Real Estate Advice For Property Owners And Renters
Northern California, especially San Francisco and Silicon Valley, is one of the nation's hottest real estate markets, which means that renters and property owners across the state face many risks and many opportunities. Walker & Reed, P.C., can assist in both commercial and residential real estate transactions — whether it's a rent dispute with your tenant over a studio apartment or the sale of a large commercial building.
Our real estate attorneys routinely draft documents, negotiate transactions, and advise clients with respect to real estate leases, including complex commercial leases. We also assist our clients with numerous types of real estate transactions, including the sale and purchase of real estate, landlord/tenant issues, and related matters.
Set The Terms When You Buy Or Sell A Home
It's no small feat to buy a house in California's expensive real estate market, whether it's a home or an investment in your future, or both. Because property is so expensive in Northern California, it's crucial to draft precise legal documentation that helps both buyer and seller reach a fair price.
We advise sellers in purchase agreements and sale agreements, review buyer's comments, and counsel the seller as to acceptable changes. We will also assist purchasers to review the title condition of the property, negotiating documents presented by the seller, and aid in the closing process.
Lawyers Do What Real Estate Agents Can't
Unlike some states, California does not require the involvement of a lawyer in all real estate transactions. But a lawyer provides services that a real estate agent cannot, and can make sure that a transaction's significant paperwork is all in order.
We assist clients in all of Northern California including San Jose, Silicon Valley, the San Francisco Bay Area and the Monterey Peninsula.
