Below, we’ll run through some common situations where you will find one useful. But first, what does a real estate attorney do?

What can a real estate attorney do for you?

A real estate attorney will handle a host of different tasks depending on the client.

This can include drawing up contracts when sales are being completed or creating a range of legal documents such as financial agreements, leases, and so on.

Not only that, but an NJ real estate attorney can help negotiate good deals for clients. Along with this, we’re capable of reviewing sales transactions and identifying any problems that might be present.

We can represent clients if things get taken to court, ensuring that your best interests are protected.

When do you need a real estate lawyer?

As you can see, an attorney can do lots of things for you.

So, when will you need one?

Here are some common situations where a real estate attorney will provide you with some much-needed help:

When you’re buying a property

Regardless of whether you’re buying a residential property or investing in commercial buildings, it helps to have an NJ real estate attorney by your side.

We can help draw up the initial contracts to ensure that the purchase goes through with no snags. With an attorney on your side, you have peace of mind you’re buying a property that won’t present any issues.

Because of our experience, we can check that the building meets all the current regulations, ensuring that you don’t invest in something with hidden problems.

The overall result is you buy properties with more confidence.

You get exactly what you want from the purchase, and the seller receives precisely what they’re after. The whole process can go much smoother.

When you’re selling a property

You will benefit from having an NJ real estate attorney when selling any property.

We will handle many legal issues and can draw up different documents.

Our goal is to help the sale go through, ensuring that the right contracts are developed and that you’re protected if the buyer pulls out after signing.

When you need help with commercial leases

If you’re dealing with commercial real estate, then you definitely need to call an experienced real estate attorney.

Amongst the many things we do, we can help with commercial leases for landlords and tenants. If you’re a landlord, we will help you construct leases for tenants to sign.

These documents will include all the correct details, ensuring that you provide tenants with all their rights, and make it clear what’s expected from them.

Similarly, if you’re a tenant, we can help check your lease to make sure the landlord isn’t overcharging you or breaching your rights.

If they are, we can help represent you if you want to sue them.

When you’re involved in a foreclosure

The technical definition of a foreclosure is that it is a home that belongs to the bank, but used to belong to a homeowner.

Typically, foreclosures happen when you struggle to afford mortgage payments. You can no longer keep up with your payments, which means the bank seizes your property to cover your debts.

In this scenario, a real estate attorney will play a vital role. Our firm has represented both banks and borrowers in these situations.

As the borrower, we provide legal representation to help make life as hard as possible from whoever is foreclosing your property.

This includes looking for any flaws in the foreclosure process, along with trying to negotiate with your lender to reach an agreement that prevents them from going ahead and foreclosing your home.

We represent financial institutions and banks in foreclosing a property. In this scenario, we do all we can to make sure you follow the correct proceedings when foreclosing.

We represent you in court, and we will file a lawsuit for you. So, if you’re involved in either side of a foreclosure, then you should come to us for help.

Likewise, if you’re interested in buying a foreclosed property from a bank, then we will provide legal help for this.

When you need a land application

At Donnelly & Warner, we also represent commercial clients that are looking for land use applications.

We will support you as you submit your applications to local and county boards.

As a result, we make it more likely that they will accept your application.

When you’re taken to trial

We represent lots of different clients, including commercial landlords, businesses, and real estate brokers.

Therefore, we know that specific issues can crop up, meaning you’re taken to trial. Brokers are faced with employment issues and disputes involving fraud.

Businesses may face problems relating to land applications or building regulations. Regardless of what the issue is, we’re here to represent you when you get taken to trial.

A real estate attorney can defend you if someone is filing a claim against you, ensuring that a fair outcome ensues.

Likewise, if you want to take someone else to trial, then we can represent you here. The bottom line is that an NJ real estate attorney can help you in many situations.

It doesn’t matter if we’re dealing with commercial or residential real estate; we’re here to help you.
