Protecting Your Investment
When property owners find themselves in a position where the return on investment (ROI) is threatened, Offit Kurman offers the experience and expertise to ensure that the client's opportunity for financial return is secure. The Landlord Representation Group processes thousands of cases every month for residential and commercial ‘failure to pay rent’ suits; filing electronically where authorized, and making nearly daily court appearances to expedite our clients’ ability to collect overdue rent. The real estate lawyers at Offit Kurman Attorneys At Law also file breach of lease and hold-over cases, and prepare the required notices (bilingual when required) before the suit for possession is filed. Finally, the landlord representation attorneys at Offit Kurman Attorneys At Law see it through to the actual eviction of the tenant and assist in collection of amounts due from dispossessed tenants. We provide a complete and cost-effective approach and strategy from beginning to end.
