Real Estate

Law in the area of real estate encompasses many problems or issues that one may face. Adjoining property owners may have a boundary line dispute. Such disputes are generally resolved through boundary line adjustments, easements or litigation for adverse possession or quiet title.

Whether you are buying or selling real property, even if you have a realtor and the property is listed on the MLS, you should have legal representation entering into the purchase and sale agreement and other such real estate transaction documents.

Some of the many issues that can arise during the transaction or after it closes are:

  • Satisfaction of the contingencies
  • Environmental issues
  • Breach of real estate warranties
  • Title insurance matters
  • Covenants and restrictions that affect the property

Further, real estate sales that are seller-financed require financing documentation, including a promissory note and deed of trust. Similarly, if you are a landlord or a tenant, you should have an attorney to advise you as to your important legal rights regarding your lease, tenancy and the rental property.

Other areas of real estate law where we can provide legal assistance are:

  • Easement issues and disputes
  • Appealing property taxes
  • Zoning violation
  • Partition actions
  • Construction defects
  • Contractor's lien
  • Home owners' associations
  • Condemnation
  • Eminent domain
