Landlord / Tenant

CWCR&H represents Landlords throughout the various stages of legal issues that arise under Landlord and Tenant law. This representation includes:

  • drafting and reviewing leases and land contracts;
  • litigation of Landlord/Tenant disputes; and
  • the process of filing a Forcible Entry and Detainer (“FED”) commonly known as an eviction and/or a money judgment action.

If you are a Landlord and feel you need to start an eviction process or take collection action on unpaid rent or the cost of repairing damage to the property, you should consult with an attorney who will explain how to take action in full compliance with the law.

Landlord/Tenant Law and the eviction process can often be a confusing and technical legal process. A minor misstep can cause your case to be dismissed causing you to start the process all over again. If you are unable to navigate this process on your own or simply do not have the time to manage it, call one of our experienced attorneys to assist you, start to finish.
