Commercial and Residential Real Estate

Posted on Posted in Blog

The purchase and sale of real estate should be handled by an attorney representing your interests. Before land is purchased or development occurs, an effective real estate attorney should work with you to review title and obtain title insurance, obtain environmental due diligence of the land and the building, determine whether there needs to be compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and whether the land, structures, and use of the property conform to zoning regulations in effect at the time of purchase or sale. Your real estate attorney should also be well-versed in the financing of real estate transactions and the real estate tax consequences. When a deal falls apart, there can sometimes be real estate litigation that occurs, and an attorney well-versed in all aspects of real estate law, trial experience, and corporate and business affairs is essential.
