Real Estate Law
The real estate market has returned to a more normal state lately after the crazier COVID years, but buying or selling homes still presents the same problems as before. Real property purchases and sales, ownership, financing, and rentals can lead to a wide variety of legal issues. As many have already found during the housing and rental boom during the COVID pandemic, purchase contract and leasing questions are not as simple as they seem, and miscommunication is unfortunately commonplace.
Whether commercial or residential, Zapalac Law Firm can help address all your needs regarding real estate transactions. We can help with purchase agreement drafting or review, enforcing real estate contract provisions, recovering option or escrow money, contract termination, and drafting demand letters to ensure your legal rights are known and respected.
If you are a realtor or a mortgage loan officer, Zapalac Law Firm can also work with you to advise on real estate issues and help defend the interests of your client(s). The most common issues we see relate to purchase-leaseback issues and escrow money disputes. In the event an argument or issue arises while you’re working to close a deal, it is always helpful to have a good lawyer on call who can quickly review related materials and give you a rundown on the next step to take.
Real property is also an important aspect of estate planning, and is usually the most valuable item that most people possess. When purchasing new property or setting up new investment homes, it is always prudent to determine how such real estate interests will pass after death. If you rent out any property as a landlord, we may also be of assistance with landlord/tenant issues that may occur.
