Our Real Estate Services
We help homeowners throughout the state buy or sell real property. Our team will dutifully represent you throughout the closing process and are prepared to help resolve any disputes or issues that may arise.
Our Waterbury real estate attorney can assist you with:
- Contract Disputes. We are familiar with how to draft, negotiate, and review real estate purchase agreements and lease agreements. These contracts must be carefully prepared to ensure they are enforceable and consistent with your needs and expectations. Should a conflict develop, we are prepared to go to court and will fight to obtain a swift, favorable resolution.
- Real Estate Tax Appeals. We support you in lowering your real estate taxes by lowering your real estate assessments.
- Title Disputes. You must always perform a title search before buying a property to proactively identify potential issues. Errors in public records, missing heirs, illegal deeds, liens, and other encumbrances can all cause ownership conflicts down the line. We can work to efficiently resolve these problems when they arise.
- Property Liens. One or more creditors may have liens against the home you are looking to buy or sell. When you perform a title check prior to buying a property, you may discover liens associated with previous owners may still encumber it, and these liens must be resolved before you can safely transfer ownership. In most cases, the debt associated with the line must be paid before it can be removed. Our team knows how to effectively approach these issues.
- Easement Issues. When someone has an easement, they have a right to use the property in a specific way despite not owning or possessing it. Easements can potentially interfere with an owner’s ability to fully use a purchased property, and their existence can thus jeopardize a planned sale. An easement might be created through a contractual agreement with a previous owner or as a result of government intervention. Squatters can also cause easement problems. No matter the nature of the easement, we will help you explore your legal options and work to resolve the dispute as quickly as possible.
