Experience That Makes the Difference

One of the most common causes of landlord-tenant disputes is one party breaking one or more terms of the rental agreement or lease. Clearly defined rental terms can prevent many disputes. However, when the terms of the lease or rental agreement are broken due to non-payment of rent or chronically late payments what may seem like a small dispute can quickly escalate into a large legal battle. With an eye toward keeping the dispute out of court, she can help you respond to a crisis in a timely and cost-effective way with the goal of resolving the dispute.

If you are facing an eviction or want to know on what grounds you can evict a tenant, attorney Mastandrea can help you navigate your legal challenges and ensure you follow the rules and protect your rights. There are certain conditions in which a tenant may withhold rent; however, he or she must follow certain guidelines and procedures for doing so. Both parties have general expectations and obligations outside the actual rental agreement, however, understanding what those are and under what circumstances they need to be adhered to can be difficult to ascertain.
