The purchase of residential real estate usually involves three parties: the buyer, the seller, and the lender. This can make things complex. Plus, the law that governs real estate transactions is different from the law governing other kinds of purchases. An experienced legal professional from our firm can help you in this tricky area, especially when problems arise.
If you already own your property, and are a landlord, you are probably well aware of the headache a problem tenant can create. California real estate law has numerous safeguards to protect tenants, and the law gives them arbitrary rights where you assume criminal liability if you fail to follow the correct processes. A real estate lawyer can help you navigate the complex landlord tenant law and help get you the best possible outcome.
Commercial real estate transactions are usually more complex than residential transactions. There are safeguards for buyers of residential real estate, but for commercial the law assumes both parties should be able to understand the contract terms. Properties need to have a solid valuation, as large sums of money regularly change hands in these transactions. There is typically a lot of negotiation built in to these transactions which a lawyer can help you with. Transfer of these large commercial properties also involves transfer of liability for the property. If there are existing violations, or there are other environmental hazards, the new owner assumes the liability for these problems. The law surrounding commercial real estate is complex, and an experienced lawyer can help.
