Real Estate & Real Property Law

Real estate may be the largest investment you will make in your lifetime. Weir Bowen is here to help with all aspects of residential and commercial real estate, including purchases and sales, encumbrances, co-ownership, and litigation.

In an ordinary real estate transaction, the buyer and seller will typically enter into a purchase agreement with each other. You should contact our firm early in that process so we can review the contract before both parties sign an agreement. We can advise you of your rights and obligations under the agreement, and work with you to make sure that you can meet the obligations.

Our firm can also assist by:

  1. Removing any unpermitted “encumbrances” like mortgages and liens
  2. Ensuring you are properly named on title
  3. Performing tax searches to ensure there are no outstanding taxes
  4. Taking instructions from your bank to draft mortgage and transfer documents
  5. Ensuring you have title insurance, if necessary
  6. Ensuring you have a real property report or assisting you in ordering one, if you’re selling your property

Our lawyers will personally meet with you to explain the process and each document you sign. We have experience with all types of residential closings and can assist on a rush basis. Our firm has a number of experienced litigators who can assist when disputes arise over land, regarding ownership, title defects, property defects, claims against inspectors or professional advisors, registered or unregistered interests, caveats, builders’ liens, or even foreclosures.

Real Property law can be complex and involves a number of different laws and statutes. To protect your interests, it is important that you hire a lawyer who understands how all of those laws and statutes interact and affect your rights. We can assist you by reviewing your matters, advising you of those rights, and representing you in advocating for those rights if necessary.
