The decision to purchase or sell a parcel of real property is an important financial commitment. For most people, real property is the most valuable asset they will ever own. All too often, buyers or sellers don’t think about consulting with an attorney until the transaction has gone wrong, and by then, it is often too late to fix the problem. At Datsopoulos, MacDonald & Lind, P.C. we subscribe to the maxim that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Whether you are buying a small house for rental income or selling a multi-million dollar ranch property, we can help to protect your interests, maximize your investment and ensure that your experience is hassle free.
Real Estate Sales and Acquisitions
Our attorneys have years of experience in reviewing buy-sell agreements, lease agreements, easements, covenants and restrictions, land use and zoning regulations, and many other issues that could impact your real estate transaction. We can help to ensure that your investment isn’t affected by problems with mold or moisture, drainage issues, easements or rights-of-way, or undisclosed structural damage. We have successfully guided our clients through the complexities of subdivision approval, condominium declarations, formation of homeowner’s associations and boundary disputes. Our attorneys can assist you with problems with liens, levies, property taxes and other problems with title and title insurance to ensure that your investment isn’t improperly encumbered.
Real Estate Litigation
We also have a team of experienced real estate litigation attorneys to assist you in all types of real estate disputes. We have successfully represented clients in actions to compel specific performance of a real estate contract, for failure to disclose construction defects or other adverse material facts concerning the property, and for negligence on the part of the real estate agent for failing to properly represent the buyer’s or seller’s interests.
We’ve advocated for clients who have been harmed by sellers, lenders, appraisers and inspectors in connection with real estate investments. Our land use attorneys have decades of experience in the areas of zoning and code enforcement, subdivision regulations, environmental regulations, as well as toxic torts and pollution.
