Our attorneys have strong skills and years of experience in leasing, including the drafting and negotiation of leases. Our attorneys will explain and guide you through the leasing process, advise you concerning what lease provisions are stock or standard, and put you in a position where you can fully understand your contractual obligations and feel comfortable signing your lease.
The attorneys at our law firm also have experience with breaking leases. In some situations, a tenant can argue that they were forced out of their residence due to landlord harassment, a landlord’s refusal to make necessary repairs or quiet a noisy neighbor, or the lack of habitability.
Being forced to leave your home under these circumstances is considered a “constructive eviction” and can be used to break a lease. However, deciding whether one of these circumstances rises to the level of constructive eviction is a complicated issue.
There are several steps a tenant should take before they break their lease. Knowing this, tenants should consult with an LA Tenant Lawyer today regarding their specific situation before taking any action.
