Landlord-Tenant Matters

Whether you need to draft a watertight lease agreement or to enforce it, we can help.

Cacace, Tusch & Santagata handles the full range of landlord-tenant issues, both commercial and residential, from the inception of a lease agreement through termination and eviction. Our services include commercial and residential leases, regulatory compliance, including health department and lead paint issues, compliance with condominium association regulations, and evictions, collection of back rent and other related litigation.

Based in Stamford, CT, Cacace, Tusch & Santagata also has unique experience dealing with leasing and regulatory processes relating to communications sites, including telecommunication facilities, antenna towers, rooftop sites, and satellite communications.

Are you negotiating a lease agreement?

Cacace, Tusch & Santagata has decades of real estate experience drafting commercial and residential leases. If you are establishing a new tenancy, call us at (203) 327-2000. Form residential leases do not provide the protections required by most landlords.  Commercial leases are complex documents that will define an important and financially impactful relationship. Let our firm make sure your interests are protected.

Are you dealing with a telecommunications or broadcast lease?

There are many unique aspects of telecommunications law and broadcast leases, from the need to accommodate multiple carriers using potentially conflicting RF equipment on the same structure, to accounting for co-location revenue in a fashion that is financially reasonable for all parties.

Cacace, Tusch & Santagata has over 20 years experience in handling lease agreements and licenses for telecom carriers, property owners that lease to broadcast sites, and developers that specialize in broadcast facilities. We can help with both ground space and room on existing structures to accommodate antennas, satellite equipment, and related ground equipment. We work with clients to establish stealth sites like flagpoles, church steeples, and other camouflaged facilities.

Do you need representation in an eviction?

The eviction process in Connecticut is very precise.  Cacace, Tusch & Santagata has been representing both landlords and tenants in this area since the founding of the firm in 1982. We can guide landlords through the eviction process quickly and efficiently. If you are defending yourself from an eviction, we know the burdens Connecticut law places on landlords – from following correct summary process procedures, to standards imposed on the handling of security deposits.

Are you a landlord trying to collect rental arrearages?

Cacace, Tusch & Santagata can help commercial and residential landlords approach collection scenarios from an objective business perspective. If pursuit of a rental arrearage is warranted, our knowledge of prejudgment asset attachment proceedings may help make the obligation more collectable, and any judgment easier to satisfy.

Do you need help addressing regulatory issues that affect your rental property?

Municipal building codes and health standards can set requirements for conditions that must be maintained at residential rental properties. These requirements can also serve as defenses for landlords who are initiating legal proceedings to evict tenants or collect back rent.

If you are a landlord facing a code violation, call Cacace, Tusch & Santagata. We have the experience to handle the municipal agencies responsible for code enforcement, and to address the fallout that a violation may cause with your tenant.
