Experienced real estate lawyers help ensure your valuable resources are not wasted

Whether conducted for residential or commercial purposes, a real estate transaction is one of the most important business deals a person or business makes. Every piece of property is unique, and people invest a great deal of time and resources into locating the ideal property for their purposes, whether as an investment or for immediate use. Aside from the cost of the transaction itself, parties expend significant time and money just getting to the point where the deal can be consummated. There are property surveys, title searches, inspections, earnest money deposits and escrow accounts, repairs and modifications that must be made, and financing that must be obtained, all before the transaction can be finalized at closing. Any misunderstanding or misstep along the way can derail the deal, causing a loss of time and money and a great deal of frustration.

Our real estate lawyers know how to get things done right the first time, without the misunderstandings and misinterpretations of inexpert draftsmanship that inevitably lead to litigation. A real estate attorney at Johnson, Westra, Broecker, Whittaker & Newitt, P.C. can provide comprehensive assistance throughout every phase of a real estate transaction, including:
