Landlord Tenant Law

Landlord Tenant Law covers the legal rights and protections bestowed upon both landlords and tenants, and helps guide the negotiations and contracts executed between these two parties.

Baltimore Landlord Tenant Attorneys will represent either the tenant or landlord when a rental agreement has been allegedly breached and an agreement cannot be reached. These attorneys can usually delay or prevent an eviction, and immediately stop landlord harassment.

If you're a landlord your Landlord Tenant Lawyer can help you construct rental agreements, evict tenants, go after unpaid rent, and ensure you're operating under the law when you take any actions against a breaching tenant.

If you're a tenant, a Landlord Tenant Law Firm can help you fight off landlord abuse and harassment, review rental contracts, stop evictions, and get your security deposit returned. Make sure your rights to a habitable unit are fully protected.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.

What to Expect from an Initial Consultation

  • Seek to determine whether the attorney can represent you. There is no one-size-fits-all legal solution and it may turn out your needs are better served by an attorney in a different specialization.
  • It's important to find a legal ally who is both competent in the law and someone you can trust to protect your interests.
  • Discuss how the practice's billing works and discuss possible additional charges or fees that may arise during or after the resolution of your case.

An attorney consultation should provide you with enough information so that you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with legal help.

How much does it cost to hire an attorney?

In general, how much an attorney costs will often depend on these four factors: billing method and pricing structure, type of legal work performed, law firm prestige, and attorney experience. Depending on the legal issue you are facing, an attorney may bill you by the hour, settle on a flat fee, or enter into a contingency fee agreement. The type of legal work you need help with will also play a role in cost incurred.
