A Real Estate transaction is the process whereby rights in a unit of property (or designated real estate) is transferred between two or more parties. Transactional Real Estate consists of arms-length sales and/or conveyances of residential or commercial real property, non-arms-length transactions between family members or friends, short sales, transfers of fractional interests, such as time-shares, among many other types of transactions. Our firm can competently assist you with your transactional real estate needs. Real Estate transactions can often become complicated, as issues may arise from a financing, contractual and/or marketability of title perspective. In these situations, the advice of an experienced real estate attorney can certainly provide the necessary comfort and guidance to successfully close a transaction, or, on occasion, terminate a transaction due to potential risks and pitfalls.
