A quick response is critical in situations involving illegal activities, disturbances, or other issues that interfere with the operation and success of your properties.
DOCUMENT REVIEW & DRAFTING
Barhydtlaw can assist in a review of your current lease and supporting documents. Our goal is to protect the interests of your apartment community through a complete review of all documents used in the operation and leasing of the property. This review process includes drafting any necessary changes to your lease, riders, or addenda.

At Barhydtlaw, we have the experience and administrative support to ensure that clients’ legal matters are resolved quickly and cost-effectively. Clients simply email [or fax] the required documentation to our office, and we can prepare and file your case typically within 24 hours. Court dates, subject to availability and court rules, are usually scheduled within 7 to 10 days thereafter. Our fee structure is designed on a flat-rate basis so that clients can anticipate and budget for necessary legal expenses. We can also assist with other litigation matters, such as fair housing matters, vendor disputes, small claims cases, and security deposit cases.
EMERGING LEGAL ISSUES CONFRONTING THE APARTMENT INDUSTRY
We are committed to providing our clients with legal support on emerging issues and trends in the industry, such as responding to negative internet rating service reviews, designating smoke-free apartments, prohibiting or limiting short-term rentals, and advising on Federal, State, and local legislation, such as licensing and inspection ordinances, implementing FCC satellite dish installation and use rules, and local landlord-tenant ordinances.
Our firm is available to hold on-site training regarding any legal issue that impacts your apartment community. Sessions will be tailored to your individual needs and targeted toward your specific goals.
