RESIDENTIAL, COMMERCIAL LEASES OR RENTAL AGREEMENTS
When drafting residential or commercial leases or rental agreements, make sure to exempt unlawful detainer and eviction related issues from any mandatory mediation or arbitration provisions. Not doing so can forfeit your right to a speedy resolution of your dispute. A thoughtful review of your lease contract in advance can help spot and clean up such weaknesses and put you in the driver’s seat in any dispute. Issue spotting is a money saver!
