Commercial and Residential Landlord-Tenant Disputes and Evictions

The emergence of the coronavirus has catapulted landlord-tenant disputes throughout the nation. The surge of unemployment from furloughs, layoffs, and the closures of businesses has created uncertainty for landlords and tenants alike. The crisis has given rise to state and federal government interventions through eviction moratoriums for residential dwellings due to nonpayment of rent to prevent massive homelessness for those that have been affected.

The federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) expired on July 24, 2020. Subsequently, The Center for Disease Control and Prevention imposed an unprecedented nationwide federal moratorium on residential evictions scheduled to expire on June 30, 2021. This order was initiated to mitigate the spread of the virus from homelessness and the overcrowding conditions of residences and shelters. With this order in place, landlords have no recourse to terminate tenancies for nonpayment of rent. They are unable to meet their financial obligations such as mortgages and expenses on rental properties.

At the Michael Brady Lynch Firm, we offer Strategic Resolution of Landlord-Tenant Disputes

Landlord-tenant disputes are adversarial relationships that lead to evictions. An eviction action occurs when a landlord believes that a tenant has breached the terms of the tenancy. It is essential to seek legal counsel as soon as a conflict arises. Our extensive experience in the judicial process gives our clients the edge on either side of a dispute.

We represent residential and commercial tenants and owners of apartment buildings, restaurants, medical offices, co-ops, condominiums, and other commercial lease enterprises in a wide range of landlord-tenant issues. As a highly recognized nationwide complex litigation law firm, we are prepared to negotiate compensation for breaches of contract aggressively and are always ready for courtroom litigation. We believe in justice and are here to preserve the rights of our clients.

Common Scenarios for Landlord-Tenant Evictions and Litigation

The landlord as the plaintiff:

  • Nonpayment of rent following the termination of the eviction moratorium or failing to comply with the terms and condition set forth by the moratorium
  • Damages to the property, either intentional or by gross negligence
  • Disrupting other tenants
  • Holdover, if the tenant fails to move after their lease has expired
  • Abandoning the premises before the termination of the lease
  • Unpaid utility bills owed by the tenant
  • Expenses to dispose of tenant’s abandoned property
  • Property being used for illegal means by the tenant

The tenant as the plaintiff:

  • Alterations to the unit without the owner’s approval
  • Landlord wrongly withholding a security deposit
  • Unlawful eviction of a tenant by physically removing their belongings, locking them out, or cutting off utilities
  • The rental unit becomes uninhabitable due to the landlord’s negligence
  • The landlord fails to reimburse the tenant for repairs
  • Personal injuries on a property
  • Landlord violations of the tenants right to privacy

Protecting the Rights and Interests of Tenants and Landlords

The Michael Brady Lynch Firm is dedicated to solid advocacy for landlords struggling with tenants or tenants concerned about their rights. The lapse of the eviction moratorium scheduled for June 30, 2021, may set off an alarming number of evictions due to nonpayment of rent. Filing an eviction against a tenant or a tenant defending against eviction requires the knowledge of complex eviction laws. We guide our clients through the process, from the start of the three-day letter to the writ of removal.

The Michael Brady Lynch Firm navigates through the legal process of landlord-tenant disputes and evictions enforcing the lease and the law. Contact our Winter Park office at 888-585-5970 or 877-513-9517 for a confidential, no-obligation case review.
