Why do you need a Real Estate Attorney?

When you hear the word "attorney," your mind might immediately jump to images of courtroom drama or legal disputes. However, when you are dealing with real estate, having a local real estate attorney by your side at the beginning can make all the difference.  Here are some instances where consulting a real estate attorney could be your smartest move:


1.      Estate Settlements

When a loved one passes away and leaves behind property for their heirs, things can get complicated. There might be specific conditions attached to the property or disputes among beneficiaries. In such situations, having a real estate attorney on your team can provide valuable guidance and representation, especially if you're tasked with managing the estate as the executor.

2.      Commercial Purchase

If you are looking to purchase commercial real estate for your business, it’s important to know that buying commercial property is more complex than buying a home. From zoning regulations to lease agreements, there's a lot to navigate. A local real estate attorney can offer expertise to ensure you understand every aspect of the process. 

3.      Encroachments or Boundary Issues

Maybe you have discovered some encroachments or boundary issues on property you own or intend to buy.  A real estate attorney can help you navigate the various ways to deal with encroachments or uncertain boundaries.  

4.      Access 

Some properties are remote from public roads.  Do you have the rights you need to get to a piece of property?  Has someone asked you if they can cross your property to get to theirs? 


Did you know that in 2020, nearly 6 million existing homes were sold in the US? That's a lot of real estate transactions! And many of those deals were likely made smoother with the help of knowledgeable real estate attorneys.
