For Tenants

The best way to avoid disputes with your landlord is to be aware of your rights as a tenant before signing a lease agreement. That way, you'll be informed if he or she does something to violate your terms or rights. We help clients with a wide variety of tenant landlord issues, including, but not limited:

  • Entering your unit without permission
  • Illegally increasing or changing your rental rate
  • Failing to address maintenance or pest problems
  • Failing to disclose mandatory matters, such as the presence of lead paint or asbestos
  • Failing to provide adequate notice of changes or utilities bills


If your landlord has engaged in any of these or similar actions, contact our firm today. We will draft a letter to your landlord to attempt to resolve the situation and go to court if need be.
