Allies For Landlords In Disputes With Tenants

Conflict from your tenants can quickly mushroom into legal action. Contacting an attorney early in a dispute can keep your options open and protect your rights as a landlord.

At Burns & Hansen, P.A., we represent Twin Cities landlords of all varieties, including residential and commercial property owners. Our real estate law attorneys have extensive knowledge of Minnesota’s landlord-tenant laws and a record of favorable results in both litigation and out-of-court solutions.

Representing Your Rights As A Landlord

Minnesota law is protective of tenants’ rights, particularly residential renters. As a result, landlords must be careful to follow certain steps in any actions adverse to the tenants. Our lawyers counsel the owners of apartment buildings, duplexes and other rental units, including owners of office buildings, retail centers or other commercial properties in the following matters:

  • Drafting or review of lease agreements
  • Lease violations (noise, unauthorized occupants, subletting, etc.)
  • Disputes over repairs and maintenance
  • Back rent
  • Early termination
  • Damage deposits and disposition of property left behind
  • Right of first refusal to renew

If you are moving to evict, we can guide you through the issues of serving a proper eviction notice, going to court, reshowing the apartment or space, retaining deposits or law enforcement action to forcibly evict. We can also advise on whether to pursue or write off unpaid rent.

Learn Your Rights And Enforce Them

COVID-19 and related issues have posed difficult challenges for Minnesota landlords in recent years, particularly with regard to evictions. Our firm is ready to address these issues in a practical, forward-thinking manner that protects landlords’ interests now and in the future.
