Rochester Landlord Tenant Attorneys
Experienced Rochester Landlord Tenant Attorneys Providing Practical Counsel and Effective Legal Representation
When handled correctly, a rental property is arguably the best investment there is. A stable tenant that pays the rent on time and in full is a great asset which generates predictable cash flow and builds wealth for the property’s owner. Handled incorrectly, a rental property can seriously limit your ability to build wealth. Non- payment, insolvency, nuisance and illegal subletting are all examples in which not only the owner’s cash flow is threatened, but even the property itself might be at risk.
At Friedman & Ranzenhofer, our Rochester Landlord Tenant Attorneys have been handling cases for more than 30 years. In this role we have made sure time and time again that both landlords and commercial property tenants are protected and compliant with all relevant legislation and state law. We have consistently minimized risks for our clients and ensured that they have the peace of mind to concentrate on their core businesses.
