Effective Resolution Of Landlord-Tenant Issues

Landlords and tenants of real property often have questions or disagreements about their legal rights. These can quickly escalate to landlord-tenant disputes and even litigation. Plus, with California municipalities enacting their own specific residential rent and eviction control ordinances, understanding the law and your rights in San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley and Richmond. The municipal laws, as well as the state and federal laws that regulate commercial real estate, are also continually updated and amended, which can make it difficult to understand, analyze, interpret and interact with them.

When disputes arise between residential or commercial landlords and tenants, Beckman Blair LLP can help. Our two real estate attorneys have nearly 50 years of combined legal experience and extensive knowledge of federal, state and municipal rent and eviction laws.
