As a landlord, you are the one who is legally and financially responsible for your property, especially if you still have a mortgage on the building. If your tenant is late on rent, it can result in fees and serious consequences for you personally. If the tenant breaches other provisions of the lease not related to the rent, it could cost you thousands of dollars. That’s why you perform scrupulous background and credit checks, in the hopes that the tenant will consistently pay rent on time, take excellent care of the property, and fully adhere to all provisions of the lease.

If you’ve taken every precaution and have done everything within your power to enforce a rental agreement, and you still need legal assistance, we can help you make an informed decision about what to do next. The Perry Phillips law firm is dedicated to providing each client a cost-effective and satisfactory legal resolution to landlord-tenant issues. We can sit down with you and go over the specifics of your disagreement, and advise you of your options, including a suit for rent and/or eviction.
