Bornstein & Bornstein: Legal Victory - Landlord/Tenant Unlawful Detainer Lawsuit

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Bornstein & Bornstein, a boutique real estate law firm with offices in San Francisco and Oakland, continues its outstanding record of success in representing real estate investors by securing a trial victory in a heated landlord/tenant dispute.

Before Judge Tsenin of the San Francisco Superior Court, Daniel Bornstein conducted a trial seeking the removal of all occupants from the premises at issue due to a violation of the lease covenant prohibiting subletting without owner's prior written consent of the owner.

The facts of the case were as follows: Plaintiff entered into a written agreement with the defendant in 1990, approximately 22 years ago. Defendant, without written consent, had sublet the premises to eight other individuals. Defendant argued that the landlord had either knowingly permitted the subletting to occur or waived his right to enforce the subletting provision. On behalf of the landlord, Daniel Bornstein successfully rebutted the claims raised by the defendant and argued that no such authorization was granted and/or waived. Judge Tsenin quickly confirmed plaintiff's legal argument and entered judgment in favor of Bornstein's client. After many years of feeling victimized by the defendant's conduct, Bornstein's client finally recovered control over his San Francisco Rent Controlled Unit. Once again, The Law Office of Bornstein & Bornstein successfully accomplished the goal set by its client, and through the use of the litigation process, preserved a client's real estate investment.

Whether you face civil litigation, unlawful detainer disputes and/or broker/agent claims, Bornstein & Bornstein has the resources available to manage your disputes to successful resolution – either through negotiated settlement or, if necessary, trial.
