Winter Haven Commercial And Residential Lease Attorney

The Internet has spawned a widespread do-it-yourself (DIY) mentality that encroaches upon almost any industry you can think of. Individuals are now encouraged to publish their own books, make their own beer or tackle their own major home remodeling projects.

The legal world has not escaped this trend. Among other things, websites encourage property owners to draft their own business property lease and residential lease agreements. It sounds great, until you are faced with a legal dispute with a tenant and you discover that you don't have a leg to stand on because your DIY contract did not adequately protect you.

Don't get caught in a lease you can't escape. Commercial and residential property owners are not the only ones who should protect themselves when signing lease agreements. We review lease agreements for renters as well to protect their interests and prevent expensive litigation.

The Cost Of Proper Protection Is A Bargain

At the office of J. Kelly Kennedy, Attorney/CPA, PLLC, in Winter Haven, Florida, we have rescued a number of commercial and residential property owners who discovered the hard way that creating their own lease agreement was a regrettable case of being penny-wise and pound-foolish.

Often, landlords believe they are safeguarding their interests by writing protective language into a lease agreement only to find out later that what they stipulated is illegal or against public policy. We have seen a number of cases where a property owner struggled to evict a tenant because of a poorly written DIY lease agreement.

We review commercial and residential leases and identify hidden charges or potential "traps" for landlords or renters. If you have questions about an existing or proposed lease agreement, call 863-877-4723 or use our contact form to schedule a consultation with a knowledgeable residential and commercial lease lawyer.
