Many people believe they do not need an attorney for most real estate transactions. However, there can be pitfalls associated with a real estate transaction that can catch you off guard. The typical language in a standard deed, lease, purchase agreement, or homeowner’s association documents can be confusing, and could significantly impact your property rights. When you combine these potential problems with financing, zoning issues, and increased regulations, hiring an attorney makes sense.
Home ownership has traditionally been viewed as ”The American Dream.” We work hard to protect your interests in that dream. Whether you are selling or buying a property, or you have decided to lease, you can count on us to draft documents that protect your rights and help make your dreams a reality. We can also help with the review of existing agreements.
We provide full transaction settlement services to buyers and sellers of real estate. We will walk you through the entire process from the initial contract to the closing table. Our closing services include review and confirmation of all closing costs; examining the real estate title; preparing or reviewing the various documents required; obtaining title insurance; recording the closing documents; and, disbursing funds.
Commercial real estate transactions require considerable planning, customized documentation, zoning and land use contingencies, and a myriad of financing issues. We assist clients buying or selling commercial real estate by drafting the custom documents needed and working with banks, government agencies and others to resolve issues and bring your transaction to the closing table.
Ties With Other Areas of Practice
It is not uncommon for real estate issues to come up while we provide services in other matters that are not – strictly speaking – a “real estate” transaction. We assist clients with transfers for estate planning purposes, corporate formations, loan workouts, restructurings, and foreclosures. We have your back. We are here to assist you when real estate is an issue whether you are buying, selling, renting, structuring your business or planning your estate.
