5 Ways A Real Estate Lawyer Can Help with Your Transaction

Whether you are contemplating purchasing property, selling property, leasing property or developing property, having a real estate lawyer to guide you can prove to be one of your most valuable assets. An attorney who has a broad understanding of real estate will be able to provide you with far more than litigation services – they will advise you regarding the market, trends, financing options, and successful strategies, as well as with all of the legal issues that are involved in negotiating and executing contracts. If you are in need of a real estate lawyer who is responsive, knowledgeable and insightful, contact the law firm of Wallace Law. We are dedicated to providing for all of our clients’ real estate law needs.

There are many ways that a real estate lawyer can help. Five of the most common transactions that we assist our clients with include:

  1. Providing counsel and representation to both home buyers and home sellers: We are able to provide with valuable insights regarding the market and reviews of all contracts with an eye to ensuring that your interests are protected. Buying or selling a home is one of the most consequential financial transactions most people engage in.
  2. Providing guidance for those who are approaching a short sale or facing foreclosure: Whether you are considering a short sale of a property you own or are contemplating purchasing a home that is being offered on short sale, these transactions are unique and complex. We can provide guidance on what you can expect, negotiate on your behalf with a lender to get additional benefits such as relocation assistance, make sure that all appropriate riders and documents are executed, and provide any research needed to ensure that you are protected if you are purchasing a short sale property.
  3. Assisting in the negotiations and contract execution regarding commercial leasing property: We can assist you with commercial lease transactions, including purchasing and sales of business property, structuring and entry into lease agreements, evaluating purchases, and managing problematic tenant situations.
  4. Representing landlords or tenants in matters of eviction or leasing issues: Being a landlord always holds the risk of problems with tenants, including nonpayment of rent and violation of lease terms. We can assist you with enforcement of leases, negotiating mutual release agreements, as well as navigating the eviction process and finding alternative solutions.
  5. Representation of property owners cited for building code violations: If you have been cited with a violation, we will work to get the citations dismissed through an active defense, or negotiate to get you the time you need to address the problem.

At Wallace Law, we pride ourselves on our ability to provide our clients with attentive, effective, legal representation no matter what type of real estate transaction they are involved in. Call our office today to set up a convenient appointment to discuss your needs.
