Apartment Management Law & Residential Landlord Attorneys

Ensuring compliance with federal, state and local regulations

As government agencies adopt more regulations regarding the operation of apartment communities, it becomes ever more important that management companies and residential landlords set up correct policies and procedures from the outset. The attorneys at Fowler, Hein, Cheatwood & Williams, P.A. have extensive experience in protecting the business interests of our apartment owner, management and landlord clients by creating sound strategies and tools — including contracts and formal agreements — that meet many goals, yet stay within regulatory compliance.

The growing demand for residential rental units coupled with the growing number of governmental regulations has put a strain on the day-to-day operation of apartment complexes. It is our goal to help our clients realize an improved return on investment and opportunities for future growth through our guidance. To that end, we represent and counsel landlords and apartment managers in all phases of apartment law, including:

  • Formulating strategies for good management litigation decisions
  • Creating and revising leases and forms
  • Providing protocol for maintenance and repair dispute resolution
  • Addressing permissible resident conduct and rules
  • Ensuring compliance with laws applicable to security deposits and background checks
  • Assisting with lease terminations
  • Advising on rental collection procedures
  • Reviewing and advising on rental qualification procedures
  • Dispossessory filings

Representation when you need it

In many cases, our clients view us as an extension of their in-house counsel, but with the added benefit of a broader perspective. Our input is often most valuable when clients face litigation or are in need of dispute resolution assistance. While we are prepared to take an issue as far as necessary to protect the interest of our property owners and managers, we strive to find amicable resolutions that are less costly and maintain good community relationships. We offer legal representation in the areas of:

  • Mediation and arbitration
  • Jury and bench trials
  • Appeals and post-judgment options
