The Bay Area's Preeminent
REAL ESTATE & LANDLORD LAWYERS
Bornstein Law aggressively represents, counsels, and advocates on behalf of rental property owners to power through the obstacles they face in achieving their real estate goals.
The voice for owner rights.
It seems that lawmakers and regulators got together to protect the rights of tenants, but no concerted effort was made to protect good landlords from bad tenants. That's the domain of Bornstein Law. Whether you find your rental business mired in a lease dispute, encounter problematic tenants, or face a myriad of other issues that impact housing providers, you can rely on proper counsel to manage legal relationships, avoid or resolve conflict, and cauterize risk.
