Protecting Real Estate Clients From Risk and Liability
At the Heritage Law Group, our attorneys help residential and commercial real estate clients understand the details of purchase, sale and lease transactions. We also identify the potential problems that a particular project might pose, and present our clients with a range of practical approaches for avoiding them. Our lawyers can also resolve the snags that buyers and sellers sometimes encounter prior to closing, or even after the transaction is complete.
The advice of an experienced real estate attorney can save you time, money and stress in transactions ranging from residential sale-by-owner deals to commercial leases. Contact the Heritage Law Group to learn about the scope of our real estate practice and the ways it can benefit you.
The expense and complexity of many real estate transactions suggest that an attorney’s advice should be a basic step for any party involved in such transactions. Our lawyers can protect you from financial risk and potential liability by informing you what the law says about your own obligations as well as the other party’s responsibilities.
Our lawyers negotiate sale or lease terms, review and prepare documentation, and correct errors and oversights in real estate transactions of all kinds both before and after closing. Many of our business clients are real estate professionals, and our thorough familiarity with both the law and the practical considerations relating to a transaction can help you avoid or resolve problems.
