What are the benefits of having an attorney review your home purchase contract?
If you purchase a home without a clear understanding of your legal rights, you may not get the full benefit of a fair bargain. Having an attorney draft or review your contract can help to avoid disputes, delays and misunderstandings. An attorney can:
- Review the agreement for inconsistencies or errors
- Review title searches and cure any defects
- Examine supplementary documentation to verify compliance with the law
- Negotiate terms to protect against foreseeable issues
A knowledgeable lawyer can facilitate a smooth and efficient transaction, and I will ensure your goals and wishes are represented and prioritized.
What are the fundamental components of a commercial real estate transaction?
The financial investment, inherent risk and intricate legal requirements of commercial real estate purchases add many layers of complexity to the process. Consequently, you need a strong and vocal advocate. Key elements of a commercial real estate purchase include:
- Evaluating transfer documents
- Negotiating the purchase price and contingencies
- Reviewing inspections
- Reviewing land use and zoning restrictions
- Reviewing environmental reports
- Reviewing seller warranties and representations
I will identify and take decisive action to resolve any potential issues and maintain consistent communication with you until the transaction is complete.
When can a landlord evict a tenant?
Under current California law, tenants who have lived on a rental property for at least 12 months may be subject to eviction if the landlord has just cause, such as:
- Non-payment of rent
- Violation of the lease
- Criminal activity on the property
- Unauthorized subletting
- Denying the landlord access
- Refusing to sign a new lease that has similar terms to the prior lease
However, certain municipalities, including San Francisco, have ordinances that place greater restrictions on a landlord’s right to remove a tenant for just cause.
Can you stop a foreclosure?
Property ownership is highly valued and protected, and owners facing foreclosure do have several potential remedies to resolve the case. The most common ways to halt a foreclosure include:
- A Chapter 13 bankruptcy
- A loan modification
- A load forbearance agreement
- A short sale of the property
- A deed in lieu of foreclosure
Avoiding foreclosure can be tricky, and I will determine the best plan of action to protect your interests.
