Landlord/Tenant Relations


The landlord-tenant relationship can often be adversarial, and the legal process has evolved based on this dynamic.  Whether you are the property owner or the tenant, it is important to seek experienced legal counsel as soon as disputes arise.  At Lawrence J. Bernard, P.A., we represent property owners who need to draft and enforce leases, as well as tenants who face disputes.

• Breaches of lease

• Cancellation or renewal of lease or lease options

• Residential lease disputes

• Sublease disputes

• Breach of covenant

• Breach of warranty of habitability
