Residential Real Estate

Buying or selling a home is 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 obvious disagreements between the Buyer and Seller, it is advisable for each party to enter into real estate transactions with one’s own attorney who can help steer them away from common pitfalls and facilitate a smooth transfer of property.

We represent buyers, sellers and financial institutions in various real estate matters ranging from drafting a purchase and sale contract to obtaining the final title insurance policy.

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

  • Real estate sales transactions
  • Closings
  • Construction contracts
  • Leases
  • Mortgage-based financing transactions

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

  • Land use
  • Easements
  • Zoning
  • Permit appeals
  • Tax-free exchanges
  • Foreclosures
  • Property tax protests (tax certiorari)
  • Breach of contract
  • Buyer-seller disputes
  • Landlord-tenant disputes
