Prevent Problems by Working with a Landlord Lawyer

Working with a lawyer ahead of time to help you create a solid lease agreement can be the first step in protecting yourself in potential legal battles with tenants you might have. It is crucial that you have a lease agreement in place that follows your state/local laws, is fair, and protects you and your investment property.

You will never enter a lease agreement thinking that eventually you could be in court with your tenant, but should that be the case, your lease agreement will be the center of your legal case. Formulating a well crafted lease agreement with a lawyer could be beneficial to you should you ever have to file against your tenant for excessive property damage, if you have to evict them, or if they violated their tenant lease agreement in any way.

At the Law Office of John Karl Schwartz Jr., we can help prepare a solid lease agreement that will protect you and your investment before you are faced with potential legal conflicts with a tenant.
