Buying Real Estate

Buying Real Estate Today is More Challenging than Ever!

Buying Real Estate, be it a home or commercial property is generally the largest and most significant purchase you make. Real property can be complicated, raise special issues and problems not commonly understood, and if mistakes are made, can be unforgiving. With over 25 years of experience, the Reyes Law Group Real Estate Legal Team makes an important difference when negotiating contracts, processing contracts, conducting due diligence, closing transactions and protecting the rights of our clients!

When buying real estate, today’s market demands a real estate team trained to identify and deal with problems, and in some cases, problems unique for our times. Properties that may have been foreclosed illegally, those purchased for a use “not permitted,” inspections which reveal termites, asbestos, radon, lead-based paint or hazardous waste, and more – all issues which may create serious problems in your transaction. How do you resolve these problems? What are the legal consequences if the closing does not take place and what happens to the down payment? Is the closing appropriately conditioned upon the buyer obtaining financing? The list of legal issues can go on and on. When it concerns a commercial purchase, the scrutiny is heightened even further as additional questions come into play revolving around leases, tenants, estoppels, environmental issues, financing information, and more.

In today’s residential sector, “short-sales” dominate the market. A short sale allows homeowners, with bank approval, to sell the property for less than the remaining loan balance. The key is getting an approval and proper legal documentation that also “waives the deficiency” (the difference between what is owed on the house and what the house is sold for).
