Residential Real Estate

Your home is your castle and possibly the biggest investment of your life. Whether you live in a single family home, townhome or condo, trailer or boat your home is your sanctuary. Whether you rent or own you have legal rights to enjoy your living space.

Disputes can arise over buying and selling, building and remodeling, easements, lot line and zoning, or annoying neighbors. When you go home, you want your home to be a sanctuary. Any of the issues mentioned above can diminish your enjoyment of your home. We can help alleviate problems you have with your house.

We have experience in dealing real estate transfers in the context of a Trust or probate, especially when a sibling or child of an elderly or mentally comprised individual believes that elder was unduly influenced into transferring title of their home. If you are a beneficiary of Trust where the family home is in dispute, we can help guide you through legal system to ensure the elderly parent or relative's wishes are fulfilled. We have successfully filed Heggsted petitions.
