Landlord Tenant Law, Condominium Association Representation & Real Estate
Landlord Tenant Law
Our law firm represents residential and commercial landlords and tenants. We prepare leases, defend and prosecute eviction cases, deal with disputes over leases and also help both landlords and tenants in the State and Bankruptcy Courts.
In the area of residential leases, we recommend the simplest, best and least expensive approach. We have brought eviction actions for residential landlords to cause tenants to be removed for many reasons, including non-payment of rent, sale of the property, damage to the premises, being disorderly, and many other issues. We also defend these same types of cases for tenants because our experience gives us the ability to understand the issues from both sides.
Condominium Association Representation
We represent condominium associations and condominium owners in and out of Bankruptcy Court. We are privileged to represent condominium associations over periods of many years. Due to the long-term nature of this attorney-client relationship, we can offer special rates for your association.
We review and enforce by-laws, collect unpaid condominium fees, and handle disputes over repairs and maintenance, as well as internal association disputes. We seek solutions that are both cost-effective and fair, knowing that association members and governing boards have a common interest in keeping their legal expenses down to a minimum.
For attorneys who represent associations but are not familiar with the bankruptcy issues surrounding condominium association membership, we can work with regular association counsel to protect the interests of the association when the unit owner or homeowner files a bankruptcy. Not all dues and maintenance fees are lost after a bankruptcy filing.
We litigate cases involving real estate disputes, such as disputes over contracts. While we do not handle residential real estate closings, we are pleased to refer this work to other attorneys. We will assist our clients in commercial real estate sales, purchases and refinancing.
No attorney is knowledgeable in every area of the law. We believe that the clients who seek our advice should have the best available counsel, with the most experience in an area where we do not have sufficient experience. For these reasons, we maintain a referral network of attorneys with special skills in construction litigation, representing both general and sub-contractors. We work with counsel who frequently litigate the particular issues related to the New Jersey Construction Lien Law.
If you have questions in any of these areas, we can represent you or assist you in selecting other qualified counsel.
