Shifting Attorney’s Fees and Costs in Landlord Tenant Litigation

American Apartment Owners Association - Mon, 04/16/2018 - 2:00pm

By Nate Bernstein, Esq., Managing Counsel- LA Real Estate Law Group

In any landlord v. tenant litigation scenario, the risk of an award of attorney’s fees and costs against you or your company  (as the landlord or property management company) is a serious financial risk if your opponent prevails on the merits in landlord tenant litigation.  The risk can be present at the level of “law and motion,” the level of “trial practice,” or the level of “appellate practice.”  Landlords and property management companies are generally not “judgment proof.” Their assets are visible on the boulevard and the public title records !!   If the risk is not insurable, landlords and tenants have financial exposure if a tenant prevails in an eviction case or other type of litigation case. If you are a plaintiff in a hotly contested case, you have the burden of proof, and if you lose on the merits before a judge or jury you have exposure for an award of attorney’s fees and costs against you, not to mention a potential lawsuit for “malicious prosecution.”  

What you thought was a $ 7,500.00 problem, can be a $ 25,000.00 exposure problem with a broadly drafted shifting attorney’s fees and costs clause or an ordinance that rewards a prevailing party.   The tendency is for the Courts to award “reasonable” attorney’s fees and costs to prevailing parties and their attorneys.   This policy encourages attorneys to take meritorious cases on behalf of tenants, and to take these cases to the “mat of trial,” and potentially on a reduced rate or contingency arrangement with the plan of prevailing and obtaining an award of attorney’s and costs in a post trial motion.

What is considered a “reasonable attorney’s fees” award is highly subjective, and the judge may have pre conceived notions and assumptions of what to order. Generally an hourly rate range of $ 150.00 per hour to $ 350.00 per hour is considered “reasonable” and within range of reason.    The time to chop down or reduce attorney’s fees is not at the hearing on a “Motion to Award Attorney’s Fees and Costs to Prevailing Party,” – the Court’s approach may be “Why didn’t you write a check for less and settle the case  ?”  

Just do the simple math.   The preparation for a jury trial can be a multiplier of 5 times the number hours of getting ready for a bench trial.  For example if a bench trial entails 5 hours of attorney preparation, a jury trial entails 25 hours of preparation time, and also additional court time to pick a jury, prepare and  and review jury instructions and special verdict forms with the judge.   Also, such costs such as deposition costs, court fees, jury fees, expert witness fees, and process server fees can be shifted to the losing party.

The financial risk of awarding attorney’s fees and costs against you can be present in your own lease agreement contract.  It is a hidden bomb in the basement of your building !! Most lease agreements have a clause that has language that reads something like,

“ ATTORNEY FEES:   In the event any form of legal action is brought in any Court or in an arbitration proceeding by any party to enforce any terms of this agreement or to recover possession of the premises, the prevailing party shall recover from the other party reasonable attorney fees and litigation costs.”

The risk of awarding attorney’s fees and costs against you is also present under local municipal ordinances, state contract law, and state labor laws.  For example, if you charge unlawful rent in a rent control jurisdiction, a court can award back  the excess rent, treble it, and can award attorney’s fees and costs against you. See, for example, Santa Monica Rent Control Charter Amendment Section 1809(a), entitled “CIVIL REMEDIES and 1806(f) (prevailing party in Wrongful Eviction action).”

To soften the financial  risk and blow of an award of attorney’s fees and costs against you in landlord tenant litigation, landlords and property management companies should evaluate THE FOLLOWING FACTORS :

