Residential Real Estate

Buying or selling a home is often the most significant financial transaction that many individuals undertake in their lifetime. While this can be an exciting time, without the proper legal guidance, the process can be frustrating, overwhelming and more expensive than necessary.  Even if there are no apparent disagreements between the Buyer and Seller, it is advisable to enter into real estate transactions with the assistance and guidance of one’s own attorney who can help steer the client away from common pitfalls and facilitate a smooth transfer of title to the property.

We represent buyers, sellers and financial institutions in various real estate matters ranging from drafting the purchase and sale contract to examining the title and arranging for a title insurance policy to closing the transaction and overseeing the proper disbursement of closing proceeds.

We offer our clients broad-based legal real estate advice and representation in the following transactions:

  • Real estate sales or purchase transactions
  • Closings
  • Construction contracts
  • Leases
  • Institutional and private mortgage-based financing transactions

In addition to real estate transactions, we assist with the following residential and commercial real estate issues:

  • Title examination and title clearing
  • Land use
  • Easements
  • Zoning
  • Permit appeals
  • Tax-free exchanges
  • Foreclosures
  • Document review
  • Breach of contract
  • Buyer-seller disputes
