As a property owner and a landlord, you are running a business that for the most part will be a smooth operation. But from time to time, a tenant may fall on hard times, lose a job, go through a divorce or any other number of life changes that may make it difficult for them to continue to pay you rent in a timely manner.
Because you’re dealing with issues of where a person lives, these kinds of disputes can get heated, creating a high degree of stress for landlords and property owners.
To remove that stress and to make sure your financial interests are protected, you should consider hiring a landlord representation attorney such as John Hixson. Mr. Hixson brings 30 years of law practice to his work, ensuring you get a seasoned and experienced attorney who is well versed in the inner workings of landlord and tenant rights, property issues and the eviction process.
By removing yourself from the front lines as a landlord, you are more able to view the situation objectively which gives you the upper hand when it comes to interpreting the law and protecting your interests in the best way possible.
No matter what a tenant’s personal circumstances are, they have entered into a business agreement with you and must fulfill the terms of that agreement. If they do not, they can be subject to eviction from your property.
These are not pleasant issues to deal with, and many times, tenants know just enough about the law to make your life miserable. However, when an attorney represents your interests, you immediately gain the upper hand.
An attorney will be well versed in rental and eviction laws will understand how local courts function, and is trained to deal with difficult non-paying renters. This means they can more easily put your interests first and not be burdened by false claims, threats and some forms of intimidation.
The bottom line is that hiring someone who can take care of everything from paperwork to court proceeding appearances to other eviction matters, will make your life much easier. Hiring an attorney is also helpful if you need to focus your attention elsewhere. It pays to do your due diligence when it comes to hiring an attorney, but your efforts should include contacting business and real estate attorney John A. Hixson who offers many legal services including tenant eviction services for landlords and landlord legal representation in tenant-landlord conflicts.
