Florida Landlord and Tenant Attorney

Protecting Florida property owners

Our firm focuses on landlord representation. R. Todd Burbine, Esq. represent businesses and individuals in issues involving commercial and residential rental properties. We can help you develop effective leases and reach resolution to disputes in such cases as:

  • Residential evictions
  • Commercial evictions
  • Residential leases
  • Commercial leases
  • Commercial build-outs
  • Property management issues
  • Security deposit disputes
  • Tenant non-compliance
  • Non-payment of rent

Drafting leases

A well-drafted lease prevents potential problems between landlords and tenants. Our real estate lawyers prepare solid documents that clearly enumerate rental terms — such as price, usage, occupancy and liabilities. All of our leases strictly comply with Florida law so that the rights of all parties are protected.

Eviction representation

Eviction is typically the most undesirable situation for tenants and landlords. For this reason, our landlord-tenant attorneys seek to mediate disputes to avoid eviction if it is in your best interest to do so. We represent landlords whose tenants have failed to pay their rent or have engaged in disruptive or illegal actions that are diminishing property value.

Litigating landlord-tenant disputes

The security deposit is a common cause of disputes between vacating tenants and property owners — with tenants demanding return of their money and landlords insisting the condition in which the tenants are leaving the property warrants retention.  We defend landlords who can show that the funds are required to make repairs to damaged real estate.
