Landlord/Tenant and Real Estate

Kansas City Real Estate Lawyer

Over 38 Years of Experience in Real Estate and Landlord/Tenant Disputes apartment

At my law office, J. Russell Ford, Attorney at Law, P.C., I have over 40 years of experience representing individuals throughout Jackson County and the surrounding area, including residential landlords and tenants, as well and individuals involved in real estate transactions. I will take the time necessary to sit down with you, listen carefully to all your questions and concerns, giving you the information you need to make informed decisions about how to proceed. My goal is always of helping you recover compensation for damages done to you. Contact my office or call me at 816-399-5211 to arrange a half-hour consultation.

Helping Landlords and Tenants

I work closely with residential landlords, preparing and filing the paperwork necessary to successfully complete evictions. I also draft demand letters, warning letters and termination of tenancy letters. Though most of the landlords I work with own residential property, I also provide commercial real estate services.

I negotiate, review and prepare residential leases, and handle any litigation that may arise out of a lease, including the defense of claims involving the breach of a warranty of habitability or alleging a failure to repair.

In addition to my work with landlords and property owners, I also represent residential tenants in eviction actions, as well as other claims, such as those alleging breach of contract for excess damage to an apartment or other leased property.

Working With Buyers and Sellers

I work with buyers and sellers at all stages of a residential real estate transaction, from the negotiation of terms to the closing. I review and prepare all documents required to successfully complete the sale or purchase of real property, including buy-sell agreements, deeds, mortgages, promissory notes and other financing instruments. A significant portion of my real estate clients are residential landlords, who often need help cleaning up the titles on rental property.

I also represent either side in disputes involving homeowners or condo owners, including those that involve associations.

To schedule a half-hour consultation to discuss your landlord/tenant or real estate issues, contact me or call me at 816-399-5211 . My offices are a half block south of the round Federal Courthouse at 9th and Oak in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. I meet with clients between 8:30am and 5:30pm, Monday through Friday. Weekend and evening appointments are available upon request.
