How Can Rochester Law Center Help Me With
My Property Transactions?
Contract Review And Drafting
Our Real Estate Attorneys help our clients ensure that their contracts, purchase agreements, land contracts, deeds, and title work adhere to Michigan Law and won’t cause headaches down the line. Additionally, we address and negotiate any changes that need to be made or contingencies that need to be added in order to protect your interests in a transaction.
Uncovering or Removing Liens On A Property
Before you buy a property, you need to be sure that it is free of liens or judgements to make sure you are actually receiving what you are paying for. We can help you do this by conducting a title search that will uncover whether or not the seller needs to pay to remove a lien or has outstanding court judgement on the property. We also help negotiate any contingencies with the seller if a lien or judgement is found, and we can help remove liens, encumbrances, or other clouds on the title to the property.
Transfer of Property and Deed Filing
If a deed is not properly drafted or a property is not properly transferred, it could have unforeseen legal and tax implications for the buyer or the seller which could negatively impact the profitability of your investment. When a property is transferred using a deed, many factors come into play that can affect your ownership rights: the type of deed used, what warranties are given, where the property is located, how title is held, who the listed grantees and grantors are, how prior transfers occurred, whether a party went through a divorce etc. We advise our clients on possible legal and tax implications, help clear title, and also handle the filing at the appropriate county register of deeds.
Resolving Probate Issues
Often times, people believe that, because they were named in someone’s Will or Trust, they will be able to simply sell any property they were given. Frequently, it isn’t discovered until very near the closing of a real estate transaction that the seller does not yet have the legal authority to sell the property. This can result in a potential buyer walking away from the sale. When this happens, clients and real estate agents need to act quickly to follow the proper procedures to gain legal access to the property. We step in to draft and process the paperwork, and to follow the legal protocols to ensure that your closing can proceed smoothly. Often, this can be done in as little as 24 hours.
When buying a commercial property, the assistance of a Real Estate Attorney is extremely important. There are many contingencies and pitfalls in commercial sales that aren’t common in residential purchases. Commercial Purchasers need to be particularly wary of environmental issues, municipal zoning regulations, city ordinances, financing issues, and due diligence traps. We can also help you obtain a tax identification number, establish a business entity (LLC, Corporation, or Sole Proprietorship), structure your purchase for the best tax treatment, and register your business with the State of Michigan. These are all areas we can help you with to make sure you are compliant with the state and city regulations and to minimize your tax burden.
