We Know The Peculiarities Of Landlord-tenant Relations In A College Town

In towns like Oxford, which have large populations of college students, we understand that the apartment rental process is a little different than the standard process. Many college students sign leases for apartments up to a year in advance to secure apartments that they really want.

Unfortunately, circumstances can change. If you are kicked out of school, decide to transfer to another college or decide that you do not want to live with a roommate anymore, you will likely want to get out of the lease, which is difficult, just like getting out of any other contract.

As skilled litigators and negotiators, our attorneys have helped many student tenants and landlords come to workable agreements that release students from leases and give landlords time to rent out the resulting vacancies.
