Whether you are a tenant or a landlord, when you enter into a lease agreement for a piece of real estate in Los Angeles, West Hollywood or Santa Monica, you are entering into a binding legal contract.

Callon and the team at MJC Law are here to represent both landlords and tenants in all aspects of tenant and landlord law.

Aggressive Representation for Landlords and Tenants in Unlawful Detainer Lawsuits

In a lease, both the landlord and the tenant have rights as well as responsibilities. Sometimes, if those responsibilities are not upheld on the tenant’s part, the landlord will file a complaint or petition with the local courts known as an Unlawful Detainer Action. This action can move quickly through the courts, so tenants need to get legal help if they are served with this action, especially if they feel that the lawsuit was filed unfairly. For landlords with delinquent tenants, having a lawyer on the team can help ensure the Unlawful Detainer Action is filed accurately and in a timely manner, allowing a swift resolution to the dispute.
