An important part of real estate practice is document review, advice, negotiation and drafting. Whether this involves reviewing documents that have been prepared for a client to sign or if a client wishes documents prepared by us at the inception of a transaction, our significant experience can help a client significantly. A non-inclusive list of prepared documents that an attorney should review are purchase and sale agreements (earnest money agreements), leases, easements, notes involving securitization property construction contracts, options and business sales involving real property. A properly prepared legal document can limit many issues for a client in the future.

We can act as escrow and close a transaction involving a business opportunity with or without real property. We provide a contract collection service by holding documents, processing and monitoring collection payments.

We file lien claims (construction and otherwise) on behalf of clients and perform required foreclosures.

We perform foreclosure on personal property whose debts are secured by security agreements, purchase money security agreements or other perfected security interests.

We presently represent homeowner associations in their formation, by-laws, management and formation.
