Landlord-Tenant & Real Estate
We are here to help you structure your real estate transactions successfully.
DREAM AND COMPLETE: Attorney Miller can explain in detail how a new business owner can go from being a tenant, to building and owning their own commercial building, and then successfully diversifying into other real estate holdings (He started his law practice in farm house where the current office is located).
COLLABORATE: Attorney Miller can advise on being a member in a Company with non-family members; bringing a successful commercial real estate project from dream (dirt stage) to reality with other parties who have a shared vision (drive by Town Park Center on Massillon Rd. in Green – Attorney Miller was one of 4 members who brought the project to life).
SUCCEED WITH A PLAN AND COUNSEL: Attorney Miller can advise on owning residential real estate or commercial real estate from a “been there, done that” perspective. He can help you think through the aspects of your project from dream, to getting it financed, to seeing a backhoe on site, and then actually occupying the new location for your business, or successfully leasing the project for profit.
To the uninitiated – owning real estate can create land mines of legal issues – let us give you peace of mind and counsel.
One of the most rewarding investments can be owning real estate and being a Landlord. The consistent monthly revenue makes a great supplementation to any income. However, issues arise under Ohio’s Landlord-Tenant Act that can make the process a nightmare. Problems or questions can emerge at many different times. Attorneys at the Paul Miller Law Firm, LLC, will help draft, protect, and enforce your rights and protect your property:
1. Drafting your Lease
A Lease is your Landlord rulebook that a Tenant must follow. It is a document that outlines important Landlord rights that may need to be enforced later in a courtroom. Rights that may, or may not, protect your real estate investment. When renting your property, the only shields protecting your real estate investment are your Lease and Ohio’s Landlord-Tenant Act. Attorneys will carefully examine your unique situation, tailor your Lease to your specific needs, and draft your Lease while thinking towards the future.
2. Fulfilling Your Statutory Obligations as a Landlord
Attorneys will ensure that you are properly abiding by the Landlord obligations mandated by Ohio’s Landlord-Tenant Act. Questions may arise and our attorneys will be there to help protect you against a tenant lawsuit.
3. Enforcing your Lease and your Rights
The well-known Lease enforcement procedure is the eviction. Much less understood is the complex process required to complete the eviction and the pitfalls that emerge along the way. Attorneys will be in your corner properly guiding you from start to finish.
