Residential Real Estate

One of the most common issues KingBarnes deals with are issues that arise in connection with the purchase or sale of residential real estate or the construction of a new home. Although you are not required to use a residential real estate attorney when buying or selling a home, the law surrounding the process is complicated and it is wise to consult with a lawyer to make sure you are informed about potential issues and road blocks.

Some common issues that arise during the purchase and sale process relate to the closing date and what happens if one or both parties are unable to close on time, what financing options are available and what happens if the financing does not go through, what defect disclosures are required, what warranties are conveyed with the home and how to protect yourself from a title defect.

Building a new home or modifying an existing home presents additional problems such as compliance with zoning and construction laws and legal disputes with contractors. A residential real estate lawyer can help guide you through these areas.

When it comes to residential real estate, single-family, and condominium transactions, KingBarnes will help you with the following:

  • Prepare initial purchase contract or review the purchase contract including offers to purchase, counteroffers, amendments, and notices
  • Prepare Letter Agreements
  • Negotiate terms with opposing counsel, real estate agent, or other party

  • Monitor mortgage, home inspection, termite and survey contingencies, bulk sale and deadlines
  • Review disclosures, condominium documents and reports
