Aggressively Protecting The Rights Of Landlords In Landlord-Tenant Law Matters
Landlords face a range of issues when it comes to tenants. These matters are often legal in nature and require the assistance of a skilled and savvy landlord rights attorney. At Nolan Law, LLC, our founding attorney Joshua Nolan has a wealth of real estate experience and in-depth insight into landlord-tenant law in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan, where we serve clients from our Toledo office.
Common Legal Issues We Handle For Landlords
- Lease violations: There are many terms and guidelines stated in a lease agreement, for good reason. Many of these stipulations are to protect the landlord and his or her property. When a tenant has violated a lease, it can be due to a wide range of reasons from keeping an animal in the home when not allowed to noise complaints. We help landlords deal with lease violations, drafting a notice to quit or other notifications that tenants need to be provided for the landlord to be in compliance with the lease as well.
- Evictions and unlawful detainers: One of the main issues landlords face is tenants not paying rent, eventually resulting in an eviction. There are numerous steps that need to be followed in order for the eviction to be legal and for the tenant to have the notifications they need before the actual eviction takes place. We can assist with providing notice to the tenants, drafting a complaint and submitting it to the court, representing the landlord at any subsequent hearings and any additional eviction-related issues.
Defending Landlords Against Tenant Allegations
In many situations, tenants may believe that they have rights in situations where they do not understand all of the facets of the law. As a result, a tenant may make accusations or bring a legal action against a landlord. Our firm takes a strong stand in these cases, actively investigating all of the allegations, collecting evidence and articulating our defense of the landlord’s position in or out of court. Whenever possible, we work to show that the landlord upheld his or her obligations and that the fault in the matter actually lies with the tenant.
