To most people, the family home, farm, or recreational property is their largest and most emotionally treasured holding. The Schatzman Law Firm represents individuals, families, and trustees in personal and commercial real estate matters.
Owning real estate is both a dream and an investment for many people. The process of acquiring real estate involves legal issues that may seem overwhelming. Enlisting the help of a skilled attorney can ease the burden of legal issues and help you protect your dream investment.
We can assist you in buying or selling property in all aspects of the purchase or sale. Since buying or selling real estate often involves more people than just the buyer and the seller, we can help navigate the relationships between all parties involved. Because there are so many parties and steps, such as agents, inspectors, appraisers, title companies, government agencies and representatives, and more, even one mistake could disrupt the whole process. Our team can help you through the whole life cycle of your real estate, including any disputes that may come up. Some areas of expertise include, but are not limited to:
Sale/Purchase: You may choose whether or not to utilize a real estate agent to sell your home. No matter your choice, an attorney can help you ensure that your documents are drafted properly to protect you and comply with local, state, and federal regulations.
Commercial Real Estate: Our skilled team at The Schatzman Law Firm can help with commercial real estate matters ranging from purchase and sale agreements and lease preparation, review, and negotiation, to zoning issues and redevelopment matters.
Property Taxes: Sometimes market conditions change, and county tax assessments are not changed accordingly. If you feel, as a homeowner, that your property has been over-assessed for the purpose of real estate taxes, you maintain the right to appeal. The Schatzman Law Firm can assist you with this, and use best efforts to help you reduce your local property tax bill.
