Lease Disputes & Evictions

Experienced Lawyers Assisting Landlords and Tenants with the Resolution of Lease Disputes and Eviction Issues in Akron

Rental agreements and leases are binding contracts. In some situations, however, the landlord-tenant arrangement does not go as planned. Individuals involved in a landlord-tenant dispute need a lawyer on their side who can ensure that their legal rights remain protected throughout the legal process. 

The experienced Akron lease dispute and eviction lawyers at Niekamp, Weisensell, Mutersbaugh & Mastrantonio, LLP can first review the lease language in order to make sure that the contract is legally valid in the State of Ohio, and that it complies with all applicable state regulations. We can then assist with helping to bring about a resolution to the lease dispute. Please contact us today to find out more about how we could assist you with your dispute. 

Representing Landlords

The experienced Akron lease dispute and eviction lawyers at Niekamp, Weisensell, Mutersbaugh & Mastrantonio, LLP can assist landlords with the following:

  • Identifying next steps upon a tenant’s violation of lease terms
  • Helping apartment complex owners or individual landlords handle eviction proceedings in the Ohio municipal court system
  • Making sure that all property that is owned by tenants is properly stored
  • Making sure that tenant move-outs are scheduled in the proper manner
  • Defending against tenant claims or counterclaims

Our experienced legal team can also assist landlords with drafting a lease agreement that satisfies all of the provisions mandated by the State of Ohio. Specifically, your lawyer can craft an effective agreement that gives the landlord specific rights should the tenant fail to pay rent or violate the lease. The agreement can also advise landlords of the timelines and procedures necessary to pursue an eviction lawfully. Finally, the agreement can set forth the appropriate actions a landlord could take to recover his or her damages when a tenant fails to pay rent.

  • Making sure that landlords do not retaliate when a tenant requests reasonable improvements necessary to make the property safe – and pursuing a legal remedy against the landlord if and when he or she does retaliate
