Providing Solutions For Your Property Issues

We represent commercial and residential property owners, developers, buyers, sellers, and tenants in various real estate transactions and disputes. Our real estate related legal services include:

Residential transactions: Buying or selling can be a complicated and stressful process, even if you have never done it before. Our lawyers can help you navigate the purchase or sale of your home and can help you prepare and explain closing documents, explain mortgage documentation generated by your lender, ensure financials are appropriately divided between the parties, draft the appropriate deed of conveyance, ensure all the proper documents are completed, and represent you at the closing. We also assist families with estate planning real estate needs. When you work with our team, we ensure the property has a clear title and meets Minnesota building standards, so you can feel confident with your purchase.

Landlord & Tenant Issues: Whether you are drafting a lease, involved in an eviction, or believe the other party has not lived up to their obligations as part of a lease contract, it is important to work with a lawyer who can guide you through the process. Landlord-tenant law might seem simple, but in practice, the law and its consequences can be complex and costly. Our attorneys have the experience to protect your interests and rights of both land landlords and tenants.

Real estate litigation: In addition to representing clients in transactional matters, our real estate attorneys have experience representing clients in court. Our real estate litigation attorneys represent clients in litigation that involves leases, construction defects, breaches of contract, relocation benefits, property line disputes, mortgage foreclosures, and mechanic's lien foreclosures.

Boundary disputes: Boundary and title disputes at best are very unpleasant and worse, very hostile. Should a real estate transaction in which you are involved have a boundary or title dispute, immediately seek legal assistance before costs and emotions spiral out of control.

Our real estate lawyers have experience working through issues related to boundaries, title and property rights. We work with clients to resolve real property issues when ownership lines are blurred, in cases of adverse possession, from divorce or family transfers, disputes with oral agreements, from obstructions or hindrances to property rights or when a property owner dies without a valid will (intestate).

Such disputes can occur from flawed deeds, unmarked boundary lines, unwritten title transfer or from previous owners who did not raise any objection to a property infringement. Easements, when not properly documented or adhered to, can also turn into a contentious issue between the property owner and the business or individual who needs access over the property.

Commercial real estate: Commercial property sales or purchases can involve many layers and multiple parties. From property codes to contract drafting and zoning disputes, landmines abound for the unwary and the uninformed. Whether you are looking to buy, sell, lease or finance, our capable team will guide you to a favorable outcome in a timely and cost-effective manner.
