When landlords are faced with tenants who refuse to pay or otherwise violate the terms of their contracts, it’s critical to work with a real estate attorney who understands landlord and tenant litigation law. Landlords face challenges on a daily basis. Many times, those obstacles involve tenants who refuse to pay their rent or become a nuisance on the property. Our job is to aggressively represent landlords and property owners in court. The entire arena of Florida property law, including landlord-tenant law, can be confusing and complex. The prospect of sifting through statutes to create a solid legal defense can be overwhelming to many landlords.

Do the attorneys at Perez Mayoral, P.A. draft residential and commercial leases?
We absolutely do. The first defense against a problem tenant is a well-drafted lease with precise terms a court can easily apply to the facts of a dispute. Our skilled attorneys draft rental leases in clear language so there can be no misunderstanding about a tenant’s duties under the lease. When disputes arise, we are often able to resolve problems with a tenant’s performance by drafting letters clarifying the tenant’s obligations. When conflicts escalate, we provide advice on how to proceed without incurring legal liability.
