The relationship between landlord and tenant can be complicated and contentious. And disputes can easily arise between even responsible and well-meaning lessors and lessees. When this occurs, it takes an experienced lawyer to protect your rights. Whether you are a landlord or a renter and whether your dispute involves commercial or residential rental property, a real estate attorney in Tampa from Westchase Law, P.A. can provide counsel and representation in a variety of situations.
Property leases are often complex and can give rise to many issues. Lease agreements can be complicated, and commercial lease agreements especially must contain specific terms tailor-made to address the type of business the lessee plans to conduct on the premises. These can include insurance obligations, status of fixtures, duties of repair, rights to alter the premises, non-compete clauses, and methods for computing rent. Lessors must be careful to protect the value of their properties and lessees must negotiate terms that allow them to efficiently do business.
The complexities of these agreements make disputes common. And failing to honor the terms can have consequences for both parties. Landlords who fail to maintain their properties may face a withholding of rent. Tenants who fail to honor their obligations may face eviction. In either case, our attorneys can advise of your rights and obligations and work with the other party to resolve any issues. Should an amicable resolution prove impossible, our attorneys have the skills and experience needed to efficiently resolve your issues in the appropriate court.
Eviction can be a complicated process and there are many laws that protect tenants and prevent the lessor from resorting to self-help.
