We provide guidance and representation in many areas of real estate law. Real estate transactions can be overwhelming for someone unfamiliar with the complexities and nuances of this broad area of law. Having an experienced, knowledgeable attorney on your side can be invaluable when it comes to protecting your rights and accomplishing your goals.
Our real estate clients include homeowners, tenants, landlords, real estate professionals, investors, and builders. We represent businesses including mortgage, finance, construction, and property management companies.
Real estate law encompasses many different types of matters. We can help with residential purchases and sales, purchase agreements, representation at closings, title issues, deeds, easements, boundary disputes, and many other legal situations commonly faced by homeowners. In addition, we handle leases and a wide range of landlord/tenant issues, representing both tenants and landlords.
Our attorneys are also experienced in more complex real estate transactions involving commercial property, real estate finance and development, commercial leases, zoning issues, condominium law, homeowners’ associations, and construction matters.
One area in particular that we specialize in is foreclosure defense. A thorough understanding of real estate law is essential for defenses involving title defects, improper assignments or transfers, or recording issues. Moreover, a strong knowledge of the applicable statutes is crucial. These include federal statutes such as the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) and the Truth in Lending Act (TILA), as well as state laws like Michigan’s foreclosure by advertisement statute.
We also assist clients with foreclosure alternatives including loan modifications, short sales, and deeds in lieu of foreclosure. We have negotiated favorable outcomes on behalf of clients throughout Michigan.
