Top 3 Qualities to look for in Your Attorney

Watch Our Video

We believe your attorney should not speak in legalese

Finding an attorney who is a “real person” can be difficult. Many attorneys surround themselves almost exclusively with other attorneys and are accustomed to speaking in ivory tower legalese.  You should be able to connect with your attorney on a personal level, and he or she should speak to you in plain language that you can understand.  You will be working very closely with this person on issues that are very important to you. It is important that he or she be down-to-earth and someone that you connect with.

We believe your attorney should be accessible

The most common complaint that clients have of their attorneys is that the attorney is unreachable, does not communicate with them regularly, or does not promptly return your calls.  Your attorney should reach out to you about your case regularly and respond within 24 hours to calls and e-mails.  An open line of communication between you and your attorney is essential to building trust.

We believe your attorney should be realistic with you about costs and outcomes

Your attorney’s goal should not be to win at all costs.  Rather, it should be to achieve a favorable outcome for you as efficiently as possible.  It is important that your attorney set realistic expectations at the outset as to the costs you should expect, the concerns that the attorney has about the outcome of your case, and the length of time that you should expect your case to take.

Regardless of the nature of your case, we have an experienced attorney who will focus on your individual needs. Our team of attorneys works closely together, bringing each of their different fields of experience to bear in order to optimize our client care.

How To Perfect A Mechanics Lien

In this video, our Bettendorf HOA attorneys explain how a lease agreement obligates you, the tenant, and the landlord typically for a set period of time. Most often for residential leases, it is a year. Under most residential lease agreements, a landlord can’t raise the rent or change terms until the lease period ends, unless otherwise provided for in the lease.  A landlord can’t force you to move prior to your lease ending unless you violate your lease terms in some way or fail to pay rent. In that case, the landlord can follow the Iowa legal procedures to evict you. There are a number of exceptions under Iowa law to the general rule that tenants owe the rent payments for the entire term of a lease. These exceptions may allow you to legally move out and stop paying rent prior to the lease term ending.

How Do I Get My Landlord to Fix My Residence in Iowa

In this video, our Bettendorf HOA attorneys explain how withholding rent is a potential remedy, it is not recommended. As previously noted, failing to pay rent because your landlord doesn’t make repairs to your residence is dangerous and risky. The landlord may evict you, leaving you homeless. While you can take the case to court, you do not know whether a judge will agree that the problem with the residence was so bad that you had the right to withhold rent. However, it is illegal for a landlord to refuse to make necessary repairs or to shut off utilities because a tenant is simply behind on rent. Under the Iowa Landlord Tenant act, tenants can do a number of different things when repairs are necessary to keep the property safe and in habitable condition. Some remedies may not be an option for tenants who cannot afford to do repairs or aren’t able to find other housing options. Some steps a tenant may take when a landlord fails to make repairs include:

  • Making repairs yourself then deducting the cost from rent
  • Ending the lease and moving out
  • Call the housing inspector to make a complaint.

Tenant's Guide to Eviction in Iowa

In this video, our Bettendorf Landlord-Tenant Dispute attorneys explain how Iowa has adopted the Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant act which regulates the relationship between landlords and their tenants. Included within the act are rules and regulations regarding the process landlords need to take to evict a tenant. The two most common reasons for eviction are failure to pay rent and violation of the lease agreement by the tenant. There are different notice requirements depending on the reason for the eviction by the landlord.
