Lease Drafting:

A good start to any landlord/tenant relationship is to have a
well drafted lease that outlines the agreement between the
parties. Attorney Peter V. Tekippe has negotiated both
residential and commercial leases for both landlords and
tenants. A well drafted lease can save time and money
when disputes arise.


Landlord's Rights

As a landlord you are frustrated when a tenant falls behind
on the rent. You have done nothing wrong yet your tenant
is either refusing or unable to pay you the rent that is due.
Attorney Tekippe understands your frustration and will
help you evict your delinquent tenant. Whether you are new
to owning rental property in Massachusetts or an
experienced landlord,the landlord/tenant laws in the
Commonwealth of Massachusetts are technical and strictly
construed against the Landlord. One misstep and you will
have to start the entire process over again. You need an
experienced landlord/tenant practitioner to ensure that the
process is handled efficiently and correctly.

The primary goal in any landlord/tenant matter is removing
the delinquent tenant as quickly as possible, allowing you
to re-rent the property in a timely manner.

Attorney Tekippe is also well versed in the delay tactics
employed by many tenants and is ready to subvert them.

Tenant's Rights

As a tenant you are equally frustrated when you have paid
your rent on time but your landlord has failed to provide
services as outlined in a written lease and/or maintains a
property that does not comply with the state sanitary code.

Before you withhold rent or take any other action against
your landlord you need to speak with Attorney Peter
Tekippe to discuss your rights. In many cases, in addition
to monetary damages, you may be entitled to attorney's fees
and costs.
