Whether it’s the place you’ll call home or an investment to earn income, buying, renting, and managing property is a personal and expensive undertaking. It’s natural to have a lot of questions, and it can be difficult to find reliable answers. For homebuyers, the agents and lenders make more money when you spend more money, and those facing landlord/tenant issues often find themselves frustrated by a lack of follow-through and recourse. In both situations, it can be difficult to know exactly what your options may be, and it can feel overwhelming trying to make decisions that so directly affect your personal life and your finances.

I help both first-time homebuyers and those facing rental issues as landlords or tenants understand their rights and the legal process. With honesty and attention, I have helped many people resolve their real estate issues quickly and effectively.

Effectively Resolve Your Landlord or Tenant Issues in New Jersey
Renting or leasing is quite common in New Jersey—about 36 percent of the population rents their apartment or home—and these arrangements present their own unique issues. On both sides, individuals and families deserve fair, safe treatment and financial protection. When disputes arise, it’s often difficult to know your rights, and even when you do, it can be even harder to enforce them.
For landlords, while many tenants are reliable and peaceful, there are exceptions. Landlords may feel frustrated and worry about the future of the property when tenants do not act as they should. I have experience helping landlords remove tenants who:
- Breach contract
- Fail to pay rent
- Cause property damage
New Jersey law can make it difficult to address issues with these problem tenants, but I can help landlords successfully prepare all the paperwork and follow the necessary steps to protect their property.
For tenants, compelling a negligent landlord to act can be difficult as well. When landlords fail in their duty to provide safe, functional spaces, what can tenants do? Uninhabitable living conditions, unsecured entries, broken appliances, and more can contribute to a stressful and unsafe living arrangement. Tenants do not have to accept these conditions, and an experienced attorney can help compel landlords to act appropriately under the law.

My experience and dedication to providing personal representation make me an effective advocate to have your side.
