Real Estate

Searching for the best real estate lawyer to handle the purchase or sale of a home, house, property or condo?

Buying or selling a home or condo is a big step for an individual or a family. It may be, and often is, the single largest financial transaction you have ever handled.

Many home buyers or sellers, and particularly first-time buyers or sellers, don't understand the terminology surrounding real estate transactions. For example, do you know the difference between "compliance" and "non-conformance". Compliance is the term used to describe a home that complies with city building codes and setback regulations; non-conformance means a home would not comply if it was rebuilt today, but it might be grandfathered because of its age.

What is a separation agreement?
A separation agreement is an alternative to going to court for individuals who want an uncontested or joint divorce. The separation agreement has far ranging implications for both parties and as such should be written by a Family Law Lawyer. Typical issues covered by a separation agreement include child custody, spousal support, property distribution, debts and pensions. One lawyer can draft the agreement for both parties, but a separate lawyer should review the agreement to ensure it protects both parties.
