Evictions & Other Landlord Tenant Disputes

“Eviction Without the Friction is our Jurisdiction”

We represent both landlords and tenants in residential and commercial eviction cases.

Services We Provide to Landlords/Property Owners:

  • Evictions for Non-Payment
  • Evictions for Breach of Lease
  • Actions for Damages for Unpaid Rent
  • Ejectments
  • Unlawful Detainers
  • Notice to Tenants

Florida residential landlords must follow the judicial eviction process to legally evict a tenant from leased property. Trying to evict a tenant by extralegal means such as changing locks, turning off utilities, threatening the tenant or engaging in any other act designed to force the tenant to leave, is illegal and may subject the landlord to civil damages to the tenant.

Other Landlord Tenant Disputes

If you are involved in a rental agreement or lease you need to be aware that both landlords and tenants have rights and duties under Florida law. The landlord/tenant relationship is a legal contract controlled by your lease.

We offer a variety of services to landlords purchasing their first rental property or to those having difficulties with their tenants.

Services We Provide to Tenants/Property Occupants:

  • Defense of Evictions for Non-Payment
  • Defense of Evictions for Breach of Lease
  • Defense of Actions for Damages for Unpaid Rent
  • Ejectment Defense
  • Unlawful Detainer Defense
  • Notice to Landlords

Tenants, if you do not have an attorney, you risk being evicted and owing monetary damages, court costs, and attorney fees to your landlord.

Toxic Mold Exposure

Are you living with toxic mold such as Aspergillus or Penicillium?

If you are experiencing health issues or have personal property damage as a result of toxic mold, your landlord may be responsible and you may be entitled to compensation from your landlord.

If you believe you have been harmed by toxic mold exposure, please call us today.

Glowing Reviews From Our Clients

I signed a lease agreement thinking I was renting my dream home. After I moved in my dream quickly became a nightmare filled with mold, pests, unfinished repairs, and disorderly neighbors. Matt and Jordan quickly and aggressively came to my rescue. Not only were they able to get me out of my lease without penalty, they were also able to get me monetary compensation for my suffering!

I found Glachman & Brill while searching the internet for an attorney who would be willing to battle my homeowner's association. It was not easy to find an attorney who was interested, but Matt and Jordan jumped at the chance to help me. In just 3 months, they were able to hold the association accountable for its actions and obtained the exact result I desired. Money well spent.
