Maryland Attorney Skilled in Landlord-Tenant Matters

Columbia lawyer assists in commercial and residential leasing concerns

As a property owner or renter, you should be able to feel secure that your lease agreement protects your interests and that you have remedies when disputes arise. Situated in Columbia, The Totten Law Firm, LLC. helps commercial and residential landlords and tenants statewide in drafting and negotiating leases and other rental agreements and renewals. I also help clients enforce their rights, whether you are a landlord seeking to collect rent or a tenant fighting against termination of a tenancy. I take pride in efficiently resolving all types of property lease problems with a view to obtaining the most favorable results for my clients.

Experienced legal advocate offers effective leasing solutions for your property

Whether you are a landlord or tenant, I can represent you in forming a lease arrangement that serves your business or residential needs and that is workable and enforceable. I draft clear, detailed agreements or review and amend prepared ones to ensure compliance with Maryland law. With my assistance, you can be confident that you have taken the necessary steps to safeguard your interests as a property owner or tenant.

Determined real estate attorney assists with landlord-tenant dispute resolution

I handle disputes over every aspect of a rental relationship, from disagreements over lease interpretation to battles over rent or security deposits. My firm provides:

  • Representation of landlords — Whether you are commercial or residential property owners, I can assist you in conflicts with tenants over such issues as unpaid rent, lease termination, property damage and misuse of premises.  If dispute resolution is unsuccessful, I can pursue eviction, money damages and other litigation remedies.
  • Representation of tenants — I represent your interests as a tenant when a landlord fails to honor the terms of the lease or comply with state or local housing regulations. If a landlord wrongfully withholds a security deposit, I demand the prompt return of the owed amount along with any interest as required by state law. I also defend tenants against evictions and other wrongful acts by landlords.

I understand that resolving disputes can be an urgent matter for landlords and tenants, particularly where a party’s safety and security or the profitability of their business is at stake. I aggressively pursue each client’s ideal outcome in or out of court, through litigation or alternative methods of resolution such as demand letters, negotiation and mediation.
