Real Estate Law
There are many aspects to Real Estate Law and requires expert guidance and representation. To most, purchasing a home is one of the biggest decisions that a person can make. So be sure that you choose an attorney who has the experience, the knowledge, and the network of relationships to ensure a smooth transaction.
Here are some of the areas of Real Estate Law that you may need legal guidance:
Buying a home
The process of buying a home is a very complicated one and is easy to get lost in the chaos. There are many contracts involved that should be thoroughly examined, word-for-word. One miss and you could buy a property that is full of problems and could cost thousands upon thousands of dollars to resolve, or even lose the deal completely.
Selling a home
Selling a home is another area that needs expert attention. You will want to make sure you are clear of all financial responsibilities when changing ownership, and nothing comes back to haunt you. There may be tax and utility responsibilities to consider, and you will want to be sure that everything is legally covered.
Foreclosure is a touchy subject. There is nothing easy when dealing with these powerful banks looking for their money. Yes, you may be in a stressful situation, however, you do have rights. Allow us to assess your situation and take the best course of action.
There are situations where you are struggling to hold a contractor or home building company responsible for defective work. These companies may have a legal team and know how to navigate through the system to minimize liability. You then will need legal advice to effectively resolve these issues.
Land Use Laws
Easements, Eminent Domain, and Trespassing are among some of the Land Use matters that you may deal with. Call us to determine if you have a legal issue and the best way to handle the situation.
Obtaining a Mortgage and Home Equity Loans
Borrowing money and using your home as collateral is a significant decision. You will need to fully understand the terms on the contract to ensure you are not falling victim to predatory schemes.There are also times where you will need to handle deposit money and a lawyer will be able to facilitate the exchange of any funds according to state regulatory law. Do not provide any money to anyone until you consult with an attorney!
Landlord Tenant Law
Landlors, you cannot just lock someone out and throw families out on the street. There is a process to esure everyone's welfare. We understand that the laws may seem to protect the Tenants' best interest, but this is where a well-thought-out and legally binding Lease Agreement is necessary to protect a Landlord's best interest.
Tenants, upon signing a Lease Agreement, you are legally binded to all the terms in that contract. If you do not fully understand the terms written in the agreement, please call us for legal guidance and we will ensure that you understand and are fully aware of those terms. You owe it to yourself and to your family to do your due diligence.
Neighbors can be easy or complicated. When things like property boundaries, trees leaning over your property line and possibly causing damage, or frequent disturbances, you may want to call an attorney to help resolve these disputes. For the sake of keeping the peace, it may be best to consult with a lawyer before taking matters into your own hands.
