Residential Real Estate

Buying or selling a home is probably the most significant financial transaction that anyone undertakes in their lifetime. While this can be an exciting time, without the proper legal guidance, the process can be frustrating, overwhelming and more expensive than necessary.  Even if there are no obvious disagreements between the Buyer and Seller it is advisable for each party to enter into real estate transactions with their own attorney who can help steer them away from common pitfalls and make the transaction an enjoyable experience.

We offer our clients broad-based real estate legal advice and representation in the following transactions: 

  • Real Estate Sales Transactions
  • Closings 
  • Construction Contracts
  • Leases

In addition to real estate transactions, we assist with the following residential and commercial real estate issues:

Landlord tenant relations are heavily governed not only by the lease between the landlord and tenant, but also by specific laws that often differ between one municipality and another.

We can represent landlords throughout the entire range of issues that arise under landlord and tenant law, from drafting and reviewing leases and land contracts to litigation or mediation of landlord / tenant disputes.

Landlords

If you are a landlord and feel you need to start the eviction process or take collection action on unpaid rent or the cost of repairing damage to the property, you should consult with an attorney who will explain how to avoid headaches by taking these actions in full compliance with the law.

Once you contact our offices, we will immediately begin the eviction process. We will file the eviction paperwork the same day we receive the notice. Our goal is to get non-paying tenants out of the property, and new paying tenants into the property, as soon as possible.

Tenants

Both landlords and tenants have rights. In addition to representing landlords, we also represent tenants who believe their rights are not being respected.

If you are threatened with eviction, we can help you ensure that your landlord follows the proper process and meets the requirements for eviction. It may be possible to extend the time constraints or even fight the validity of the eviction.

If your landlord has not provided you with a safe and habitable residence, ensured that you have quiet enjoyment of the property or made reasonable repairs, there are processes you can follow to correct these deficiencies. We will help you get the remedy you need.

We can also represent tenants in security deposit disputes.

A deed is a document which stipulates the owner of a particular real estate property. The property may be a building structure and/or piece of land. A deed specifies the names of the previous and current owners, and a legal description of the property.

When the property is being sold, willed, given to another party other than the current owner, the deed is being legally transferred from current owner to a new owner. Real Estate Property cannot be legally transferred without having something in writing, which in most cases is a deed.

The most common types of deed transfers are:

  • Quitclaim deed transfers: Quitclaim deeds transfer or "quit" any interest in real property. The grantor may not be in title at all, so the grantee cannot assume that the grantor has any real interest to convey. However, if the grantor were, say, married to the owner of the property, signing and recording a quitclaim deed in favor of the spouse would transfer any interest the grantor may have in the property to the spouse.

  • Grant deed transfers: A deed to real estate containing an implied promise that the person transferring the property actually has good title and that the property is not encumbered in any way, except as described in the deed. This is the most commonly used type of deed.

  • Warranty deed transfers: A warranty deed transfers ownership and explicitly promises the buyer that the transferor has good title to the property, meaning it is free of liens or claims of ownership. The transferor guarantees that he or she will compensate the buyer if that turns out to be wrong. The warranty deed may make other promises as well, to address particular problems with the transaction.

Law Offices of Jeffrey A. Herzog, P.A., can help you choose which type of deed transfer may fit your particular situation, help you property draft or review deed transfer documents, and assist you with any other real estate or estate law legal issues you may have.