  1.   Assess with your attorney the real exposure to an award of attorney’s fees and costs so you understand the true financial risk.  How long has the case been going on for ?? How much discovery has been done- have depositions been taken  ??  Has the tenant’s attorney prepared for a jury trial ?   How skilled is the tenant’s attorney ??  What have juries done in similar types of cases in LA County (i.e. pervasive bed bug cases where the landlord really did nothing about the issue) ?    Does the tenant have an expert witness  ?   Has the judge denied summary judgment against you ??    Is your eviction case impressively weak or not provable- is the property manager the only percipient witness ??   Will the jury and or judge be sympathetic to the tenant ??
  2.   Can you settle and pay the tenant far less than the bad outcome exposure and assess a “cash for keys” settlement ??
  3.    Is there a non-waivable municipal law, rent control ordinance, or state law that shifts attorney’s fees and costs to the prevailing party in this area of law, regardless of the language in your rental agreement- if so, try to settle the case based on that statutory exposure  ??
  4.    Can you insure certain risks with liability insurance ??  Insurance is an extremely valuable asset protection device, especially in breach of habitability cases.  Let the insurance carrier pay for the defense and indemnification to avoid the rainy day.
  5.  Is the tenant being represented by a reputable public interest law firm – will a judge or jury have a bias toward that type of law firm that is helping  the underdog tenant  ??

Take  ACTION to try to include some language in your rental agreement that may help you:

  1. Avoid using altogether  an attorneys fees/ costs shifting clause in your rental agreement for certain types of litigation risks.   Have a clause in plain English that says that “for any type of litigation between the parties, each party is to bear their own attorney’s fees and costs.”  This may take the sweet juice out of the tenant’s attorney pay day if the tenant is the prevailing party, and the attorney’s fees/ costs component of the claim is not addressed under a rent control ordinance or other state law.   If you prevail in an eviction lawsuit, you give up the right to collect attorney’s fees and costs, but the tenant may be “uncollectible” anyway or may file bankruptcy- so not having a prevailing party attorney’s fees clause may help you in the long run if you lose a case.
  2. Require that the tenant purchase renter’s insurance to insure certain kinds of risks.   This may encourage the tenant to target the insurance, rather than you as the “deep pocket.”
  3. Have a clause that requires mandatory mediation for any type of case that is not an eviction case.    If the tenant does not complete mediation in good faith prior to going to court, they waive any and all rights to get attorney’s fees and costs if they are the prevailing party.  This clause works in real estate purchase agreements involving consumers, and it may be enforceable against tenants.  Actively attend mediation or a court supervised settlement conference with the tenant to try to settle the issue.
  4. Use a mandatory alternative dispute resolution provision for arbitration of certain types of disputes.  Arbitration of the case takes the case away from a jury, and judges like this type of case because it takes the case off the trial calendar altogether.   Even if this type of clause is held to be “unenforceable” and against public policy – so what – it may distract from the litigation and encourage settlement.
  5. Set numerical limits for attorney’s fees and costs for prevailing parties for certain kinds of cases.   You can think out of the box, but for a jury trial, you can set a cap limit of $ 7,500.00 for attorney’s fees and costs for the prevailing party.    This type of clause protects both landlord and tenant from a big rainy day and a large attorney fee award against you.

Is Your Online Reputation Costing You Student Renters?

American Apartment Owners Association - Mon, 04/16/2018 - 8:28am

It’s no secret that reviews can heavily influence an individual’s final decision in choosing whether or not to purchase a product, go to a certain restaurant, or more importantly – choose where to live. With the help of the internet, other users’ reviews are much more readily available. There aren’t just word-of-mouth complaints and raves anymore – there are entire sites dedicated to creating a collection of reviews that ultimately help shape a product or location’s online reputation.

These reviews can go unnoticed by you, but for potential student renters – they may just be the deciding factor in whether or not to apply for a lease. Your online reputation can either put you at the top of student renters’ wish lists of housing to apply for – or put you at the bottom to be left forgotten in favor of housing with better online reputations.

If you’re advertising to student renters’ or looking to increase your pool of renters, consider if you’re online reputation is costing you student renters.

Look at what you are working with 

If you’re just getting started with utilizing your online reputation to attract student renters, you may want to consider looking at what your online reputation looks like when you’re first starting out. Search for reviews of your property by your target audience of student renters. This search may be startling if you end up seeing negative review after review full of negativity that you were previously unaware of from past tenants.

Don’t let negative reviews discourage you. Instead, use them as a tool to figure out what attracts students renters and what turns them off. It’s important to take in the feedback presented to you to see what didn’t work with student workers in the past and figure out what you can do in the future to prevent the same feedback and keep your property’s student renters satisfied.

