Landlord/Tenant Disputes Attorney in Lynchburg

Representing Landlords Involved in Complex Legal Matters

Landlord/tenant law applies to nearly every Virginia citizen and resident, including those who lease or manage properties. If you are a landlord or property manager, you need competent representation for matters arising from the complex relationship you have with your tenants. Our Lynch landlord/tenant disputes attorney can assist you in drafting both residential and commercial leases, and help you when tenants breach the terms of their leases. Virginia law can be a minefield for landlords when enforcing leases. A wrong move can be costly and time consuming. We recognize you need to respond quickly and effectively when disputes arise, and we do our utmost to resolve your concerns as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Before you take legal action against a tenant, it’s important to consult with a landlord/tenant attorney to ensure you have a legal basis, and to protect yourself from legal action taken against you for wrongful actions.

We keep your best interests in mind when dealing with areas such as:

  • Drafting a legally sound lease agreement
  • Evictions and unlawful detainers
  • Lease violations, including failure to pay rent
  • Contract disputes
  • Lease reviews
  • Transactional disputes
  • Month-to-month termination notices
  • Collection of unpaid rent/damages

Why Should I Hire a Landlord/Tenant Lawyer?

Virginia landlord/tenant law provides strict procedures and timelines for landlords and tenants. Failure to adhere to the laws in the Virginia Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (VRLTA) and other statues could make a dispute with a tenant more lengthy and costly than it needs to be. For this reason, it’s important to hire a lawyer familiar with Virginia landlord/tenant laws if you are trying to evict a tenant, enforce a lease, or collect unpaid rent or payment for damages. In many cases, a landlord’s attorney fees are paid by the tenant.

Residential landlords are prohibited from “self-help” evictions.

When a landlord is evicting a residential tenant, there are specific notice requirements that must be followed before a lawsuit is filed. A landlord must allow a residential tenant five days to “pay or quit” before filing an unlawful detainer action in the General District Court. If you are facing an uncompliant tenant who breaches lease stipulations or will not pay rent, you should consult with our experienced landlord/tenant law attorney in Lynchburg to clearly and fully understand the eviction procedures you must follow.
