Most lawyers charge an hourly rate in excess of $150 per hour for their legal services. Some lawyers charge a “low” or “competitive” flat fee for evictions and standardized documents. And if you’ve been in this business long enough, you’ll notice it’s the same fee whether it’s a simple or complex eviction, which means either the attorney isn’t looking over your case or someone else in their office is handling the case for you and the attorney is signing the documents and appearing in Court.
Think about this…
What if you could have a Top Real Estate lawyer handle your case? What if you could follow the exact same process that the best attorneys follow for your eviction matters? What if you could use the same system that they use to get exceptional results, at a fraction of the cost?
We have developed the Ohio Real Estate Investor’s Survival Kit to explain, examine, and prevent Real Estate pitfalls for landlords and investors. Here's some Common Misconceptions about the Landlord Tenant Relationship
- Leases can be written or oral and still be enforceable. Just because it’s in the lease doesn’t mean that it’s enforceable under the law, but having it down in writing is the first step.
- Losing a job or moving to another city doesn’t allow a Tenant out of their lease. The Tenant is responsible for returning the property in the same condition that he/she received it minus reasonable wear and tear.
- You can be a “slumlord” if there are items or problems with the premises, you have to fix them and there are ways the Tenant can force repairs. And under the right circumstances, the Tenant may have the right to move out.
- You can’t retaliate against your Tenants by evicting them for reporting you to the authorities for violations and you can’t just keep their security deposit since they left, but check out the section on Security Deposits for more info.
- To evict a Tenant, you must follow process for Evictions according to the Ohio Revised Code.
- And NO, you can’t just change the locks while the Tenant is away. And by the way, you do have to give reasonable notice, usually 24 hours, before inspecting the premises.
