If you live in Worcester County or have a case in Worcester County and are seeking representation in the area of Probate and Family Law, Real Estate Law or Landlord and Tenant/Housing Law, your most sensible first step is to schedule a consultation with Attorney Lee. He will assess the situation and advise you on the best course of action.
Landlords: For collection and termination of tenancy cases, the first step is to call the office. Provide us with your contact information, the tenant contact information, the amount of monthly rent owed and when it is due, (or the grounds for termination), and we will prepare a Notice to Quit to be served upon the tenant. We will request fees to cover services rendered at that time. If the issue does not resolve or cure itself, we will file a complaint for you and proceed to court.
Tenants: If you have been served with a Notice to Quit, or are having problems with your landlord or apartment, call the office for a consultation. Bring with you your lease, tenancy agreement, statement of condition and any receipts the landlord has given you for your first or last month rent or security deposit. If your complaint concerns conditions in your apartment, please bring pictures.
