Your Property Is Your Biggest Asset
Real Estate Litigation & Transactions
We know real estate law. From easements to escrow and liens to lis pendens, our lawyers will help you make good deals and fix bad ones.
Real estate is your single biggest investment and your single biggest liability. When the deal goes well, everything is great. When the deal goes South, it turns into a nightmare.
Imagine this. You just purchased your dream home. Escrow was a breeze, you and your family moved in and now you’re ready to enjoy the rest of your lives. It’s paradise.
But within a few weeks of taking possession, it becomes clear that something is terribly wrong. Maybe there was an undisclosed leak. Perhaps there is a nightmare neighbor. There may even be tree roots growing through some rather problematic places (e.g., a toilet).
We’ve seen it and solved it all.
If you have a real estate issue, we can help. We can help you make good deals by negotiating Purchase Sale Agreements and maneuvering through escrow. We can also help you fix those deals that didn’t quite go like you hoped by aggressively negotiating during pre-litigation mediations, or zealously advocating for your rights in court.
Whether making good deals or fixing bad deals, our attorneys are here to guide the way. We’ll help you navigate the process and give you the best chance at success.
Most real estate purchases and sales go off without a hitch. But sometimes they don’t. The seller may have failed to disclose that the house has foundational issues or that the framing was riddled with termites. Or worse, the seller may have taken active steps to hide the problems. Maybe the seller never had good title to begin with. The complex forms common in real estate transactions, coupled with byzantine common law makes real estate litigation a trap for the unwary. Let us help you navigate the labyrinth of real estate law.
A dispute with a neighbor can be agonizing. Your neighbor might ignore your cordial requests. They may escalate their bad behavior. The dispute may even devolve into physical violence. We’re all tempted to let things slide to keep the peace. But if you wait too long, you may forever lose your legal right to do anything about it. Let us help you make it right before it’s too late.
Hopefully your landlord-tenant relationship will be smooth. But if you have a dispute, we can help you, whether you’re a landlord or a tenant. Better yet, call us before you begin your landlord-tenant relationship and we can help you avoid the disputes before they occur.
Buying real property gives you special rights over your land. Part of exercising those rights means knowing and controlling where your property starts and ends. If you relinquish your rights by waiting too long, you may never get them back. Let us help you preserve your rights.
Government agencies aren’t staffed by lawyers. Even though the government writes the laws, you shouldn’t assume that its bureaucrats know the law well. They’re wrong more often than you think. From health and safety code abatements to wrongful tax liens, if a government agency has you in its sights, we can ensure that the government doesn’t overstep its authority.
“Title” is your legal ownership in property. A problem in your chain of title can deprive you of the ownership rights you thought you had. If you have a title problem, you may not even be able to sell the property. Whether you own the whole thing, or just a portion, we can help you find solutions.
