Residential Property and Real Estate Law

Real estate investment is complicated and a major decision to contemplate and make in regards to when, where, and how.  Whether the transaction involves commercial or residential property, any minor oversight can result in severe, long-term legal repercussions.  To effectively protect your real estate investment, your attorney must know the business of real estate as well as your specific, particular issues.  Our success emanates from our experience, but also in prudently reviewing clients' real estate documents and transaction histories in order to protect them from possible legal liabilities.

We represent buyers, sellers, landlords, and tenants in sale and leasing negotiations, property development, homeowners associations, property management companies, and investment property in disposing of office buildings, industrial properties, multi-family properties and undeveloped land.  We are committed to providing our clients with service and results-oriented legal representation while guiding them through the complicated maze of regulatory, financial, and legal hurdles they may encounter.

Bibby, McWilliams & Kearney understands the business of real estate, which enables us to provide a higher level of legal representation.  We proficiently handle the details of acquisition and sale of our clients’ properties, including drafting purchase and sale agreements, reviewing title documents and surveys, and negotiating operating and management agreements.  Further, we regularly advise and assist our clients with proper business entity formation and agreements for effective asset management and liability protection.  When negotiations become adversarial, our firm readily represents property owners, homeowners associations, and management companies with their related litigation and dispute resolution matters.

Unfortunately, not all real estate transactions are successful, resulting in losses and damage to property, tangible or intangible.  We assist our clients with evictions, contract disputes, mechanics lien and construction disputes, eminent domain proceedings, title disputes, loan service and foreclosure issues, and receivership matters.  Real property litigation often involves very sensitive timing, notice, and disclosure requirements, as well as strict procedures established by the courts.  We stay ahead of the statutes, regulations, and deadlines, cutting down the time our client's property is held up in a complicated eviction, boundary dispute, or other cloud-causing proceeding.

Owning property can be a complicated hassle, but also one of the most rewarding and stable investments you can make.
