The costs landlords incur from professional tenants choosing not
to pay rent or destroying property often exceed the legal fees
required to fix the problem.
Landlord Defense Group charges a reasonable fee tailored to your
specific needs as a landlord. All fees are discussed openly up
front, and we understand that some landlords are just breaking into
the business or have substantial funds tied up in maintaining
properties. We work with our clients based on their individual
budget, developing payment plans based on flat fees, percentage of
profits or a combination of both, depending on the nature of the
work and your personal preference. We know many landlords are
concerned that legal representation fees may become unmanageable,
but we are committed to working out a financial agreement suitable
for everyone involved.
