When to Consult a Real Estate Lawyer
Outside of purchasing or selling a property, you should consult a real estate lawyer if:
- You are entering into a lease agreement or involved in a dispute over a lease. Your attorney can help to draft a lease that protects your interests and can review lease terms before you sign. You should have a lawyer look over both a residential or a commercial lease agreement. If you are involved in a dispute over an existing lease, it is even more important to consult with a real estate lawyer who has experience with litigation.
- You are entering into a construction contract or a dispute has arisen related to a construction contract. Whether you are renovating, remodeling or building a new structure, there are many different kinds of construction contracts including fixed price contracts, lump sum contracts and cost plus contracts. It is important to consult a real estate lawyer for help understanding your contract terms and negotiating a construction agreement that protects your interests. When a dispute arises, your lawyer can also represent you in negotiating a settlement or going to court to protect your investment and financial interests.
- You are involved in a land use or zoning dispute. There are many restrictions on the way that land can be used. Sometimes, restrictions are ambiguous or change after you have already purchased or begun to utilize your property. A real estate lawyer can help you to understand California zoning laws and resolve land use and zoning disputes or problems that may arise.
- You are involved in a dispute with a homeowner’s association. HOAs frequently have disputes with residents. Both parties should be represented by a real estate lawyer who can help to facilitate a compromise or who can represent your interests and help make a persuasive case in court.
