Landlord Representation

When property owners find themselves in a position where their rental real estate investment is threatened, Tiedeman, Lynch, Kampfe, McVay & Respeliers offers the experience and expertise to ensure that the client’s opportunity for financial return is secure. With a combined 50 plus years of experience in landlord representation matters, the attorneys that handle Landlord Representation process hundreds of cases annually for residential and commercial landlords regarding failure to pay rent and problem tenants, as well as collection of overdue rent and property damage caused by tenants. We also file breach of lease and hold-over cases, and prepare the required notices before the suit for possession is filed. Finally, we see it through to the actual eviction of the tenant and assist in collection of amounts due. We deliver creative, expedient and cost-conscious solutions to difficult problems, all while focusing on our clients’ goals.

In addition to representation of landlords in connection with commercial and residential leases, we are one of the few firms in the Omaha metropolitan area to be experienced in the unique issues faced by owners and managers of mobile home communities.

Our services include:

  • Preparing eviction notices (3 day, 5 day, 14 day, or 30 day notices) to ensure compliance with local laws/regulations/low income programs.
  • Complaints for possession, wrongful detainers and other eviction proceedings.
  • Assistance with enforcement of lease terms and conditions, including issues of occupancy, and maintenance compliance.
