The FutureLaw Landlord Property Management Team brings a full array of legal skills and decades of experience in providing advice to landlords and property managers on a broad scope of property management and landlord-tenant issues, defending and resolving state and federal fair housing claims, and advising on labor and employment issues.

We believe that the proactive approach of establishing strong policies, procedures and forms at the outset is the best way to avoid legal problems down the road.  However, should questions or problems arise, our attorneys can help you address the issue all the way from the initial consultation, up to and including defending you against any claims for liability, and enforcing any and all rights and remedies you may have under any insurance policies.

FutureLaw Property Management Services include:

I. Flat-Fee Retainer for General Advice/ Hourly Billing

FutureLaw maintains relationships on a retainer basis with many of its property management clients for general consultation and advice on an ongoing basis.   This allows landlords to budget a fixed amount for their annual legal expenses.  The arrangement also permits our attorneys to proactively help landlords avoid problems to the maximum extent possible, and to effectively resolve issues should they arise.   Depending on a client’s needs and preferences, any or all of the above services, such as lease preparation or training, can be incorporated into the retainer relationship, with legal costs to be spread evenly throughout the year.  FutureLaw can also provide hourly rates upon request for representation.
