How to Find a Landlord Eviction Attorney
Ask the Attorney
How to Find and Choose a Good Eviction AttorneyBy John Nuzzolese
Do you know how many landlords get legal advice on landlord tenant matters from unqualified family members and acquaintances?
Some landlords even ask their other tenants or their unqualified brother in law for advice. The sad fact is most landlords DO NOT even have an eviction attorney to turn to when tenant problems arise. They'd rather ask their friends, neighbors, and auto mechanics for advice. Most are too afraid to employ a lawyer because of the expense. The courts are full of novice landlords having their cases thrown out in favor of the tenant because of some minor mistake in the paperwork, all because they were trying to save the attorneys fee. Well, I have news for those landlords: Bad tenants who don't pay rent can be more expensive than paying an attorney to do an eviction.
A real estate attorney experienced in landlord tenant law is an essential element of your landlord tool-kit if you want to be successful as a real estate investor / landlord.
If you are searching for a good landlord attorney, there are a few ways to narrow down your search.
If you are going to interview eviction attorneys, I suggest you ask a few key questions.
An "on the ball" eviction attorney will have the answers to these questions on the spot. Pay attention to # 4- because that should be an easy one to answer if the attorney is familiar with the Landlord Tenant Court schedule.
I can't stress enough how important it is to develop a relationship with a good landlord attorney. It will be an empowering and liberating feeling to know you are prepared to do what must be done in order to run an efficient landlording business.
