Most people encounter real estate law only when they buy and sell a house. We can help you with that. Here in California, buying a house has become extraordinarily complicated due to our courts and our legislature. The courts have made it virtually impossible to sell a house "AS IS." The legislature has piled on disclosure requirement after disclosure requirement. To make matters worse, the standard forms of the California Association of Realtors continue to grow in number, length, and complexity as Realtors try to absolve themselves from everything that might go wrong. Then there are escrow companies and title insurance companies. It's hard to tell the forest from the trees. We will do for you what your Realtor probably will not do - among other things, we will explain to you in plain English how the CAR Residential Purchase and Sale Agreement works (you will undoubtedly be surprised), why the Transfer Disclosure Statement is unreliable, what the escow company is supposed to be doing, the role title insurance companies play, and how to protect yourself as a buyer or a seller. We can also help you with all other aspects of real estate law - for example, renting a house or a building, whether you're a tenant or a landlord , evicting a tenant, collecting unpaid rent, buying or selling a commercial building or unimproved property, resolving boundary line and easement disputes, and dealing with homeowners associations. We've successfully handled transactions and disputes in all of these areas. When you need an experienced real estate attorney, you can call on us for professional advice and decisive action. Our goal is your success and complete satisfaction with our services.
