Best Practices for Communicating Effectively In A Landlord-Tenant Case

1h 15m

Created on September 23, 2018




In representing landlords or tenants, communication is a key component in representing the client. Although the necessity of good communication is obvious, failing to pay attention to it can cost you as a practitioner. Furthermore, practitioners should not wait until trial to implement good communication techniques and instead should start at the client intake. Additionally, best practices of communication dictate that practitioners should extend effective communication techniques to adversaries and the court (and court personnel) as well.

This course will provide a general overview of communication between attorneys, attorney-client and, attorney-court in a landlord-tenant setting starting with the negotiation of the lease agreement, to eviction proceedings and even to post-judgment matters. Your presenter, Kenneth W. Biedzynski, Esq., will concentrate on these issues and briefly discuss legal and non-legal considerations that practitioners in this field should keep in mind. He will also discuss some of the challenges that commonly face practitioners and offer suggestions as to how to respond to them.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss the art of communication in a landlord-tenant case emphasizing best practices for communicating with the client, an adversary, the court, and, court personnel
  2. Identify best practices for communication with a client and adversary when negotiating a residential or commercial lease agreement
