The firm provides a variety of services for landlords, including:
- Preparation of lease agreements, including leases with options to purchase.
- Pre-lease tenant screening.
- Filing eviction actions and representing property owners at eviction hearings.
- Assisting property owners when tenants deposit rent with the clerk of courts.
Tenants have a lot of advantages, from pro-tenant laws to free legal help. Browse our Blog to see how this area of litigation is constantly changing; tenants and their attorneys are dreaming up new tricks all the time, and in the fast-paced environment of eviction court, going it alone could mean the difference between getting your property back today, having your case dismissed or even being sued yourself.
It doesn’t have to be a one-sided battle.
Jonathan A. Veley not only represents landowners – he owns and maintains his own rental properties and understands firsthand the challenges property owners face. We are typically representing property owners in eviction court every session (court is held every two weeks), and we regularly update our policies, forms and procedures in light of the changing legal landscape.
In contested matters, our focus is in resolving conflict. The firm has a positive working relationship with Southeastern Ohio Legal Services (Legal Aid), and many of our cases are resolved by agreed entries rather than judgments after contested hearings.
We know you want your property back as quickly and as cheaply as possible, so we handle the eviction portion of your case on a flat fee basis. Our fee agreement for eviction matters is here.
