Buying and Selling Real Estate
The Law Office of Mario Flores will help you thoroughly investigate whether a real estate transactions can be pursued or completed. How many times have you have heard of family members of friends who entered into a real estate transaction without conducting due diligence (basic research).
Often, this can result in not only the loss of a great deal of money, but it can also mean the loss of your property. We will assist you in conducting the due diligence needed to make sure the transaction is feasible and to your benefit.
On other occasions, we have had sellers self-finance their own real estate transaction without incorporating the appropriate documents such as a real estate contract, promissory note, deed of trust, warranty deeds with vendor’s lien or a UCC-1 financing statement to their detriment.
Failure to obtain the requisite documentation can prevent the seller from pursuing remedies to a failed transaction. We have also had situations where our clients have tried to acquire land from an owner who is still paying a mortgage on the property and the mortgage payer fails to notify the bank or fails to make payments to the bank.
The outcome of such transactions usually results in the loss of investment, down payment and hard work in trying to acquire the intended real estate. Before making any major investment, contact our office to ensure that your rights are protected and goals are met while handling a real estate transaction.
Transferring Real Estate
Although we believe that everyone should have their basic estate planning documents through a will or living trust to protect them from unforeseen circumstances, there are ways to transfer real estate to your loved ones outside of the probate process. Please consult our office to identify the various ways to ensure your loved ones receive the property you intend them to have.
Clearing Title to Transfer Property
Unfortunately, many people are left with clouded title issues which may prevent the transfer of property due to prior deaths. Our law office will help you clear the title issues to your property to ensure it can be conveyed as provided by the law. Sometimes a family’s real estate is their sole asset so it is important to make arrangements for the proper transfer of the asset prior to death.
