TLF represents both landlords and tenants. Unlawful detainers (eviction lawsuits) are all about speed. Often times there is much more to it than simply serving a Three Day Notice and then filing suit. You have to prepare fast and respond even faster.
We know how to get them out and we know how to enforce your rights if you are a renter. For example, there are many scenarios where tenants in Los Angeles have to be paid over $18,000 for relocation fees prior to vacating the property. There are differences between commercial evictions and residential evictions and we know what to do. You have a right to discovery (get the other side's evidence prior to trial) but the rules of engagement are much different and much faster than a regular civil lawsuit. Sometimes we need to get a jury, sometimes we don't. Each case is slightly different and no matter what the scenario we will effectuate an outcome that meets your goals.
Evictions are just one area of landlord tenant law. TLF also can help you with the following issues:
- Rent control issues
- Nuisance problems
- Foreclosure issues for owners, renters and buyers
- Relocation fee claims
- Leases (residential and commercial)
- Rent increases/change in lease terms
- Tenant repair and deduct
- Estoppel certificates
- Land use and zoning
- City/County inspections and citations
- Restraining Orders
- Constructive eviction
- Lawsuits for damages
TLF represents both landlords and tenants and much of what we do involves lawsuits between these two. The issues are numerous. Sometimes a tenant leaves early and money is still owing on the lease. Sometimes there are habitability issues and the landlord is refusing to do what needs to be done to fix things. Whatever the problem may be, TLF can help. We always try to negotiate and settle the case before going to court. But the best way to settle any case is to be aggressive and to know you way around the courthouse should a
lawsuit become required. That is where TLF comes. Nicholas Tepper has been going to court litigating cases since 1993. TLF will help you optimize your chances of getting the results you want.
