Landlords and Property Management

Although property owners generally have the lion's share of rights in a landlord-tenant relationship, poor property management policies or impulsive decisions made without the benefit of legal counsel can quickly tip that balance in favor of the tenant.

The attorneys at Benckendorf & Benckendorf, P.C., advise landlords and provide an array of property management services for residential and commercial holdings of all types. To discuss your specific situation with a real estate lawyer, call any of our central Illinois office locations directly or contact us online.
