Real estate is generally one of the most significant investments you will make in your lifetime. Whether you’re purchasing a single family home or buying an investment property you may find you need the advice of a real estate attorney.
Landlord Tenant Services
When you’re renting a property there are certain disclosures that must be made to potential tenants. Lease agreements must be put in place to protect your rights as a landlord and to ensure the tenant understands their rights. Attorney Harlan will help prepare your lease agreements to ensure your rights are protected and the necessary legal disclosures are made to tenants.
When tenants feel their landlords are not acting in good faith, they have certain legal rights to withhold rent and take other action. Your landlord has a legal obligation to ensure your home is safe to live in.
When a landlord or tenant has violated the terms of a lease agreement Attorney Harlan is available to help them determine what legal options are available.
Simple Contract Review
Before signing any contract, it’s always a good idea to have it reviewed by a skilled attorney. It’s imperative to ensure your rights are protected with any contract; contracts can have hidden clauses which can cause you problems later on. Never sign any contract without fully understanding what you are signing.
When you’re purchasing real estate, the most important thing you can do is ensure the title to the property is free from any claims or defects. A title defect or a mechanics lien left on a title can impact your rights as an owner. Attorney Harlan will conduct a thorough review of your title to ensure your property rights are protected.