Even if you think your online reputation is relatively positive when you are starting off, you still want to take any negative feedback into consideration. You may think the the other positive reviews will make up for the few negative reviews – but for potential student renters, those negative reviews are going to be the ones that make them second guess the positive ones.

Ask applicants or new tenants how they heard about you 

When meeting applicants or guiding new tenants through the leasing process, make an effort to ask where they heard about your property. By hearing how applicants and new tenants were made aware about housing opportunities for your property, you will get a sense of what advertising worked and possibly, how your online reputation has worked in or against your favor.

Many students look to social media sites like Facebook to ask other students what housing they have had throughout their college years. Students may or may not have included your property in a list of recommendations – but any mention is enough to put your property on a potential tenant’s radar.

Asking new applicants or tenants will allow you to get a better understanding of your online reputation and how it directly affects student renters. This gives you a much more clear understanding as it will give you an actual student renters’ perspective on your current online reputation.

Increase your own online presence

Take advantage of the internet and the opportunity to even have an online reputation by increasing your property’s online presence. College students lead busy lives. It is highly unlikely that they are going to spend a whole day or two driving to different properties to survey the property and go to the leasing office. They may just start their search online from the comfort of their own home or on campus when they find free time between classes.

Increase your chances of being found in a quick search or even when a potential student renter isn’t necessarily looking. Manage a social media account (or multiple) to update your social media presence and make room for a positive impact on your online reputation. Choosing to open a social media account on a platform like Facebook will allow you to post updates or announcements as often as you would like, advertise your property, and also allow a platform for potential student renters to connect with you with a quick message or comment.

Your social media account can also include testimonials or reviews from past and current student renters to help solidify your online reputation.

Regardless of how much you have paid attention to your online reputation in the past – it is never too late to review your online reputation and consider how it affects your property’s ability to attract student renters. Instead of fearing how your online reputation can turn student renters away from your property, use your online reputation to your advantage to attract future student renters.

Don’t Flop Before You Flip: How To Navigate 
Through Scams And Create Financial Freedom

American Apartment Owners Association - Mon, 04/16/2018 - 8:26am

P.T. Barnum once said, “A sucker is born every minute.” But, with the birth of reality TV, it can be argued a sucker is born every episode.  By using their “celebrity status,” reality TV personalities prey on fans trying to replicate the results they see on popular TV shows like Flip or Flop and Flip This House.  Real estate investing has become an industry rife for scams.

“The fact is that several networks have made the idea of easily making money and becoming financially free wildly popular,” says Ryan Kuhlman, creator of The Flip Coach.  “These shows have mislead viewers to make it look so easy, and they are unrealistic in the profits they portray.”

The reality is that the average flip generates about $25,000 to $45,000 in profit, but many stars of these popular TV shows promise much more.  They have made millions by promising to share their secrets, but the fact is that most of their millions come from their $30,000-plus “mentoring programs,” versus real-estate investments.  We trust these TV stars because we invite them into our homes every week and feel like we know them.  Websites exist that are dedicated to reviewing these programs and calling out these scams, but what are some things you can look out for from the get-go if you truly want to learn abut real estate investing?

1) Remember the adage, “If it is too good to be true, it probably is.”  Why would a millionaire real estate investor want to give you all of his secrets for free?  He wouldn’t, and that’s because everything has a price.  These gurus advertise their mentoring programs and get rich with “no money, no credit” gimmicks all over the Internet and radio. They tempt fans to sign up for “FREE” seminars that will allegedly equip you with all the valuable information needed to be successful in this business.  That’s when you’ll find red flag number 2…

2) The upsell.  The free seminar is only an opportunity for them to sell you on their boot camp, where they entice you with just enough information to sell you their boot camp. 

3) More upsell. The two-to-three day boot camp is a way for reality TV celebrities to offer tidbits of information before going in with the hard sell, offering you their $30k-to-$60k real-estate mentoring courses that promise to finally give you their secret. But here’s the real secret: there are no secrets. Sadly, the chance of you ever hearing from these so-called mentors again is nearly zero.

4) No real local or specialized market knowledge.  How can investing in property be the same in Kansas as it is in Los Angeles?  It absolutely isn’t.  You either have to have local market expertise, or learn how to find someone who does.  If a program tells you that their program works in any market, it is probably a scam.

5) I repeat, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is! Reality stars who promise easy profits from their overpriced mentoring programs are little more than scam artists. While there is money to be made in real estate investing, it takes diligence, experience, teamwork and hard work. 

There are many sites dedicated to reviewing these programs, so anyone interested can do their homework before investing such a large sum of money in a mentoring program.  There are also other options such as Kuhlman’s Flip Coach program ( that provide a blueprint of how to start your own real-estate investment business, while respecting the need for local market knowledge, hard work and dedication.  He is also the only one in the industry to provide live online coaching.  Unlike other real estate investment programs, The Flip Coach is a standalone program that does not require any additional upsold products to be effective.   

“The fact is that you can be successful in real estate investing, but you have to be willing to put in the work and learn your market,” says Kuhlman, who is also the owner of Broward and Miami-Dade’s Real Estate Investors Associations and the youngest board member of the National Real Estate Investors Association.

Don’t allow the celebrity of reality TV lure you into investing $30,000 into celebrities rather than into real estate.  According to Google, Than Merrill is worth over $100 million, Armando Montelongo brags that he makes more than $50 million per year, and Cody Sperber owns more than $1 million in cars alone and is worth an estimated $200 million. Sperber’s website states he has closed 1,000 deals in seven years, and averages 7 to15 deals per month. If you do the math, it just doesn’t add up.

However, the real question remains: how much do these so-called celebrities earn from selling you their secret systems, and how much of their fortune is from actually flipping houses? More importantly, once they sell you their mentoring program, what is their incentive to make you successful? Once these reality stars have their team sell you their mentoring program, they leave town. You’d be lucky to have more than a few conversations over the phone or email, and you are out a very significant investment.

Two Smart Moves For Property Managers To Up Their Communication Game

American Apartment Owners Association - Mon, 04/16/2018 - 8:22am

Communication sounds so easy in theory. So how come it’s so tricky to get right? Just how frequently you “tickle” or get in touch with the onsite managers at your properties — and how you do it — can make or break a multifamily management company. As the head of one of Houston’s busiest, I’ve taken this knowledge to heart.

It’s simple enough to understand: Companies perform better when they acknowledge the role that clear communication plays in their day-to-day workflow and subsequently prioritize tasks accordingly, and communication is essential to an organization’s success, financial or otherwise. And in a market as active and wild as Houston, clear communication is a must. Below are a few ways to improve both your company’s and your own performance, improving your investor’s return on investment as well as your own reputation and experience as a property manager.


Property management software helps automate the communication process. Why not use it? Today there are many software options, and most can easily throw all of that complicated communication between managers, maintenance crews and tenants into a one-stop hub. An endless stream of spreadsheets, emails and phone calls creates confusion, but automation will see that your work orders are scheduled and tracked while notifications keep everyone tuned in and up to date.

There are plenty of vendors who haven’t digitized their invoice and notification process and it costs them in time and organization. The benefits of using technology for electronic data interchange (EDI) automation are not to be ignored. Property management software integrates the whole payable process so that all records and invoices are stored and accessible online for complete, real-time transparency. 

Streamlining communication is all about organization. Good property management software lets managers schedule and complete work orders over the internet, as well as easily send and receive notifications upon status changes and even alert the tenant upon completion.

Maintenance modules can reduce on-site inspection time with technology that allows staff to use a cell phone to identify an issue and assign a work order. It can even help prioritize a to-do list, create timelines and expectations, and assist in scheduling. All of this creates greater efficiency, better documentation and shorter response times ensuring customer satisfaction.

The benefits of effective communication may be difficult to measure with dollars but is infinitely important to an organization’s culture, health and long-term performance.

Transparent Talk

Maintaining an environment where people can rely on what each other says is important. This can easily be achieved through a transparent, open-door policy and making sure employees at all levels know what that means for them.

Transparency is essential to letting people know you mean what you say. Honesty, integrity and clear communications are important parts of this. Make what you say and what you do match up, regardless of if you’re encouraging your team before a big day or you’re speaking one-on-one with a new employee.

