At Meyers, Flowers, Bruno, McPhedran & Herrmann, we represent clients from the very beginning of the selling process, ensuring all of the necessary documentation is properly filed, anticipating any problems, taking the appropriate actions and making sure the transaction successfully closes to the satisfaction of all parties involved.

When leasing commercial or residential properties, it’s always a wise idea to bring in experienced legal counsel to ensure you’re taking the appropriate steps to protect your property and rights. This is important because even a small mistake on your end can put the power in your tenant’s hands, and end up costing you a substantial amount of time and money in the long run.
At Meyers, Flowers, Bruno, McPhedran & Herrmann, we specialize in landlord rights and can help you lawfully prevent and resolve any problems that may arise between you and a tenant. For example, if you’re dealing with nonpayment of rent and problem tenants, we can guide you through the process of re-establishing your property rights. As the eviction process can be timely and pricey, we will first carefully analyze your situation and identify alternative, more cost-effective solutions to take back your property, such as negotiating a mutual release agreement. If alternative solutions prove ineffective, we will complete all of the necessary steps for a lawful eviction while protecting your best interests as a landlord. These steps include:
- Notice. The first step of the eviction process is to serve the tenant with proper written notice of your intent to terminate the lease agreement, as well as your reasons for the termination.
- Lawsuit. If the tenant fails to correct the violation, the next step is to file a lawsuit and have the sheriff give notice to the tenants.
- Court hearing. At the court hearing, we will prove to a judge or jury on your behalf that you have used the correct notice, the lease has been properly terminated and you have a right to possession of the property.
- Order for possession. If the judge rules in our favor, you will get a written order for possession from the court. This will include a judgment for past due rent, court costs and other fees. It will also give the tenant time to move before the actual eviction.
- Eviction. The actual eviction occurs when you place the order for possession with the sheriff. At that point, the sheriff will go the property and forcibly remove the tenant.
