming more pervasive in the various jurisdictions, it is imperative for landlords to associate with knowledgeable attorneys to avoid unnecessary liability exposure. The most common need of landlords is a quick and efficient eviction. Below is a list of eviction services we provide (fee schedule attached.)
IV. Legal Consultation for on-site Managers
As the laws change, it is difficult for on-site managers to know what course of action to take in a specific situation to minimize exposure to liability. This office has an attorney available to respond to questions managers have. There is no charge for such advice unless we are required to draft letters or otherwise respond in writing. Below are situations commonly encountered by on-site managers:
* It is impossible to outline all potential situations, this office is able to provide advice or research if necessary *
V. Problem tenants
As managers deal with aggressive tenants who refuse to abide by community policies, it becomes necessary to “remind” tenants of their obligations as outlined in the lease and community policies. Should a tenant fail to heed the warnings of management, we can send letters and/or serve notices informing the tenants of impending legal action if the tenants choose to ignore their obligations. Below are some examples of letters and notices:
* Once again this list is not exhaustive. We will do what ever is necessary to legally obtain results management desires *
VI. Document Analysis:
Should a question arise regarding leases or community policies, we will review the document and give a verbal opinion regarding the legal effect of the language contained therein. If a written opinion is required, a fee will be charged (see attached fee schedule). Some common questions are listed below:
