Our seasoned landlord and property management attorneys are prepared to help protect your properties and your returns by providing the following legal services:
If a tenant is failing to pay rent or otherwise in violation of the lease agreement, we take swift action. If a tenant needs to be evicted, our attorneys have more than 30 years combined experience litigating in Utah courts and recovering money on behalf of our clients.
It is difficult to overstate the importance of having a well-drafted commercial lease agreement. Our attorneys provide commercial lease language that is easy to understand by all parties, protects the landlord from liability, provides for a healthy landlord tenant relationship, and protects the property being leased.
Unfortunately, sometimes tenants do not treat leased property as if it were their own. Our attorneys pursue tenants to recover money for damage they or their guests cause to leased property.
Utah law allows for the forced eviction of a residential tenant in as little as 2 weeks. Often, residential tenants faced with eviction do not understand the law or the risks associated with eviction. Our eviction notices educate tenants to persuade them to vacate the property voluntarily. If they fail to do so within 3 days, we provide start to finish eviction services for low fees, with discounted rates for volume clients.
land use and zoning
We help landlords and property owners navigate their way through the sometimes complex world of municipal and county land use and zoning law.
We provide comprehensive, easy-to-understand residential lease agreements that are in line with Utah law and are designed first and foremost to protect the landlord and the property, but also to provide for an efficient and low maintenance lease arrangement.
fair housing defense
Whether merited or not, landlords and property managers are sometimes accused of discriminating against a potential or existing tenant based on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, disability, source of income, familial status, sexual orientation, or gender identity. We have extensive experience defending clients before the Utah Anti-Discrimination and Labor Division and in court.
