Fort Lauderdale Real Estate Attorney for Landlords

Hollywood, FL real estate lawyer for evictions and litigation

Broward County Lawyer Representing Landlords in Real Estate Litigation and Evictions

Owning property and renting or leasing it to residential or commercial tenants can be a profitable business enterprise. However, landlords will want to take steps to protect their rights and their financial interests and resolve legal issues as quickly and effectively as possible. As a landlord, when you need to create a commercial lease, evict tenants, or resolve legal disputes, you will need an experienced real estate attorney on your side.

The Elliot Legal Group, P.A. provides legal help and representation to landlords, and we can assist with a wide variety of commercial and residential real estate matters. Attorney Gavin Elliot, our principal, has nearly 20 years of legal experience, and he understands the laws surrounding leases, evictions, and other matters that affect landlords. He can provide the representation you need to ensure that you will be able to continue generating income from the property you own.

Legal Services for Landlords

As a landlord who owns and manages residential or commercial rental properties, you will need to address a variety of business law matters, including business formation and obtaining financing for construction or improvements to your property. However, you will also need to address a range of legal issues specific to your business.

We can help you draft leases that will protect your rights as a property owner and meet your needs. We can ensure that residential leases clearly define terms such as the amount of security deposits, late fees, rules for pets, when the landlord can enter the property, and responsibility for maintenance and repairs. For commercial leases, we can help address issues such as what types of improvements can be made to the property, who will be responsible for paying utilities and property taxes, build-outs, subleasing, and exclusivity rights.

If rent has not been paid, or the terms of a lease have been violated, we can help you determine your options for evicting the tenant. We can prepare and serve three-day notices to pay rent or quit, seven-day notices to cure, or seven-day unconditional quit notices. Following the service of these notices, we can work with you to pursue an eviction lawsuit against the tenant and ensure the proper procedures are followed when removing the tenant from the property and that you collect on any payments due.

We can help resolve other types of disputes that may arise with tenants, including those involving claims of discrimination, destruction of property, alleged health hazards, violations of the terms of the lease, illegal activities on the property, or compliance with government regulations such as the Americans with Disabilities Act. We will work with you to determine the best ways to handle these disputes, including using mediation or arbitration to reach a settlement. If an agreement or settlement with the tenant cannot be reached, we will provide representation in real estate litigation.
