Residential Lease Agreements
When it comes to renting your property, a lease agreement is vital in making sure all of your interests are covered. This document minimizes the likelihood that any misunderstandings should arise between yourself and prospective tenants. Our office will happily advise Landlords of their rights through drafting terms of your lease agreement, rights of holding a security deposit, rights of increasing rent, rights of eviction, and rights to collect rents due. We also advise Tenants of their rights against wrongful eviction, rights against retaliation, habitability issues, and withholding of rent. The Juzmeski Law Firm will address each of your concerns and specific needs.
If an issue should pop up between tenant and landlord, our office can also assist in eviction proceedings. One of the most common grounds for eviction is failure to pay rent. Under these circumstances, the tenant has the right to make payment of all rent due in full by the end of the business day at date of trial dismissing the matter.
