As a landlord for nearly a decade and as an attorney, I can tell you what is in
your lease is crucial. Late fees, when to return the security deposit,
acceptable reasons for withholding the security deposit, whether you can charge
a pet deposit, the definition of abandonment–the language you use in your lease
can have dire consequences. Is your lease up to date with current law? If you
are a real estate agent, are your leases AREC Rule 10 compliant?
Our office drafts leases regularly.
