Landlord/Tenant Issues

The relationship between landlords and tenants can be a very difficult one to navigate if you're unfamiliar with the laws regulating it. This is especially true if the relationship has ended in an attempted eviction. Each county in Michigan has a different set of rules and procedures with regard to eviction proceedings. Kyrsten Niemiec has been handling evictions and all other landlord-tenant or lease related issues in Monroe County for nearly a decade. Her experience in the area can take the weight off of your shoulders and give you reassurance. From the issuance of notice to quit or demand for possession, to the filing of complaint, all the way through obtaining a judgment and, if need be, a writ and order of eviction, she will be there to get it all done and walk you through the process.

Guiding You Through A Complicated Process

The eviction procedure that is required by law depends upon the type of property owned and the relief being sought. The process can be confusing and complicated. Additionally, the court's clerk has very specific rules about filing that are difficult for the lay-person to comply with. Ms. Niemiec can handle it for you from beginning to end. Once a judgment is obtained and the tenant has vacated the premises, she can help you collect what is owed to you as well.

Conversely, if you are a tenant and are being evicted, she can help you understand the claims against you, analyze whether you have a defense and potentially help you keep your home.

A Closer Look At Your Lease

Finally, the lease is a very important document that lays out the rights, responsibilities and liabilities of both the landlord and the tenant. Many people think that a verbal agreement for the lease of residential property is sufficient to protect their interests. While a verbal agreement is legal, it is also very unsafe. Neither party's rights are adequately protected without a lease to detail each party's responsibilities and obligations in relation to the property. She can draft a lease specific to your situation, whether you own one property or an entire apartment complex. If you are a tenant, Ms. Niemiec can review your lease and make sure you are protected.
