LANDLORD AND TENANT LAW

Handling the Full Range of Legal Issues Involved in Commercial or Residential Leases

Whether you are involved in an eviction proceeding because of non-payment of rent by a residential tenant or a tense negotiation over renewal of a commercial lease, an experienced Maryland landlord tenant dispute lawyer at Azari Law LLC can analyze applicable documents, investigate relevant facts, and constructively engage in negotiations.  Our commitment to thoroughness permits us to tenaciously represent our clients’ interests in all stages of litigation, including trial.  While Azari Law LLC primarily represents landlords in residential and commercial lease disputes, we occasionally represent tenants, particularly commercial tenants, depending on the facts and circumstances.

We have represented a broad spectrum of landlords in lease disputes, such as large corporations with multiple apartment complexes, owners of large commercial office building, companies with manufacturing facilities, and individuals leasing single residential dwellings.  If your tenant is failing to make rental payments or holding over under a residential or commercial lease, time is of the essence because eviction proceedings move quickly, as they should to protect your investment.  A protracted dispute without payment of rental income can jeopardize a landlord’s holding by inhibiting the landlord’s ability to turn the property over so it again is generating income or impairing the ability of an owner renting a property to make the mortgage payment.  Our law firm works promptly to reclaim your right to your property while legally removing recalcitrant tenants.

Fast and Effective Representation in the Full Range of Lease Disputes

Mr. Azari’s commitment to work fast to resolve landlord tenant disputes while explaining our clients legal rights has helped our law firm garner a broad spectrum of acknowledgements and acclaim including:

  • “Clients’ Choice” Award – AVVO 2015
  • Nearly Four Dozen “5 Star” Ratings by prior clients – AVVO
  • Top 100 Trial Lawyers Designation – The National Trial Lawyers

Mr. Azari will meet with you to evaluate your situation, so he can efficiently conduct a factual investigation and legal research to facilitate effective negotiation or success in litigation. Our law firm is committed to developing a reputation for providing straightforward legal advice and crafting creative solutions to lease disputes. Whether we are providing legal guidance or representing clients in litigation, our approach is to seek cost-effective solutions. At Azari Law LLC, we handle the full range of landlord tenant disputes, including but not limited to the following:

  • Residential evictions
  • Commercial evictions
  • Negotiation of commercial leases
  • Drafting lease agreements
  • Property damage
  • Illegal or unauthorized use of the premises
  • Unpaid rent disputes (late rent)
  • Tenant holdovers
  • Allegations of uninhabitable conditions
  • Security deposit issues
  • Lease Termination
  • Breach of contract
  • Unauthorized assignment or sub-leasing
  • Responsibility for repairs under commercial lease
  • Discontinuation of utilities to rental unit
  • Claims of illegal “lockout” of tenant
  • Landlord/tenant rights and responsibilities
  • Title disputes (foreclosure of rental properties)

The majority of lease arrangements succeed because the landlord is agreeable, and the tenant fulfills all duties under the lease. Disagreements can arise because of poor communication, financial struggles of a business or even misfeasance by either or both parties. Our law firm can help you resolve your dispute through reasonable negotiation or aggressively advocating for your legal rights and best interests, so the terms of the lease or rental agreement are fulfilled.

When you cannot reach an acceptable resolution to your landlord tenant dispute, a Maryland landlord tenant lawyer at Azari Law LLC can provide sound legal advice, sage counsel and persuasive advocacy. Mr. Azari will craft the strongest legal argument under the lease agreement and applicable law to ensure that other party must fulfill his or her obligations under the lease agreement.
