Real Estate Law
Real Estate Law
Real property or real estate practice encompasses everyday transactions: buying or selling homes, commercial or industrial sites and buildings, financing, whether through banks, other commercial lenders or seller take-back mortgages, zoning and subdivision regulations and title restrictions, and deed encumbrances and landlord-tenant matters.
While the foregoing list are types of matters our attorneys routinely handle, we also have substantial experience in representations including homeowners’ associations, condominium associations, developers, mortgage workouts, foreclosures, redevelopment projects, property line disputes, neighbor disputes and more.
More recently, we have also begun to assist in reinstating deeds of trust after foreclosures and returning legal title of houses to the homeowners. Whether the real property issue you face is in the future or something you are in the middle of, we can assist you by explaining your options, rights and obligations, and represent you in resolving your particular matter. Call us to see if we can help you.
We can assist you in most of your real estate matters, including:
- Condominium Associations
- Deed Restrictions
- Deeds of Trust
- Homeowners’ Associations
- “Like-Kind” Exchanges
- Mortgage Reinstatements
- Neighbor Disputes
- Property Line Disputes
- Road Associations
- Tax Credits
