Residential Tenancies

Los Angeles Landlord-Tenant Attorney

Landlords. Tenants. The relationship between the two has historically often been somewhat adversarial. Whether the matter is related to a habitability issue or a failure to pay rent, disputes that erupt between residential landlords and tenants are not always black and white, nor are they always necessarily quickly resolved.

At Zakari Law, representing landlords and tenants throughout Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, Ventura, San Bernardino, Kern, and Riverside County, our work with clients is focused on resolving the issues that run through this often tumultuous relationship. Contact us today for insight in resolving your residential landlord-tenant conflict. We represent both landlords and tenants throughout Los Angeles the previously mentioned counties. We have successfully handled more than 5,000 unlawful detainer/eviction matters.

Our Services Related to Residential Tenancy

  • We aggressively litigate to trial if need be, unlawful detainer/eviction matters. Even though we have considerable litigation experience we will always attempt to resolve and settle a dispute prior to litigation in order to hold down our clients' costs, time and risk factors.
  • We have extensive experience and understanding of Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, Glendale and Beverly Hills rent control and/or just cause eviction ordinances rent control jurisdiction. And this experience and knowledge is of paramount value in litigating our clients' cases or settling them. The Rent Stabilization Ordinance, of Los Angeles, and West Hollywood have requirements that many other landlord-tenant firms might overlook. Zakari Law's familiarity with those ordinances can help you with success in your landlord-tenant dispute.
  • Habitability issues are the number one cause of friction between landlords and tenants in the Los Angeles County area, we offer both landlords and tenants a comprehensive and far reaching analysis of their respective positions. We apply our knowledge and analysis through the litigation or settlement processes. We have experience in prosecuting habitability lawsuits and defending them. Rely on our clarity and experience.
  • Our experience as "poacher and game keeper" allows us to put ourselves in our opponents mind set and gives us a better understanding of litigation strategies necessary to prevail at trial, or drive a favorable settlement for our clients.
  • Our work with the Los Angeles Housing Department has given us insight into problems faced by clients who have failed to follow the required guidelines, or when they are the subject of periodic inspections and fail to timely comply with city orders. We have appealed several orders of placing property into REAP (Rent Escrow Account Program) when the orders were premature and groundless, thereby, taking stress and anxiety off of our anxious landlords who were actually in substantial compliance with the laws.
  • We help clients be proactive by advising them of their requirements as landlords and tenants in light of periodic inspections under SCEP (Systematic Code Enforcement Program).
