Real Estate Legal Issues
Here are a few common real estate related questions which SRG clients are urged to ask themselves:
Are you an unmarried person who owns a home with another single person?
It is wise to cover all of these important issues in a written, property-sharing agreement which is tailored by an experienced attorney to meet your needs and expectations.
Do you own or are you purchasing property that is affected by an easement?
The law of easements is complex and highly fact-dependent. Learn from an attorney about the rights and duties involved in easement situations such as yours.
Do you have a real estate commission dispute?
Consider hiring a trained mediator who is an attorney with over 30 years of real estate law experience (in an out of court) and who also is a licensed real estate broker.
Did the seller of your home fail to disclose something about your property?
Consult with a lawyer who has prosecuted and defended non-disclosure cases and construction defect matters.
Is your HOA's Board of Directors acting unfairly or is there a nuisance in your complex?
Review your CC&R's and your options with an attorney who has specialized in condominium law since 1978.
Are you about to enter into a commercial lease for your business?
Some commercial leases are drafted for the benefit of the landlord and have many significant provisions buried in "legalese." It is a prudent business practice to confer with an experienced real estate attorney before committing to a long-term lease.
Are you involved in a boundary, fence, tree-cutting or other neighbor related controversy?
An attorney experienced with such cases can help mediate or litigate these matters.
