Landlord tenant law

Arlington Landlord-Tenant Law Attorneys 

Guiding Clients Throughout Virginia & Washington, D.C. 

Although owning a property and renting it out can be a smart way to earn passive income, residential and commercial tenancies can turn ugly quickly. Disagreements can happen over late rent and serious liability issues can arise when it comes to property maintenance or a tenant’s eviction rights.

Washington, D.C. in particular has very specific statuary provisions regarding tenancies. In the residential context, violations of D.C.’s landlord tenant law could expose landlords to serious liability. For example, did you know that upon their termination (with a few limited exceptions), all leases in D.C. automatically convert to month-to-month leases? 

To protect your interests, you need to secure the services of a seasoned attorney who knows and understands this area of the law. For help with these matters, turn to our esteemed legal team at The Bhatia Law Firm, P.C. to discuss your landlord-tenant situation.
