Resolving Landlord-Tenant Matters Quickly And Amicably
The landlord-tenant relationship confers benefits and advantages on both sides. However, when a tenant is unable or unwilling to pay rent as expected, those advantages can turn into problems.
Kelly, Symonds & Reed, LLC, regularly handles such cases efficiently and effectively. Usually, cases can be resolved reasonably and without animosity. Whether we handle matters inside the courtroom or at the negotiation table, you can rest assured knowing that we will have your best interests in mind.
A Landlord’s Right To Evict
In Missouri, a tenant can be removed in a fairly simple process if the tenant fails to pay rent. The terms “detainer action,” “unlawful detainer,” “rent in possession” and “eviction” can be used to refer to the process landlords go through when rent is not paid.
Notice must be given to the tenant. Once this happens, suit can then be filed within a short time and it may be only 60 days before the tenant is removed.
We seek money owed and in some cases additional remuneration in landlord-tenant disputes.
Our approach is to minimize the harm to both sides through negotiation. We treat all parties fairly and with respect, whether we are representing a landlord or a tenant, in a commercial or residential matter. We ensure that there is no mistake about what is owed and what has been paid.
