Real estate law encompasses a broad range of legal matters related to property, including real estate transactions, disputes, zoning matters, and more.
Regardless of whether you are a prospective buyer, seller, landlord or tenant, you would be well advised to obtain the assistance of a real estate attorney in any transaction involving real property. A skilled real estate attorney can inform you of your legal rights, and help explain the costs and benefits of all of your options, including those you may not even be aware of. Utilizing an attorney can help to ensure that your transactions are handled efficiently, and that the most favorable terms possible are agreed upon in a timely manner.

In some cases, where a borrower owes more than a property is worth, it may be in his or her best interest to pursue a Short Sale. In a short sale, the borrower seeks the lender’s approval to release the borrower from his/her obligation to repay his/her debt in exchange for the proceeds of the sale of the property, even though these proceeds do not cover the full balance owed. This option avoids the unpleasant outcome of foreclosure. Our office has significant experience in obtaining short sale approval from a variety of lenders.
