Management companies cannot evaluate “eviction fee” price without factoring into consideration legal bills for routine legal advice. Our clients regularly seek eviction related and a wide range of other general property management legal advice from THS. The cost for this needed and critical legal advice is easy to calculate. The cost is $0.00.
Many law Firms have an extra charge for providing basic legal advice to their clients. This means that when a client calls the attorney with legal questions about a particular eviction case or has general questions about the legal process, the attorney charges on an hourly basis, resulting in thousands of dollars per year in attorneys fees. At Tschetter Hamrick Sulzer we consider this service as being a part of the overall Eviction fee.
We realize that if a client hesitates in calling the attorneys with a legal question because they did not want to incur hourly charged legal fees, it could lead to serious legal ramifications for the client. Therefore, we encourage our clients to call us with any legal questions so that they can make the right decision is dealing with problem situations.
The amount of attorney time spent on these situations is not insubstantial. While some situations can be handled in 15 minutes or less, many situations require considerably more attorney time. We are the only Firm that has developed a comprehensive “situation database” to respond to our clients’ every need for critical and timely advice. We have eight full time attorneys and eight legal assistants to make sure that our clients get answers to their questions quickly. We employ a full time “situation manager” whose only job is to coordinate and facilitate the handling of our clients’ issues and need for timely legal advice. All calls and inquiries are promptly handled.
Drafting Eviction Notices
Drafting rent notices is straightforward. Compliance notices can be a little tricky. We urge our clients to involve us before serving compliance notices. When we get involved, we frequently draft compliance notices for clients at no extra charge. This increases the client’s chances of success in court. This also allows us to prepare in advance for a trial—which is crucial when the stakes are high on complicated and involved compliance cases.
Non Eviction Legal Advice
Legal issues often arise that are not directly related to evictions. These include neighbor disputes, problems with vendors, lease issues, etc. While other law Firms charge on an hourly basis to handle these non-eviction matters, we do not. As a further courtesy and service to our clients, we regularly answer personal legal questions for any person that works for a Firm client from maintenance technician to vice president. Our theory is that we provide an overall service to our clients, and this type of advice is included in the basic eviction fee. Only complicated, on-going matters are charged on an hourly basis. This is a value-added service that we have been providing for years.
Exceptional value and reasonably priced service contributes to the continued growth of our client base and is a key factor for management companies who keep a close eye on overhead cost versus value received.
