Real Estate

The purchase, sale, lease, rental or gifting of real property is a major decision. If you are selling or buying real property without the aid of a real estate agent, it is important to have an experienced professional prepare or review the necessary documents to complete the transaction properly. Many people are tempted to use inexpensive forms obtained in office supply stores or on the internet, however the one form fits all approach doesn't always work for every situation and may leave you vulnerable to further legal complications. Even if you are purchasing or selling real property with the aid of a real estate agent, it may make sense to have an unbiased professional review the documents and advise you of your best course of action.

The decision to lease or rent property, or lease or rent to own property is also a major decision, particularly when the parties are family members or friends of the family. A properly prepared contract lays out the terms up front and will help to alleviate problems among family members in the future.
