Landlord/Tenant Disputes:

RMKB lawyers bring an aggressive, yet practical approach to Landlord-Tenant matters.

Representing residential landlords, commercial landlords and tenants in disputes concerning leases, habitability, rent increases, wrongful eviction, unlawful detainer, square footage, breach of contract, discrimination, retaliation and toxic (mold, asbestos) exposure, is an extensive component of the Firm’s real estate practice.  Clients range from small, family-operated owners with a duplex, to large, sophisticated property owners who have 500+ unit portfolios.

Several lawyers also have expertise handling residential landlord-tenant disputes in sensitive Rent Board and Eviction Controlled jurisdictions [such as San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, West Hollywood and Santa Monica].  The attorneys are frequently invited to present seminars to residential landlord trade associations and do an excellent job of keeping clients and contacts abreast of developing laws and helpful tips for successfully managing rental property and tenants through regular e-mail newsletters
