The firm assists landlords with both commercial and residential tenant evictions. Evictions are most often needed because the tenant has failed to pay rent, are holdover tenants (tenants who fail to move out even though their lease has expired) or have engaged in misconduct. Evictions are generally handled on a flat fee basis.
Evictions are handled for a flat fee, plus costs.
The fee includes the following legal services:
In the event that the tenant files a counterclaim or contests the eviction and deposits rents to the court registry additional fees will be required, generally on an hourly basis. The fee agreement will detail the fees to be charged in the event the eviction becomes contested.
