Whether you're dealing with a landlord-tenant dispute or addressing a real estate concern in California, our San Francisco real estate attorneys are here to protect your rights.

Protecting The Rights Of Landlords

Housing code regulations in San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, and other California cities are complex and change frequently. Though these regulations are posted online, they are often difficult for a layperson to understand. In addition, these government websites provide little, if any, guidance to owners regarding the appeals process.

But as a property owner, you have rights. You should never assume that a code violation notice is final, that you cannot negotiate more time to comply or that you cannot negotiate the fines/penalties before speaking with an experienced attorney.
