Drafting solid leases for property owners
Both landlords and tenants can avoid potential problems by having a well-drafted contract that enumerates all rental terms. Lindsey M. Porter discusses the particulars of your property and its occupancy and constructs a clear, detailed lease that covers all aspects of your rental agreement. When you present a lease to a prospective tenant, you will feel confident that you are absolutely in compliance with Florida law and that your rights are protected should a dispute arise.

Resolving an eviction crisis
Eviction is disruptive to both the landlord and the tenant. The landlord must spend the time and money to replace tenants who fall behind on rent, and a displaced family must locate a new home under traumatic circumstances.
