Landlord Tenant

Landlord-Tenant law concerns the rental of commercial and residential property. Landlords who find themselves with a tenant who will not pay rent, or otherwise comply with the terms of their lease, can be placed in a precarious financial situation. Their rights and remedies are found in the Virgin Islands landlord-tenant law which provides for the forcible entry, detainer and restitution of real property and a number of other federal and territorial laws.

Successful advocates for a landlord understand the multiplicity of issues that can arise when initiating and prosecuting an eviction. In particular, landlord’s counsel needs to be particularly attuned to the many procedural safeguards that exist in the law for tenants. In the end, a landlord who is forced to evict a tenant wants to do so quickly, with as little expense as possible.
