Landlord/Tenant

AriasBosinger understands the challenges landlords face and aggressively represents them while providing practical and cost-effective advice. We represent individual owners, apartment communities and management companies in residential and commercial evictions, post-eviction claims for money owed, and proper handling and use of security deposits. Our attorneys assist in negotiating for possession of rental units through voluntary buy-outs, and we represent and vigorously defend landlords in wrongful eviction and premises liability lawsuits. We also represent defendants in wrongful eviction lawsuits.

Careful Analysis and Attention to Detail

Representing landlords in landlord-tenant disputes requires detailed and proactive planning and strict attention to detail, particularly in drafting legal notices in compliance with all applicable statutory and procedural requirements. That means immediately identifying the various issues and facts. Even cases wherein new property owners seek to owner-occupy the dwelling can be extraordinarily difficult. We manage litigation in an efficient and cost-effective manner without taking shortcuts. We carefully draft the initiating notice to terminate tenancy because even a minor mistake can cause lengthy delays or have your case thrown out of court. A claim of wrongful eviction based on landlord conduct can result in costly litigation.

Clear, Concise and Knowledgeable Advice

Landlord-tenant litigation is procedurally intensive and designed to be completed very quickly. Deadlines for filing pleadings, motion practice, and discovery are particularly short. Missteps can be costly and force litigants to start the process over again. Certain categories of residential tenants may be protected from eviction except in cases of non-payment or breach of contract. Landlords are not advised to represent themselves or use an attorney without substantial experience in this area of practice. They need reliable and accurate legal advice about how to approach contentious interactions with tenants. That is what you will find with AriasBosinger.

Flat Fees

We offer flat fees for certain types of eviction lawsuits, including those involving the nonpayment of rent. We give effective and practical advice in order to resolve the matter as quickly as possible so the rental unit is productive again.

Representation of Tenants

AriasBosinger also represents tenants whose landlords have failed to follow the proper process or meet the requirements for eviction, fail to maintain the premises, or are otherwise in violation of the lease or Florida statutes.
