Putnam County Real Estate Lawyer
At Meyer & Spencer, we have a thriving real estate practice. Our attorneys focus in two areas—institutional lending and Commercial/Residential real estate. Whatever your real estate needs, and whatever type of property you are purchasing, our Putnam County real estate lawyers can help.
The home buying process is confusing, especially for first-time buyers. Our lawyers can help you through the entire process, from negotiation to drafting a sale contract that protects your rights. We can also help look at title issues and attend the closing with you.
Although some buyers try to close a home on their own, so many different things can go wrong. What if there is a gap in the chain of title? What if the inspection comes back with problems? Often, there are ways to work around these issues, but you need to understand your options and there is no substitute for an experienced lawyer’s guidance.
Selling a home brings with it different considerations than when you are buying a home. Depending on the state of the housing market, you might need to negotiate with potential buyers and be prepared to make compromises. However, you need to move the closing along as quickly as possible before the buyer has a chance to back out.
Sellers have quite a bit of work to do before they can get to the closing table and receive their check. At Meyer & Spencer, we can handle the paperwork so that the closing goes as smoothly as possible.
Commercial Real Estate
Commercial real estate has its own unique characteristics. In particular, commercial leases must be carefully analyzed so that a tenant understands their legal obligations with respect to common areas, as well as limitations on the landlord’s ability to rent to a competitor.
Few business owners are prepared to work their way through the maze of legal documents that are part of any commercial real estate transaction. If you are in the market for commercial space, you should meet with an attorney right away to help determine your needs.
Lenders, large and small, need experienced legal professionals who can help them meet regulatory requirements and package mortgage products that protect their rights. Our institutional lending attorneys have worked with many lenders, from small to large, including Wachovia, Citibank, Wells Fargo, and JPMorgan Chase.
We have experience with first mortgage, second mortgage, assignments, and home equity lines of credit, among other mortgage products. If you have a question, we are happy to advise you.