Getting your team together in person helps encourage a cooperative attitude, especially before busy times always making sure that you save or make time for those one-on-one chats.

You’ll find that expectations are met and rules followed when both are written down as well as verbally communicated to team members face-to-face. Being direct and thorough with how you communicate is crucial to making expectations clear. You might choose to regularly publish updates or blast out announcements to make sure everyone’s on the same page. In the age of instant gratification, effective communication will become more and more integral to the success of today’s property managers.

Prices Keep Rising for Apartment Properties, Forcing Investors into Smaller Markets

American Apartment Owners Association - Mon, 04/16/2018 - 8:18am

Investors keep looking for apartment buildings to buy at good prices. The search is leading them to smaller properties in smaller markets.

“Things continue to be very good in multifamily,” says John Sebree, national director of the national multi housing group with brokerage firm Marcus & Millichap.

The amount of money multifamily investors are spending has stabilized at a high level. Investors continue to accept relatively low yields on their acquisitions, even though interest rates rose substantially in 2017 and are expected to rise further. Part of the reason is that apartment rents continue to rise across the country, attracting investors to bid for new properties.

Last year, the volume of investment sales in the sector started slow and finished strong, so that the full-year was roughly equal to that achieved in 2016, with $152.7 billion in transactions, according to Real Capital Analytics (RCA), a New York City-based research firm. That was down just 4.0 percent from $159.1 billion the year before “We had about an equal volume of transactions in 2017 and 2016,” says Lee Everett, senior managing consultant for research firm CoStar.

So far, 2018 seems to be continuing at the same level. January was a busy month for the multifamily sector, with $9.9 billion in sales. February was slower, with $8.1 billion. Together they add up to roughly the same total as last year. “Volume is about the same as it was at this early point in 2017,” according to RCA.

The total dollar amount is high compared to the historic average, though it is lower than the volume achieved during the peak of the cycle in 2015. “The velocity of investment is still above 2014—and no one was complaining about low velocity of sales in 2014. We are still at a high level of velocity,” says Sebree.

Prices are high and rising for apartment properties, according to RCA’s Commercial Property Price Index (CPPI). The index rose 7.3 percent for properties in the six major metropolitan areas over the 12 months that ended in February. The index rose even more sharply—12.4 percent—in non-major metropolitan areas over the same period.

These high prices are keeping the yields produced by apartment properties very low, despite rising rents. The interest rates that investors have to pay on long-term loans have also risen, and are expected to rise more. Eventually, this should have an effect on the yields investors are willing to accept. But cap rates on deals for apartment properties remain at historic lows, averaging well under 6.0 percent, according to RCA.

“There is scant evidence of an uptick in apartment cap rates yet,” according to RCA.

Long-term interest rates are expected to rise in 2018 as raises to short-term rates by the Federal Reserve ripple through the economy, eventually pushing long-term rates higher and supporting higher cap rates. “The only variable we are monitoring right now is the 10-year Treasury. Over the next couple of years, it is going to drift up,” says Sebree.

In the meanwhile, investors are hunting for higher yields and properties that are likely to appreciate in value. The search is pushing them to smaller assets, often located in smaller markets. As a result, CoStar’s “equal-weighted” index of prices for apartment properties has risen more quickly than CoStar’s “value-weighted” index over the last two years.

“Fewer trophy assets are now trading,” says  Everett. “More investors are moving to workforce housing.”

Investors also remain enthusiastic about the apartment sector overall. The fundamental demand for rental housing continues to be strong, says Sebree. “I see absolutely nothing that changes that,” he notes. “Most owners see a pretty good runway ahead of them.”

Construction delays have also helped protect the apartment sector from overbuilding. Mid-rise apartment buildings are now taking an extra six months, on average, to complete. That’s twice as long as the average delays experienced at the same time last year.

Some of the uncertainties that hung over the sector last year have resolved. For example, the tax reform that passed recently could have removed many provisions that multifamily investors depend on. But the final version of the reform that became law turned out to be very favorable to the apartment sector.
