Experienced Guidance In Real Estate Law

Many legal difficulties can arise in matters related to ownership and possession of real estate, and they are not something you should try to overcome on your own. You can avoid making that mistake by seeking the help of an experienced real estate attorney.

At Graham Legal, P.A., we have helped the Miami and South Florida community settle their real estate needs for more than 40 years. Part of what has made us so successful over these decades is our commitment to our clients and understanding their unique situations. Once we identify their needs, we begin crafting a custom-tailored strategy to protect their best interests.

Providing A Full Spectrum Of Real Estate Law Services

Real estate law issues are not just limited to the buying and selling of property. There are many different aspects of real estate law that we represent our clients through, from contract disputes to evictions.

Our attorneys can assist you with a wide range of real estate law concerns, including:

  • Condominium and homeowners association disputes
  • Evictions
  • Landlord-tenant disputes
  • Real property disputes
  • Easements
  • Contracts

While settling disputes through negotiation is commonly preferred, we are more than prepared to litigate on your behalf and fight for your best interests in a court of law. You can rely on us to guide you through your problems in a swift and efficient manner.

Why Would A Tenant Need An Attorney?

There is a multitude of disputes and situations that may arise for a landlord or tenant that may require litigation or negotiation. Each party has its own set of protections and rights. At the most basic level, tenants should feel comfortable and safe in the property they are renting.

If these basic expectations aren’t being met, then it is wise to hire an attorney to remediate the problem as soon as possible. Dealing with either of these situations feels overwhelming. Additionally, there is a relationship that is developed between the landlord and tenant, thus, if one of the parties attempts to collect money directly from the other person, they may let feelings of anger dictate the process instead of following the law.

Either party may be facing some sort of difficulty, but each person still deserves what is contractually owed to them, whether it is the monthly rent payment, addressing potential hazards on the property, or returning the deposit upon moving out.

What Claims Are Covered Under Landlord-Tenant Disputes?

Landlord-tenant disputes can include a wide range of concerns, including:

  • Violation of lease provisions
  • Disruptive behavior on the property
  • Eviction proceedings
  • Failure to pay rent
  • Property damage
  • Security deposits
  • Disposal of abandoned personal property
  • Material noncompliance
  • Unlawful discriminatory rent increase

There isn’t any need to face landlord-tenant disputes on your own. The attorneys at Graham Legal can help overcome any of these issues and many others that may not have been listed, through litigation or negotiation.

Defending Your Tenant Rights Against Your Landlord

Settling a dispute with another party is not always a serious matter, but if you are facing a legal issue with your landlord, it can be a matter of keeping your home or not. When your well-being is at stake, it only makes sense to arm yourself with a committed lawyer.

There is not a lot of common knowledge about what kind of disputes tenants can find themselves in with their landlords or how to resolve them to your benefit. Here are some of the most common disputes tenants may find themselves in:

  • Contract disagreements
  • Eviction
  • Eviction without cause
  • Discrimination
  • Failure to repair
  • Failing to pay rent

Eviction concerns may be the most common reason that a tenant seeks an attorney. If a tenant withholds their rent for good reason, like because of a nonfunctioning service in their home, like heat or water, they may have a good defense in not paying. We take the time to sit down with you and truly understand your unique situation. Once we recognize your needs, we craft a strategy for both litigation and negotiation to help protect your rights in your landlord-tenant dispute.

At Graham Legal, P.A., we have helped Florida tenants fight to protect themselves in landlord-tenant disputes for more than 40 years. In the decades we have been representing clients, we have developed a long history of fiercely litigating on our clients’ behalf to help secure the most favorable outcome in their disputes.

Do Not Put Your Housing Situation At Risk

As a tenant, you may not be aware of the disadvantages you could have in your dispute. Experienced landlords may be knowledgeable about their rights in your conflict, and they may also have their own attorney to represent them.
