Did you know that you can face significant financial consequences from denying a residential application for occupancy from a potential tenant due to their participation in social welfare benefits? It’s true. Even if you are not aware of the law, you can still be held liable to pay the potential tenant a significant amount of damages just for denying their application. Consultation with attorneys at Smythe & Jones may cost several hundred dollars for an hour but that simple consultation will save you tens of thousands in litigation costs. We offer a minimum $1,500 retainer for clients that just need to consult on occasion for any business matter that they may have arisen. When the consultation is complete, any additional funds remaining in your retainer are returned to you upon request after being applied to the approved consultation charges following the last billing cycle.
