Ways a Lawyer can Help Protect a Landlord

Being a landlord comes with a lot of responsibility. You are ultimately responsible for the upkeep of the property that your tenant is living in. On the flip side, renting can be a smart investment and an effective way to make money. If you are interested in becoming a landlord, having a trusted lawyer at the Lake of the Ozarks is a good idea. As a landlord, you will want to legally protect yourself and your property. Learn how O’Donnell Law Center can help protect landlords below.

Prepare a Lease

Before anyone rents your property, it’s important to have a well written lease. A lawyer knows exactly what you need in a lease and can help protect you with the correct verbiage in this document. After you implement your lease, it’s a good idea to have it reviewed from time to time to make sure no new provisions are needed.

Notice to Vacate

Before you can evict a tenant, you’ll need to file the proper notice.  A lawyer can help you prepare and serve your notice, and how to move forward with the eviction process.

Evict a Tenant

Once the tenant has received the notice, they have a specific date by which to leave the premises. If they do not comply, you will likely need to seek more legal action. Our law center can help guide you through the process.

Recover Funds

If a tenant has failed to pay rent or has damaged your property beyond normal wear and tear, they may be responsible for the damages. It can be difficult to get a tenant to pay damages and/or rent they owe but we can help you get the legal ball rolling.

If you are planning to become a landlord in 2019, it’s a good idea to legally prepare and protect yourself for your new venture. Our Lake of the Ozarks lawyer can help put together legally binding agreements as you move forward as a landlord.
