Protecting Your Real Estate Interests
The process of buying, selling or developing real property (residential or commercial) can be complex and oftentimes overwhelming We can help make the process seem simple and protect you in the process. We handle these transactions from contract to closing as well as financing. We are able to handle any type of financing transaction and represent buyers on deals ranging from the hundreds of thousands of dollars to multi millions. In the event you find yourself in a dispute over one of these contracts or any other real estate related dispute, our real estate litigation attorneys can work with you to ensure your property rights are adequately protected against adverse parties and claims and help you try to achieve the desired results. We also handle zoning issues and have a team of attorneys who can represent you before the municipal zoning boards.
We Can Handle It All
In the context of residential real estate, our attorneys can handle even the most unusual of problems. For instance, some buyers have run into complications with government entities over land use, requiring a land use appeal. Instead of facing the land use appeals board (typically zoning boards of appeal) on your own, an attorney can present your case and argue why your planned development or historical designation is within the municipal zoning laws.
We are similarly skilled in reviewing the results of a title search and taking appropriate action to clear issues on your title. These include a potential claim or land interest by another party, which can result in the inability of a buyer or seller to close the deal. More specifically, banks and lending institutions will generally not lend money for the purchase of a home if there is an issue with title.
In addition, our real estate attorneys are adept at handling any problems that arise in the sale or purchase of a home, including:
- Disputes occurring in the drafting and execution of a purchase contract.
- Handling a rescission or misrepresentation by the buyer or seller.
- Problems with the title or survey.
- State and local regulations, including compliance with zoning ordinances.
- Issues with lending institutions.
- Disagreements involving new home construction and implied or express warranties.
