Real Estate Law
We routinely work on a variety of real estate related matters, involving a wide range of different types of real estate. This includes the purchase/sale of commercial buildings, unimproved land, and/or the purchase/sale of home residences. We also draft and review many commercial leases, both for owners and lessees of commercial real estate. We represent clients in the following types of real estate transactions:
- Purchases and sales of commercial real estate, including freestanding buildings, land, office condominiums, etc.
- Assisting homeowners or future homeowners in the various legal tasks included in the purchase/sale of home residences.
- Negotiation and contract preparation/review for leases of commercial real estate space. This may involve representing the owner of the underlying property being leased, or the party interested in leasing the specific property, office or industrial space, etc.
A Further Word on Real Estate & Home Purchases - Real Estate purchasing and selling (including for homes) can be a challenging process for both the purchaser and seller. There are often financing issues, escrow procedures, disclosures to be made, laws to be followed, etc. Even though a broker may be involved, often times the broker is representing both of the parties, which means that the broker is not exclusively representing either party, or watching out solely for your best interest. That is why having an experienced attorney working with you to assist you in the process can make the whole process less stressful, and lead to a successful, timely closing of the escrow.
