Kristine and Monique have experience equally representing both landlords and tenants in both residential and commercial contexts. In addition to handling drafting, reviewing and negotiating both residential and commercial leases, we also handle lease breaches, damage deposit disputes, back-rent issues and other issues relative to rental properties.
“The firm has always expertly handled all of my residential lease and any related real property matters. I would strongly recommend the firm to anyone who requires a high level of professional legal assistance with residential lease and general real property matters in the State of Rhode Island.”
Kristine and Monique approach Landlord and Tenant matters as they do their other practice areas in that they work hard to encourage landlords and tenants to work together to reach a resolution that is considerate of both parties’ needs and one that is able to effectively be carried out.
Leases are highly customizable and negotiable which is why they should be carefully crafted and tailored to your individual and the property’s specific circumstances. Moreover, Landlord/Tenant law is very nuanced with specific procedures, timelines and deadlines that must be followed so you want to make sure you have a strong lease in place, regardless of whether you are the Landlord or Tenant.
No. Again, leases and lease terms can be very specific to your individual needs and most terms can be negotiated.
