We Solve Legal Issues for Property Owners and Tenants in Tennessee

As experienced real estate litigators, our attorneys create solutions for landlords and tenants. We successfully bring tenants comfort that they are living in a stable, well-maintained home, while preserving the profits and equity for landlords, who are working hard to run a successful business. For years, we have committed our substantial knowledge about real estate, contracts, and property rights to help our clients:

Landlord Services

  • Draft Rental Leases
  • Resolve landlord-tenant disputes
  • Evict irresponsible or nonpaying tenants
  • Collect from nonpaying tenants

Tenant Services

  • Demand landlord’s upkeep the property and make repairs
  • Defend against unjust evictions
  • Demand return of security deposits
  • Defend unjust charges against the tenant

Drafting Solid Leases for Property Owners

Both landlords and tenants can avoid potential problems by having a well-drafted contract that enumerates all the rental terms for countless situations. The Nevin Law Firm discusses the particulars of your property and its occupancy and constructs clear, detailed leases that cover all aspects of your rental agreement. When you present a lease to a prospective tenant, you will feel confident that you are absolutely in compliance with Tennessee law, such as the Tennessee Uniform Landlord Tenant Act, and that your rights are protected should a dispute arise.

Protecting Tenants’ Rights

Tennessee law specifies the usage, retention, and return of security deposits. If your landlord fails to follow these strict regulations, we can help you to collect what is due to you. Additionally, if a landlord is failing to upkeep the property, make repairs, or furnish necessary services, we can help you get the relief you need. We first pursue the most cost-effective route of demanding your rights from your landlord. If necessary, we will assertively defend your rights in court.

Resolving an Eviction

Eviction is disruptive to both the landlord and the tenant. The landlord must spend the time and money to replace tenants who fall behind on rent, and a displaced family must locate a new home under traumatic circumstances. With this scenario in mind, we help resolve disputes when eviction is undesirable. If you are a tenant who unfairly faces eviction, we can protect your right to remain in your home. If you are a landlord whose tenants are engaged in disruptive, illegal or damaging behavior, we can help you protect your property and your business.
