Real Estate Law

Real estate law is one of the most prominent areas of the law that most people and businesses take part in. When it comes to real estate law, there are many state-specific laws and regulations that individuals in Michigan must be aware of when conducting real estate transitions, whether residential or commercial. These are regulations and rights that failure to understand can result in turning great deals into litigation nightmares.

Real estate agents specifically are tasked with finding great properties and deals for buyers, but they do not provide legal advice – this is where an experienced legal attorney would step in and provide advice on navigating real estate deals and making for the best possible outcome for their client. Real estate transactions are often huge undertakings, and it’s imperative that buyers and sellers have a full understanding of Michigan’s real estate legal landscape when becoming involved in these transactions, and having an experienced legal team by your side when taking part in these transactions.

Landlord and Tenant Issues

Hertz Schram has extensive experience in advising clients on dispute resolutions between landlords and tenants. Disputes between landlords and tenants can arise for a variety of reasons which can involve evictions, failure to pay rent, property damage, or other issues. For landlords to remove tenants from their properties, they must follow eviction proceedings which is called a Summary Proceeding, which is a process that seeks to return property rental to the person legally entitles to its possession. Landlords are not permitted to forcibly evict tenants, and these prohibited activities can include changing locks, discontinuing utilities, and other means of attempting to evict a tenant. Landlords in this position will often have to seek out legal council in order to resole these disputes.
Hertz Schram can advise landlords on these issues and has represented countless real estate investor and landlords regarding tenant disputes, helping to best represent landlords during difficult periods with tenants. Especially when tenants must be evicted and orders of eviction must be processed, these are often difficult times for landlords, and expert guidance is needed to make for the best possible outcomes.
