Real Estate Disclosure
One of the most important responsibilities of the seller of real property is disclosing any conditions that affect the desirability of the property. In our experience, a majority of contentious issues in a real estate closing stem from failure to properly disclose property matters. Legal advice pertaining to this aspect of the real estate transaction can ultimately save both time and money.
Real Estate Closings in California
In California, real estate closings are typically handled by the escrow departments of title companies. Our lawyers work closely with the title company and the escrow officer to protect our clients' interests, whether they are the buyer or seller. In addition, we often receive calls from real estate agents and title agents who need well-grounded real estate advice.
Whether you are a first-time homebuyer or are purchasing multiple investment properties, our lawyers thoroughly review your real estate sale or purchase contract and the seller's disclosure documents. We also negotiate contract offers and counter offers. Our goal is to make certain you clearly understand every aspect of your real estate transaction and that it serves your best interests.
Real Estate Litigation
Litigation may arise when one of the parties is not performing on a real estate contract or when title issues need to be resolved so that the buyer can deliver a clear title to the seller. Real estate disputes are usually resolved by negotiation or threat of litigation. Rarely do they go to court.
Selling Your Home Without a Real Estate Agent
Some people choose to sell their own homes rather than use a real estate agent. Our lawyers can prepare all necessary sales contracts and offer expert legal advice for sale-by-owner clients. Hiring an attorney to advise you in a sale-by-owner transaction can help you avoid expensive mistakes.
