How We Can Help With Real Property Transactions

Real estate transactions typically involve significant financial commitments and decisions made by all parties involved. Often times, people make decisions based on advice from friends, agents, loan officers, etc. In real estate, what you don’t know can hurt you. Maybe not always today, but perhaps in the future. That is why having experienced real estate and title lawyers advise you before you sign documents or commit to a course of action is highly recommended.

Real estate transactions are more complicated than the average homebuyer understands. There are many subsets that require expert understanding, such as: contract law, common contingencies and how to navigate them, conveyancing and tenancies, easements, restrictions on use and enjoyment, title examination, title insurance, mortgage lending regulations like RESPA and TRID, lien clearing, taxes and assessments, oil/gas/mineral rights, surveys, homeowners associations, condominium regulations, probate estate sales, foreclosures, trusts & fiduciary duties, powers of attorney, and more.

Having an experienced partner advising you as you undertake a real estate transaction will ensure that you understand the risks and can make the right decisions for your future.
