The attorneys at Knott Ebelini Hart handle both residential and commercial landlord-tenant disputes and our clients include both landlords and tenants.
In addition to eviction proceedings, we routinely advise our clients regarding security deposit disputes, lease issues, access to premises issues, and questions arising under the Florida Fair Housing Act.
