Welcome

Landlord Documents

Landlording begins with the proper documents. Cost effective tenant screening, leasing and property recovery all require documents specifically designed with the Landlord in mind. The Law Office of Jonathan Petersen is committed to providing documents with the most current developments in landlord/tenant law. Don't rely on stationery store forms with generic language when you can have documents created to benefit landlords. The Document Center contains our Single-family Lease, Multi-family/Apartment Lease, Application, Indiana Security Deposit Letter, Replacement Costs Sheet, and more.

NEW! Download the Ten (10) Day Notices for Breach of Lease.

REVISED: Download the Single Family or Multi-family Apartment Leases containing significant updates from prior versions and incorporating language addressing: 1) Tenant bankruptcy; 2) New eviction language; and, 3) Collection procedures.



Indiana Eviction Services

Our office provides eviction services to landlords throughout Northwest Indiana. Since non-paying tenants can seriously impact a real estate business, we strive to provide quick and cost effective solutions when an eviction becomes necessary. I have found that we can produce Indiana evictions as quickly as fourteen (14) days at a nominal cost. In order to start the eviction process, we have included documents in PDF format (requiring Adobe Reader). Please have your eviction request to us before 5:00 PM on Monday in the week that you wish to file.


For existing clients who need to call out the bailiff/sheriff for the physical eviction or who wish to obtain a judgment against the tenant/defendant:
