Real Estate Litigation
For any landlord, whether an individual or landowning corporation, litigation is extremely undesirable. Facing a lawsuit from an angry tenant or having to go to court to enact a legal eviction can deplete your profits faster than a property fire. The long-term costs and complications involved can be insurmountable.
However, with the right legal team behind you, the litigation process is simplified and the outcome much more likely to be favorable for you. At Chenoweth Law Group in Portland, we represent landlords in Oregon, Washington, and California in all types of litigation matters.
By working with a team of experienced real estate litigation attorneys, you can be sure that your case will be handled efficiently and effectively. We aim to minimize the overhead costs to you while getting the most favorable outcome possible.
We represent landlords in litigation matters involving:
- Commercial lease provisions
- Common area maintenance charges (CAM charges)
- Disputes involving signage and other usage provisions
- Build-out provisions in commercial leases
- Collection of unpaid rent
- Defense of lawsuits from tenants
- Other types of commercial landlord-tenant disputes
There are times when the only solution to a landlord-tenant dispute is to take your case to court. However, in many cases, both parties want to avoid this potentially costly and time-consuming approach. We work to solve our clients’ disputes through settlement negotiations whenever possible. This saves our clients time, money, and stress. However, when there is no other choice but to litigate, our lawyers have the experience and tenacity to win.
Our attorneys can provide flexible billing options that will allow you to manage your budget and have some measure of control over what you spend on legal counsel. We understand that real estate transactions and litigation may require limited services. For instance, we can put limits on your research invoices or offer a flat fee for the drafting of routine documents and contracts.
