We Are Here to Help Landlords With Their Renters

Life is scary for a lot of people right now. Millions of Americans have lost their income almost overnight. Many fear they will not be able to pay their rent and that they’ll lose their place to live. That puts landlords in a tough spot too.

Rest easy knowing that there are a variety of solutions that can protect your property and your financial interests while being empathetic to your tenants.  

The employees and real estate provider attorneys of LegalShield want you to know that you are not alone. We are committed to remaining open and available to our business members throughout this difficult period, no matter how long it lasts.

Let’s start solving your challenges right now.

Understand Your Legal Rights

The first step in solving your rental and financial challenges is to understand your rights so you can take appropriate action.  

As a landlord, you are of course entitled to collect rent due under your lease agreements. That said, you may have a tenant or multiple tenants that simply cannot make their payment due to job loss or other Coronavirus complications.

What options do I have if tenants don’t pay rent because they lost their job or got sick?
Although I’d hate to do it, if I need to start eviction proceedings, how to I do it?
Are there temporary government moratoriums on evictions and foreclosures that affect my properties?

Because Landlord-Tenant Law is different in every state, there is no one size fits all answer to these questions. The good news is that LegalShield has a network of 39 provider law firms that cover the entire US and Canada. You can join today for as little as $39.00 per month and be on the phone with an attorney in 4 hours or less.

If you’d like quickly access general information related to the questions above, 
review our new landlords’ rights blog post.

Understand Your Legal Obligations

As you you know, tenants have rights too. Despite the current pandemic, you’re still obligated to follow the landlord-tenant laws in your state. Failure to do so can make a sticky situation worse.

First, read your lease agreements to refresh your memory about the terms and conditions contained within them.
Next, you should review the landlord-tenant laws in your state to better understand your obligations.
Finally, you should explore current government mandates and orders that could impact your options.

While the above tips may sound good, they can be difficult to execute if you’re not a lawyer and you’re stressed out. For starters, you can find more detailed legal information and advice in this article.

If you’d like an attorney familiar the Landlord-Tenant laws in your state to review your leases and provide advice and even call your tenants or write a letter on your behalf, a small business plan from LegalShield covers these critical tasks. For the cost of one business lunch, you can get the legal support you need.

Real, effective legal assistance is just a phone call away.

Prevent Problems by Being Proactive

We are in uncharted territory. Not only may you be facing the prospect of instigating eviction or defaulting on your mortgage, there are health and safety issues to grapple with too.

Do I need to do anything special to make sure my tenants are safe?
I have a tenant that has tested positive for Covid-19, what actions should I take?
How do I handle extra expenses for virus related cleaning services?
Are there notices I should be proactively sending to tenants?
This situation is still pretty new, what should I be preparing for a month or two from now?  
How should I handle my own financial crunch if renters start missing payments?

If you’d rather not guess and stress, we strongly encourage you to give us a call. Our provider attorneys can quickly assess your situation based on the laws in your state and the terms of your lease, discuss your options and either guide your next steps or take action on your behalf. LegalShield provider attorneys can provide peace of mind and get you moving forward.

As we said at the top, we’re here for you. Let us help you.
