Landlord - Tenant Law

San Francisco Landlord - Tenant Attorney - San Francisco Bay Area Landlord - Tenant Lawyer

Although landlord-tenancy is a more discrete area of law, it can be complex and our experience in this area is extensive. We have advised numerous individuals and companies regarding both residential and commercial landlord-tenant law and have assisted with issues concerning apartment buildings, multi-unit complexes, condominiums, single family houses and commercial spaces.

Landlord-tenant matters can present extremely important and sensitive concerns. Landlords need to protect their investment, making sure that tenants do not diminish the value of their real estate. On the other hand, tenants wish to live in habitable, safe and adequately maintained dwellings. Because of the involvement of such important and personal issues, landlords and tenants oftentimes cannot resolve their issues without resort to the legal system, no matter how hard they try. Szeto Law Group is experienced in dealing with landlord-tenant issues and helping our clients reach their goals.

Szeto Law Group provides its clients with sound legal and practical advice to prevent problems from escalating. Even when landlord - tenant matters seem to be getting out of hand, the attorneys of Szeto Law Group are often able to efficiently resolve these issues without resorting to litigation. However, if trial is the only solution, Szeto Law Group will be there to aggressively protect its clients' property rights and interests. We have litigated cases involving unlawful detainer (eviction), breach of lease, breach of covenant of quiet enjoyment, habitability issues, negligence, nuisance, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent infliction of emotional distress, fraud, intentional misrepresentation and negligent misrepresentation.
