Residential Landlord/Tenant Representation
Are you a property owner or property manager? Being a landlord can be difficult. It is important to have a solid, enforceable lease that reflects the latest updates and changes in the law. It is also important to know what actions you can or are required to take regarding tenant screening, entering the premises once it is rented, making repairs, and evicting tenants.
Are you a tenant? Its important to get solid advice regarding your rights as a tenant. If you are facing an eviction, it is important to get advice as soon as possible.
Our firm represents both landlords and tenants, which gives us a unique perspective in handling our cases.
Commercial Landlord/Tenant Representation
Many new business tenants or commercial property owners make the mistake of assuming what they learned from renting a residence translates into commercial property rentals. Commercial landlord/tenant law is very different than residential landlord/tenant law.
It is important to have a clear lease so that each party knows what their responsibility is especially when it comes to liability coverage; maintenance and repairs; and the payment of taxes, improvements deductibles and premiums.
Real Estate Transactions
Very specific legal requirements must be followed for real estate transfers to be legal and enforceable. Additionally, documents need to be in line with the latest Washington State statutes. We prepare purchase and sale agreements, deeds, and easements when you need to transfer of real estate ownership.
