Why You May Need an Expert Legal
Witness for Property Management Cases
Dealing with residential property management is challenging, and it can be even more of a challenge if you find yourself in the middle of a court case. With the help of an expert witness, you can present the evidence needed for your case to the expert legal witness. Whether it’s residential or commercial, there are many times when an expert witness may be helpful. Here are some examples of instances where these professionals can help you with a property management-related issue.
If a tenant claims that their property was not cared for, you should request the help of a residential management expert witness who can prove that you practiced reasonable standards of care.
Disputes between commercial property tenants and owners are common, and a witness can step in to provide their expertise and advice in court.
A tenant may sue for negligence in the event of an injury. An expert witness can help you prove that you did everything possible to prevent these injuries from occurring on your property.
Some tenants may try to countersue if you charge them for damage to the property. An expert will help present evidence to the court that the damage was in fact caused by the tenant, and therefore, repair costs may legally come out of their deposit.
Whether it’s a lawsuit over an injury or a claim either for or against a managed property, please consider hiring Owen Ahearn as your Expert Legal Witness.
