Residential Law

There is a wide range of situations that fall into the residential law category; we can help you out with all of them.

Foreclosures

There are many circumstances that can cause a homeowner to find themselves so far behind on mortgage payments that their lender will petition for foreclosure. A court will issue a ruling based on the terms of repayment set forth in the home’s mortgage documents. When a home is foreclosed upon, it can be sold through a public sale or auction.

Landlord / Tenant Laws

In order to regulate relationships between landlords and their tenants, a number of laws and regulations have been put into place. These laws can differ between municipalities and therefore, can get very confusing for both tenants and landlords. We offer help to both sides. For landlords, we help with writing and reviewing leases or evicting a tenant in a clean and compliant way. For the tenants, we can help with everything from security deposit disputes to making sure your landlord has followed the proper process when threatening eviction.

Residential Real Estate Transactions & Disputes

Buying or selling a home can be done on your own, but it is a much easier process if you have the professional help. Our job is to help you through each step of the way, from listing your home to drawing out and preparing the proper documents.

We can help with disputes over boundaries, property ownership and the law of eminent domain. Finding yourself in a situation where someone else is claiming they have the right to your property, especially the government, can be a scary thing. We’re here to make sure that you have the best chance of maintaining a hold on your property.

Home Owners Associations

Home Owners Associations (HOA) are put into place to make sure that a community is the most pleasant it can be for its residents. But there are times when a homeowner does not completely agree with the HOA’s rules and regulations that can lead to a HOA dispute. We can help you sort through the HOA law to make sure that neither side is overstepping their boundaries.

We can also help you out if you are developing a new HOA and ensure that your HOA adheres to all guidelines and registers with the state.
