Skillful Georgia lawyers provide strong advice and advocacy to landlords
While not generally recognized by the legal community as an area of practice, “Apartment Management Law” refers to a broad spectrum of state and federal standards that govern the management operations of apartment communities. At Fowler, Hein, Cheatwood & Williams, P.A., in Atlanta, we sometimes refer to it as “Apartment Law.” Our firm has extensive experience representing and protecting the business interests of our clients. Regardless of whether your concern relates to one property or a group of multifamily units, we provide sound legal strategies tailored to your particular needs.
Dedicated firm assists with evictions, code compliance and FHA claim defense
By focusing on the specific challenges that face owners and manger of residential rental properties, our lawyers have deep insight regarding critical aspects of landlord-tenant law. This background benefits the individuals and businesses we serve through:
- Representation — Landlords are often targets for lawsuits and other complaints associated with eviction procedure, premises liability claims, the Fair Housing Act and disputes over interpretation of lease provisions. As we’ve handled and provided counsel on so many of these cases in Georgia and other Southeastern states, our firm spots legal and practical options that others might overlook. When assisting apartment owners with code compliance, potential hazards and other methods of avoiding unnecessary liability, we offer clear, practical advice. During litigation arising from housing discrimination complaints, on-site injuries, residential dispossession and eviction of tenants claiming bankruptcy, we vigorously pursue a successful outcome.
- Publications — The Georgia Apartment Law Book (Robert P. Hein, 2009, published online by the Georgia Apartment Association) contains over 130 articles discussing the laws applicable to owning and running a multifamily community in Georgia. The articles cover topics such as affordable housing programs, housing discrimination, marketing and advertising, credit screening, leases, landlord-tenant laws, dispossessory cases (evictions), collection and credit, employment, environmental, life safety and premises liability, insurance and taxes, utilities, and real estate licensing.
- Training and seminars — As a part of our commitment to keep members of the apartment industry apprised of relevant legal standards, our attorneys conduct corporate training and seminars for landlords, property companies and professional organizations.
No matter what the particular challenge entails, we help our clients understand their rights and responsibilities. From there, our firm capably guides them as they deal with their residents and respond to their concerns. In each forum and situation, our boutique firm exhibits the highest levels of skill, professionalism and personal attention.
