Tenant and Landlord
A Lawyer For Landlords And Tenants
While the San Francisco Bay Area is one of the most desirable locations in the country in many ways, it can also be a very difficult place to live. That can be true whether you’re a landlord or a renter.
When the economy is booming, tenants face high demand and high rents. Even during those times when the demand is not so high, landlords face high real estate prices, tight regulations and, often, high taxes and thin profit margins. As a result of these and other pressures, landlord-tenant disputes are common in California, and perhaps especially so in the East Bay.
Currently, the court is closed to the public and not available to assist landlords and tenants in resolving landlord-tenant disputes. The only exception is if your tenant is posing a danger to others and safety is an issue. We are monitoring the court’s website closely to become aware of the date when you can file papers and resolve your dispute in court.
At the Law Offices of Patricia Turnage, located in Hayward, we help both landlords and tenants with many types of legal issues, including:
- Building code violations
- Unpaid rent
- Commercial landlords
- Commercial lease disputes
- Contract disputes
- Breach of warranty of habitability
We have experience in both residential and commercial landlord-tenant matters, and we work hard to protect the rights of our clients.
