Our firm provides an array of services in all aspects of real estate law.
Residential and Commercial Real Estate Purchases
We are experienced in residential and commercial real estate purchases, sales, exchanges, and leasing for clients seeking representation in such specific transaction, including handling real estate transactions in which surveys or lot split approval are necessary. We can also assist you with obtaining local government approval for special use or conditional use permits.
So, whether you are buying or selling a residence, a commercial building, agricultural land or a small bare lot, we can assist you with the legal requirements for completing the transaction.
§1031 Deferred Like-Kind Exchanges
Our firm also has substantial experience in assisting clients with §1031 deferred like-kind exchanges, reverse exchanges and built-to-suit transactions so that potential capital gain tax liability can be deferred.
Estate Planning Aspect
Our firm’s real estate practice relates to our practice in estate planning, tax planning and trusts and estates. Because real estate is such an important part of many clients’ estates, creating an estate plan often times requires legal restructuring of the ownership of the real estate. For example, new limited liability entities may need to be formed to own and operate investment property; entities themselves may need to be owned by clients’ trusts; real estate will need to be transferred to revocable trusts in an effort to avoid probate or to minimize estate and inheritance taxes.
