For most people, a real estate transaction is one of the biggest decisions they will ever face.  Whether you are buying or selling a home or commercial property, it is always prudent to have an attorney on your side to make sure the transaction goes smoothly and to ensure you are considering all the options available to you.  With the real estate experience you need, my office can make the difference between a successful real estate transaction and a costly mistake.  

At the Schindler Law Office, we are committed to helping people throughout Ohio with their real estate needs such as: 

  • Deed preparation
  • For Sale by Owner transactions
  • Residential closings
  • Residential offer letters and commercial letters of intent
  • Purchase and Sale agreements
  • Land Installment Contracts and Rent to Own contracts
  • Commercial lease negotiation, preparation and review

  • Homeowners Association and Condominium Law including drafting and review of By-Laws and restrictive covenants

An eviction, or forcible entry and detainer action (“FED”), is a judicial process by which a landlord may take back possession of real property which is occupied by others.  Eviction suits are brought in the city municipal court in which the property is located.  An owner’s primary objective is to obtain a writ of restitution for possession and a judgment against the tenant for monetary damages including attorney’s fees, costs and unpaid rent.  

Evictions are typically filed to remove tenants who have failed to pay rent, but are also filed to remove tenants after a foreclosure, or tenants causing damage to the property or violating terms of the written lease.  The steps in the eviction process include: 

  • Posting a three (3) day Notice to Vacate Premises on the tenant’s door
  • Filing the Forcible Entry and Detainer complaint with the Court
  • Attending the eviction hearing in Municipal Court
  • Receiving the Writ of Restitution and Judgment Entry for monetary damages
  • Posting notice on tenants door by the Sheriff specifying the move out date 
  • Supervising the move out and physically removing tenant if necessary by the Sheriff

Without competent legal representation, paperwork could be incomplete or filed improperly, prescribed statutory posting dates could be missed or the rights of tenants could be violated with the tenant remaining at the property rent free. 

Whether you own a single-family rental property or are a property manager managing hundreds of apartments, my office can improve your bottom line by navigating Ohio’s complicated eviction laws and alleviate the headaches associated with the eviction process.
