Being a landlord sometimes is not all it's cracked up to be. Being new to the game mistakes will be made and can be very costly if not handled correctly. After initial negotiations failed our case went to trial before the judge. This case was not a slam dunk by any means but Thankfully Ricks knowledge of the law and ability to change gears during the trial afforded us a favorable outcome.
