Real Estate Transactions & Litigation

While a real estate agent or broker may be helpful in locating the perfect home or commercial property, the legal aspects of the transaction are complex and best handled by an attorney. While real estate agents are good at matching your needs with properties on the market, most are not well versed in determining whether the chain of title on a piece of property is defective – which can cause serious, expensive issues down the road.

Additionally, many real estate agents use a general real estate contract form to complete the transaction. This can be dangerous and can cause you to incur liability not foreseen by the real estate agent or the parties involved. Attorneys exclusively represent your best interests when overseeing a real estate transaction, and are best equipped to negotiate on your behalf and ensure that the terms of the transaction are in your favor. Through proper negotiation of deals, sound purchase and sales agreements, and financing advice, we help protect your rights and skillfully manage the transaction.
