Residential Real Estate

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, 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. At The Angell Law Firm, P.C., we can help alleviate the 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 the elder was unduly influenced into transferring the title of their home. If you are a beneficiary of trust where the family home is in dispute, we can help guide you through the legal system to ensure the elderly parent or relative’s wishes are fulfilled. We have successfully filed Heggsted petitions.
