Legal Support In Landlord-Tenant Disputes
Robinson & Robinson represents local and out-of-state landlords in all legal matters. Whether a landlord-tenant dispute is straightforward or features unique challenges, our decades of experience allow us to get results. Our firm does not represent tenants.
Our lawyers draft and review leases for landlords. We take great care working with our real estate clients to ensure that leases are designed to meet their needs and protect their interests and that security deposits are handled correctly.
We provide complete representation in evictions. Landlords choose our law firm because we do all the work, keeping them out of the courtroom and allowing them to focus on day-to-day business. We handle all notices, including notices to cease in cases of nonpayment, tenant misconduct or lease violations, as well as notices to quit. For evictions, our job is to file the complaint in landlord-tenant court (Cumberland County Superior Court, landlord-tenant division) and to attend the hearing on behalf of the landlord. Once a judgment of possession is obtained, we request the warrant for removal, have it served and arrange lockouts with the local sheriff’s department as necessary.
We assist landlords in obtaining unpaid rent. Our attorneys have the skill to handle cases in which tenants file bankruptcy, protecting themselves from creditor claims. We know the motions that must be filed in bankruptcy court to remove that protection and pull the matter into landlord-tenant court for collection.
We help landlords file a range of claims against tenants and defend landlords against all lawsuits brought by tenants and other parties.
