How can an attorney help with landlord representation?

Some instances that an attorney may help with landlord representation in Texas include:

  • Eviction for all grounds including nonpayment of rent
  • Violation of lease agreements, i.e. pet violations
  • Title issues
  • Premises liability i.e. slip and fall accidents
  • Early termination due to breaking conditions of a signed lease
  • Rent recovery
  • Condemnation
  • Tenant Right of First Refusal
  • Disputed Lease terms

John Hixson has firsthand knowledge of landlord-tenant law in Texas and how issues develop. He can help clients to find resolution with a variety of disputes (including and not limited to those mentioned above).

Payment of rent is a contractual obligation of a lease. If someone is behind on their rent payments then they are in default of a lease. The only time they are legally allowed to withhold rent is for their right to repair and deduct. For instance, if you as a landlord, fail to fix something in their place such as heating or cooling or a water heater. Rent collection, evictions and other disputes are all matters that an Arlington, Texas lawyer can help with.
