One of Attorney Barbara Craig’s areas of specialization is landlord-tenant law
Landlord-tenant law is the part of the law that defines the rights and duties of both landlords and tenants. It includes aspects of both real property (real estate) law, and contract law.
In general, California state law, plus the laws of many municipalities in California, provide powerful protections for the rights of both tenants and landlords. As with many areas of California law, the landlord-tenant provisions of the California Code of Civil Procedure can be complex and sometimes difficult to understand and follow.
Failure to abide by applicable state and local law can result in the loss of protections afforded under the law for both tenants and landlords. Additionally, landlords may be exposed to the risk of fines and other penalties levied for non-compliance with certain provisions, particularly those pertaining to unlawful detainer (eviction) proceedings against tenants.
Attorney Barbara Craig works with both tenants and landlords to help them navigate the legal landscape and advocates for their respective rights and interests. If you are a landlord or tenant that has questions or concerns about your rights and responsibilities, contact Landlord-Tenant Law Attorney Barbara Craig to schedule a consultation.
