Drafting Solid Leases for Property Owners

Both landlords and tenants can avoid potential problems by having a well-drafted contract that enumerates all rental terms. Attorneys discuss the particulars of your property and its occupancy and construct clear, detailed leases that cover all aspects of your rental agreement. When you present a lease to a prospective tenant, you will feel confident that you are absolutely in compliance with Missouri law and that your rights are protected should a dispute arise.

Protecting Tenants’ Rights to Security Deposits

MO law specifies the usage, retention, and return of security deposits. If your landlord fails to follow these strict regulations, a skilled attorney can help you to collect what is due to you. Your attorney will first pursue the most cost-effective route of demanding payment from your landlord. If necessary, they are ready to assertively defend your rights in court.

Resolving an Eviction Crisis

Eviction is disruptive to both the landlord and the tenant. The landlord must spend the time and money to replace tenants who fall behind on rent, and displaced families must locate a new home under traumatic circumstances. With this scenario in mind, your attorney will help mediate disputes when eviction is undesirable. If you are a tenant who unfairly faces eviction, an attorney can protect your right to remain in your home. If you are a landlord whose tenants are engaged in disruptive, illegal, or damaging behavior, you need a diligent attorney to help you to protect your property and your business.
