THE SCIENCE OF AGING

As we get older, the visible effects of aging

on our faces are underpinned by changes in the
facial skeleton, 
muscles, fat and within the skin itself

FACIAL BONES CHANGE THROUGHOUT LIFE:

The eye socket gets unevenly larger.

The cheekbone becomes more straight and less angled.

The maxilla of the mid-face recedes.

The jawbone partially reduces.

Our Signature Process

Stellar results 2.png
We use fillers and collagen stimulators to preserve and lift lost facial structure rather than simply plumping or filling.
We use neurotoxin injections (like Botox) to treat and retrain dysfunctional down muscles, which prevents sagging and gives long-lasting results.
We use threads and fat-dissolving injections (like Kybella) to lift and reposition falling fat and sagging skin to its former higher plane.
Our clinical level skin treatments like fractional lasers, PRP micro-needling and neurotoxin facials can tighten loose skin, shrink pores and smooth the skin's texture by forming new collagen and elastin.

Do I need to hire a lawyer to rent my house or duplex?


If you are new to renting residential real estate, it can be tempting to save money by using a lease from the internet or a DIY legal form guide. These leases may not be fully applicable to your situation, or worse, may contain clauses that violate Ohio law. If a problem arises under a DIY lease, you may find yourself in a situation where you must pay damages and attorney's fees to your tenant. Contact The Law Office of Michael Gefvert, LLC to draft a lease agreement for your situation or to review a lease agreement you are currently using.




My tenant is behind on rent. What are my options?


There are a couple things that you can do when you have a tenant who is not timely paying rent. First, your lease may specify a non-payment penalty that you can collect with the late rent. You could negotiate a payment plan with your tenant, accepting partial payments to make up the amount owed, but this may result in an alteration of the lease agreement and make it more difficult to remove the tenant for non-payment of rent in the future. Lastly, you can evict your tenant for non-payment. Contact The Law Office of Michael Gefvert, LLC to discuss your options for tenant non-payment of rent.




Can I evict my tenant without a lawyer?


It depends. If you have set up a limited liability company to rent your property, only a licensed attorney can represent the company in court. If you are renting property you own in your own name, you can pursue an eviction yourself. The Franklin County Municipal Court lacks a form that can be used to initiate an eviction, and the clerks may not assist you in making sure your complaint is complete, that you have followed all of the required steps, or give you guidance in conducting a hearing on your eviction. Failure at any step in the process will likely result in your property not generating rental income for a considerably longer length of time. Contact the Law Office of Michael Gefvert, LLC for guidance and representation in your eviction proceeding.




My tenant has overstayed their lease. Can I remove their property and change the locks while they are not there?


Removing your tenant's property and changing the locks to deny access to the property, even after the tenant has no legal right to remain at the property, is illegal under Ohio law. You may proceed with an eviction action against the tenant, and seek to recover money damages for your tenant's overstay. Contact the Law Office of Michael Gefvert, LLC today to begin the process of removing a tenant who has overstayed their lease term.




I would like to limit my personal liability in the event of an accident at my rental home. What can I do?


There are many ways to limit the chance that you will be personally liable for an injury or accident that occurs at your leased property. First, you can purchase landlord insurance, which is probably required by your mortgage lender if you do not own the property outright. You can also set up a limited liability company (LLC) to own and manage your rental property to insulate yourself personally from liability. A tenant or tenant's guest who is injured at your property could sue the LLC and recover money from the LLC, but not from your own assets, assuming you run the LLC properly as its own venture. It is important to consult your lender prior to transferring your property to an LLC, as it may trigger a "due on sale" clause, resulting in your current mortgage being cancelled, and the total amount due being demanded immediately. Contact the Law Office of Michael Gefvert, LLC today to discuss how you can limit your personal liability and what methods are best for your personal situation.




What can I expect from the eviction process?


To initiate the process of evicting your tenant, you must first give the tenant notice to leave the property. This may be done by posting notice at the tenant's address or by certified mail, which is a costly and time-consuming alternative but may be the best option for an out of state landlord. The notice must state "You are being asked to leave the premises. If you do not leave, an eviction action may be initiated against you. If you are in doubt regarding your legal rights and obligations as a tenant, it is recommended that you seek legal assistance." If you retain The Law Office of Michael Gefvert, LLC, you will be provided with a notice to give your tenant that meets this requirement. After you have posted the notice, you must wait three court days to file a complaint for forcible entry and detainer. To figure out what date you can file, start with the first day after you posted notice and then skip any weekend or court-observed holiday. You can file on the fourth day. The court clerk will assign a court date two to three weeks after you have filed your forcible entry and detainer complaint. If the court sides with you on the complaint, you can then ask the court for a writ of execution to return possession of your leased premises to you. The clerk will then serve the "red tag notice" at the leased premises, which will give the tenant an additional five days to move out of the property. If the tenant has still not moved after the five days, you can ask the clerk for a supervised set-out where you provide a team of movers to remove the tenant's property from the unit and a deputy clerk stands by to supervise the process.




How much does it cost to evict a tenant?


In addition to the fee you pay your attorney to represent you, the following filing fees are required to be paid to the Franklin County Clerk of Court: Eviction Complaint- $133 Red Tag Notice- $35 Supervised Set Out- $45 Tenants often vacate the premises after receiving the red tag notice, so the supervised set out fee should not be paid until necessary.




Can I recover money from my tenant who I evicted?


You can recover money due under the lease as well as money for any damages to the rental property beyond ordinary wear and tear. Seeking money from the tenant in an eviction is known as a "two cause action." If the tenant files an answer to the complaint, the hearing on damages will be delayed to a second court date. It is most often not practical to pursue a tenant for damages during or after an eviction. You will incur additional cost in trying to collect the award from the court from the tenant and the tenant probably lacks assets to satisfy the award. Generally speaking, a tenant who can readily pay an award of damages in an eviction action is a tenant who does not need to be evicted in the first place. Exceptions exist, and The Law Office of Michael Gefvert, LLC can represent you through the entirety of the process if the situation warrants.




My tenant moved out after giving proper notice under the lease but left the property a mess. Can I keep the security deposit?


You can only deduct from the security deposit for damages done to the unit beyond normal wear and tear. For example, a hole in drywall that is larger than a nail-hole that needs to be patched and painted can be charged against the deposit. General cleaning services to get the unit ready for a new tenant are not chargeable under the security deposit. If you are replacing floor covering as a result of the condition they were left it, you may be able to charge some of the cost against the security deposit, but the cost must be the expected remaining value of the replaced flooring, not the cost of the new one. The remainder of the deposit and an itemized list of deductions must be given to the tenant within 30 days after they have moved out. Withholding security deposits is an area where landlords should exercise caution. A tenant who feels agrieved about their security deposit being withheld can sue the landlord for double the amount wrongfully withheld and attorney's fees. A cautionary tale out of Cincinnati ended with the landlord having to pay the tenant $580 after wrongfully withholding $40 for cleaning fees. Contact the Law Office of Michael Gefvert, LLC today if you are unsure whether you can withhold part or all of a security deposit from a former tenant.
