A lease is an agreement (either written or oral) between the landlord and the tenant for the right to occupy, possess and enjoy a piece of property for a period of time, subject to certain restrictions. Leases can be residential or commercial, and both are very different creatures and tenants have different rights and protections under each one.

Residential Leases

You have to be proactive to protect your rights in a lease agreement. In a residential lease your home may be at stake. Even though it is often very difficult to involve a lawyer in such a dispute because the money at stake may not justify paying a lawyer to go to court, the experienced Georgia landlord/tenant lawyers at Meyer & Bardill may be able to help. We try to work out flexiblerepresentation arrangements and fees to help you from losing your home.

It is extremely important that you guard your rights before problems arise. This website contains information that can help you understand your rights and responsibilities under the law. The most important thing for you to do is to read your lease carefully and understand what it says. Most questions about leases will be answered in the lease agreement itself.

If you believe your rights are being violated, we may be able to help you. If you have been wrongfully evicted or if you have been injured as the result of a landlord's negligence, contact the experienced Georgia landlord/tenant lawyers at Meyer & Bardill to discuss how we can help you protect your rights.

Commercial Leases

In commercial leases, the stakes can be very high. As a tenant, you may be facing eviction or a problem with your leased property that can haunt you for years or even destroy your business. In such a case, you need to contact an experienced Georgia landlord/tenant lawyer such as C. Lawrence Meyer. We have years of experience helping individuals and small businesses protect their rights under their lease. Contact us for a free consultation to see how we can help you.
