Florida Landlord/Tenant Attorneys

Navigating the landlord/tenant relationship

Every property is different and every landlord and tenant has varying goals and expectations. While using a form contract for a lease may seem like a good way to save money and time, form agreements often omit crucial issues that are important for a particular transaction.  That is why it is important for a landlord to have an experienced Panama City, Panama City Beach or Sandestin real estate attorney review a lease agreement before presenting it to tenants.

Burke Blue attorneys know that it is best for lease agreements to be distinct, clear and complete so potential issues can be minimized. The law generally favors tenants in landlord/tenant disputes.  For this reason, it is important for landlords to protect themselves with a well-drafted lease that clearly defines their rights and responsibilities.  The Panama City, Panama City Beach and Sandestin real estate attorneys of Burke Blue understand that a sound and comprehensive lease can go a long way toward preventing landlord and tenant disputes.  Our attorneys have been using their legal knowledge and experience to foster mutually beneficial relationships between landlords and tenants for the past 40 years.

Commercial leases in Florida

Commercial leases must address in detail a variety of issues such as liability for insurance and property maintenance, tenant’s rights to modify the property and ownership of such modifications, methods for determining rent and more. For business owners seeking to lease commercial property, negotiating a commercial lease can be daunting. The attorneys of Burke Blue can provide counsel and representation during commercial lease negotiations to help commercial lessees get a lease that meets their business needs.

Landlord/tenant disputes

The attorneys at Burke Blue are proactive in their legal approach, but sometimes legal disputes can arise.  When this happens, both landlords and tenants need experienced legal counsel to protect their rights. At Burke Blue, our real estate lawyers advise and represent both landlords and tenants regarding various issues, including lease disputes, breaches, evictions and more. Our Panama City, Panama City Beach and Sandestin real estate attorneys help tenants assert their rights against uncooperative or inadequate landlords. But they also help landlords protect the value and profitability of their properties by dealing with troublesome tenants within the strictures of the law.
