Real Estate Sales and Foreclosures
When purchasing a home, whether you are a first-time buyer or an experienced buyer, you want an experienced real estate lawyer on your side to review all documents and assist you with any issues that may arise. Only a qualified real estate lawyer can help you to interpret the verbiage of contracts and to make informed decisions in your case.
A real estate lawyer can educate you on your legal rights as a consumer. These include:
- The right to select who will be helping you purchase your home, such as a broker
- The right to use the California Residential Purchase Agreement for making or accepting offers
- The right to have an attorney review all documents
- The right to know an agent’s relationship to the seller
- The right to decline to purchase within 17 days of accepting an offer if you find a physical issue with the home
- The right to negotiate repairs
- The right to inspect the home or conduct tests
- The right to copy all documents and have them explained to you
- The right to move in once the contract is signed and all provisions on your end are met
- The right to back off from a purchase, though there may be a monetary penalty
If you have purchased a home with a mortgage and are having difficulty paying your bills, you are in danger of foreclosure. When you are 90 or more days late on your mortgage payment, the bank may initiate the foreclosure process. Once the bank files for foreclosure, the bank is not required to negotiate with you in order for you to keep your home. A skilled real estate lawyer can help you fight the bank, renegotiate new payments, and save your home from bank seizure.
California housing code dictates the standard of living that landlords must adhere to when providing property for rent. If a landlord violates provisions of the housing code, he or she can be liable for fines. In addition, the tenant may be able to break the lease and/or sue the landlord for damages.
California landlord/tenant law also dictates the proper procedure to follow for renting a home and evicting a tenant. This includes how much can be charged for a security deposit, which apartments are subject to rent control, and when and how to evict a tenant. If you are facing a landlord/tenant issue, there may be hundreds or thousands of dollars on the line. You need to seek the guidance of a trained landlord/tenant attorney immediately.
When an individual passes away, his or her assets and debts become the estate. The estate then passes through probate. The estate can be distributed according to a will or, in the absence of a will, can be divided according to California’s laws of intestate succession. Often times, real property is a large portion of a decedent’s estate. There may be multiple heirs with claims to the house. When the past or future ownership of the house is contested, a skilled real estate attorney can assist the estate administrator with determining the right course of action.
