Landlord and Tenant Matters
Whether you are a landlord seeking to evict a tenant that refuses to pay you your rent or a tenant whose landlord refuses to fix your dwelling and provide you with the amenities they promised, we can help. We have represented both landlords and tenants and have successfully litigated claims for both sides. We know the ins and outs of Michigan landlord-tenant law and will use this knowledge and experience for your benefit. Proper notice is very important. Whether you are a tenant or a landlord, when you sign a lease, you sign a contract. You are contractually obligated to perform certain duties and responsibilities. Both parties are also granted certain rights and protections under the lease.
If you are involved in residential property, you should know and understand your rights as a landlord or as a tenant under the applicable law. We can either review an existing or proposed lease, or prepare a new lease for you. If you are thinking of starting a residential rental business, we can draft the appropriate forms for you to use.
Our attorneys represent both landlords and tenants in eviction cases. If you are a landlord that needs to evict a tenant, we can assist you with filing the proper documents. If you are a tenant that has been service with a Notice to Quit or a Complaint for Eviction, we can help you protect your rights.
Our attorneys are experienced at drafting leases and rental agreements. If you are a landlord, we can ensure that your lease contains all of the necessary language to protect your interest in your property. If you are a tenant, we will review the lease before you sign it and make sure that your interests are protected.
If you are a landlord seeking reimbursement from tenants for damage that occurred to your property, our attorneys can help. If a tenant is currently living at your property, and is causing damage, we can help you evict him. If the damage was discovered after the tenant moved out, we can help you seek compensation for your damages.
