Our firm represents clients in all aspects of real estate law. Our areas of real estate practice include:
Commercial and Residential Leases
We assist property owners to draft and enforce leases for real estate. For residential properties, landlords must comply with the Plain Language Law. For commercial landlords, we can assist to make sure your lease correctly captures the obligations of the landlord and tenant.
For Sale By Owner or FSBO
Many times an owner may wish to try to sell his or her property without the assistance of a real estate agent. We work with buyers and sellers who are looking to sell their real estate without the assistance of a real estate agent. The first step in selling your house is to complete a seller disclosure statement. You must provide this to any buyer prior to signing an agreement of sale. You must also provide a lead based paint disclosure if your house is built prior to 1978. If you would like us to assist you with the purchase/sale of your property, please call us on the phone or submit a contact form.
Zoning and Planning
We represent property owners before zoning board and planning commissions so they can use their property to their full enjoyment.
In situations where title insurance or a title search is not necessary, we can prepare a deed transferring your property. This typically would involve a transfer from parents to children. We can help guide you through the tax issues regarding gifting your house, and the potential capital gains that may be passed onto your children vs. the inheritance taxes that may be due if you were to retain title to your house. We also will ensure that all municipal requirements are satisfied as part of any deed transfer. This typically will include dye test and occupancy permits.
Oil and Gas
We can assist property owners to review a lease for gas rights on their property.
We can help property owners prevent a mechanics lien from being filed against their property, or if a mechanics lien is already filed, we can represent the owner in resolving the lien claim.
