Real Estate

With broad knowledge of real estate law, we have the ability to provide effective and affordable representation in wide-ranging transactions involving real property. We provide transactional and litigation services in the following areas:

  • Negotiation of real estate agreements — In any real estate negotiation, each party has their own needs and wants, and getting everyone to the point of agreement takes experience, knowledge, and skill. We approach negotiations from a legal perspective, not an emotional one, to represent your best interests and navigate any problems that arise.
  • Drafting or review of sales contracts — Once the initial terms of a transaction are agreed upon and a formal written contract is introduced to the process, we make sure the terms are written in view of your needs and goals and that any one-sided provisions favoring the other party are eliminated.
  • Representation in residential, commercial, farm and vacant land sales transactions — Buying real estate is likely the most significant investment of your life. An experienced real estate attorney can assist with many aspects of the transaction beyond just negotiating and drafting the purchase agreement. Our services include performing title examinations, setting up escrow, representing you at closing, and addressing any legal issues such as quiet title actions that arise during the process.
  • Preparation and litigation of real estate contracts — We provide legal support for any type of contract that may be involved in your real estate transaction, including purchase and sale agreements, leases, deeds, and easements. Our team also provides representation in disputes over real estate contracts, easements, boundaries, water well access and other real estate issues.

If you having issues with your property boundaries or easements, or want to avoid issues in the first place, an experienced real estate attorney can help you navigate this confusing and challenging area of law. We have a comprehensive understanding of boundary and easement law and provide legal support through every aspect of the process for all types of property, including vacant land, farms, timber, residential and commercial real estate. We can assist with drafting and negotiating boundary agreements or easements. Our team also can help resolve boundary and easement disputes through litigation or mediation, as well as trespass and nuisance claims, title actions, and other disputes involving your property. Whatever your needs in this area, we can develop a careful strategy to help you achieve your goals as cost-effectively as possible.
