Enforcing Leases And Protecting Your Rights as a Property Owner

Borah Goldstein has 40 years of experience resolving landlord-tenant disputes. Each party to a lease has contractually obligated duties to the other side. As a property owner or management company, your main concerns are that your tenants pay rent on time, and keep you notified of any issues that arise. Likewise, it is important for you to notify tenants properly and in a timely manner of pending rental increases when it is time for them to renew their leases.

Qualified legal counsel can help you prevent delays in communications and enforcement of leases with your residential or commercial tenants. Turn to Borah Goldstein for trustworthy advice and direction.
