Our firm represents businesses and commercial landlords involved in disputes arising from breach of lease and defaults. With the real estate market flourishing, real estate investment properties are increasing. Municipalities are creating new rent ordinances and changing existing laws. Our firm can assist with dispute resolution before it escalates, or provide representation if a lawsuit was filed. We also assist landlords and business tenants with lease reviews, drafting and negotiation.
Landlords (commercial or residential)
Landlords, commercial or residential, must have lease agreements carefully drafted to meet business purposes as well as compliance with various laws. On a high level, the lease must comply with contracts law to create a valid and enforceable agreement. On a mid level, it must not violate California landlord-tenant laws. On the lowest level, it must comply with local ordinances. Our firm assists landlords, commercial or residential, with lease drafting and negotiation.
If a landlord is looking to bring an unlawful detainer action for eviction; or, if seeking monetary damages for breach of lease or default, our firm can assist with representation in the litigation.
Businesses generally require a place to operate business. Often that will require leasing a space. A business should have the lease thoroughly reviewed and negotiated to meet its needs. If not, it may result in a costly dispute at a later date. Our firm can assist businesses seeking to lease a new space or when planning to amend/modify terms to an existing space.
If litigation is forthcoming or started, our firm can defend a business in litigation with its landlord; or, bring a suit when there is a default or breach by the landlord.
