Commercial Real Estate

At our firm, we help developers, property managers and contractors effectively manage all commercial real estate matters, including:

  • Management of commercial real estate transactions, including due diligence investigations, securing financing agreements, drafting and negotiating vendor contracts and lien documents, and attending closings
  • Preparation and review of commercial leases, including representation in lease negotiations and drafting amendments or extensions to existing leases.
  • Real estate litigation defense, including disputes over property, contested titles, land use and breaches of contract.

One of the most important factors in any commercial real estate purchase is conducting a thorough due diligence investigation. Our attorney — Andrew M. Carter — will identify the tenants currently residing at the property, what these tenants pay in rent, conduct an environmental audit, and commission a detailed property report.

Residential Real Estate

We represent buyers, sellers, businesses and lenders in all aspects of residential real estate transactions, including:

  • Preparing and reviewing purchase agreements and other contracts
  • Monitoring the mortgage contingency date for deals contingent on obtaining mortgage approval by a certain date
  • A home inspection, including reviewing property surveys, title insurance, title to the property and home inspection reports, to ensure that the home has no major defects and good title will be passed
  • Attending the closing

We provide a mortgage foreclosure defense for clients whose home in foreclosure. We help our clients consider all available options — including Chapter 7 bankruptcy — to save their home and keep them in their homes during their legal proceedings.
