If you’re renting or leasing space, there’s a chance you’ll need a real estate attorney. Whether you’re a tenant, landlord, or a representative of a homeowner association or property management company, when troubles arise, you want a lawyer you can trust. An attorney dedicated to real estate law in Chicago can represent you in building code violation hearings, help you sort out zoning matters, fight for your rights in court at eviction hearings, and ensure that all of your real estate transactions are on the up-and-up.
When you rent a residential space, you go about making it your home. The last thing you want to think about is the possibility of an eviction or any kind of trouble with your landlord, which is why a residential lease is so important. If you don’t have any background in legal matters, sorting out all the finer points of your lease can be intimidating and, as a result, many people just sign on the dotted line without stopping to consider what they’re putting their signature on. But, upon further examination, you’ll find that you have rights as a tenant as set out in your lease that your landlord is contractually bound to respect. If you’ve found yourself in a position where your landlord doesn’t uphold parts of this contractual agreement, you may want to consider hiring the services of a real estate lawyer.
As you probably know, that lease is equally contractually binding upon your tenants. If you find yourself in a position where they are egregiously violating that contract, you may have to push for eviction. This can be a sticky situation, as both involved parties have a lot at stake. Hiring a real estate lawyer to represent your interests at an eviction hearing is essential. Those legal fees you will be paying will ensure that your rights as a landlord are upheld.
