Real Estate Law for Complex Transactions

If you are buying or selling real estate, whether it is residential or commercial, our attorneys at Tate Moerer & King will provide you the assistance you need. You want to be sure your purchase or sale complies with all laws. You also want to be certain that your purchase is exactly what you expect it to be.

Real estate law is often complicated. We will guide you through the process of buying or selling your property.

Individual Real Estate Property Transactions

Buying real estate for you and your family involves more than just finding a home you like with the right square footage. Some things we can help you with include:

  • Making sure any improvements had proper permits.
  • Checking zoning codes so that you will be able to make any additions or renovations that are on your list.
  • Confirming property boundaries are where they appear to be by an updated survey.
  • Determining if there are any easements or encroachments. Sometimes utilities have easements to run wires either across your property or underground.
  • If there is a Homeowners Association (HOA), we will make sure you understand the limitations and conditions.

Commercial Real Estate Transactions

Three issues that often concern buyers of commercial real estate are:

  • Does the zoning allow for the purposes for which you are purchasing the property?
  • Are the land use requirements and regulations satisfactory for your needs?
  • Are you able to comply with the environmental rules applicable to the property?

At Tate Moerer & King, we can make sure you have all your questions answered before closing.

Real Estate Disputes

There are situations where, no matter how careful you are, there may still be disputes. The most common disputes deal with boundary and easement disagreements. You may have a conflict with rules and regulations of your HOA. You may have a dispute with your real estate agent, who breached his or her fiduciary duty to you by failing to disclose important information about the property.
