At Gould Killian LLP, our attorneys have handled hundreds of real estate transactions. We take the time to give each transaction the personal attention our clients deserve. Our services are varied and expansive, and we have knowledgeable attorneys and paralegals to handle all aspects of commercial and residential real estate matters. In addition to purchases and sales, our attorneys represent mortgage brokers and banks in loan transactions, title insurance companies and property owners in title disputes and quiet title actions, and can help with filing or defending mechanics liens, prejudgment remedy attachments and judgment liens. We also handle many landlord tenant issues, lease negotiations, and eviction (Summary Process) actions.
Residential Real Estate
Whether you are ready to purchase your first home, a vacation home, invest in income producing property or want to refinance, we can guide you through the process. Buying property can be overwhelming, and there are many factors to consider, which may differ depending on whether you buy a house or a condominium. Let one of our lawyers help simplify things for you. We can negotiate and draft a purchase contract, help you through the inspection and mortgage processes, make sure you have the proper insurance, and explain all of the paperwork at the closing. We are also very familiar with the intricacies of title insurance and title disputes. If you own a home but run into title problems or disputes over boundary lines, if your neighbor claims that your fence or driveway is on their property, or if someone claims an interest in your land that you dispute, then call us for help. We have handled all of these situations and more. If, for example, you find that a mechanics lien or attachment has been filed against your property, or discover old liens on your property form before you even owned it, discover an encumbrance or an easement that hadn’t been disclosed, or need to file a quiet title action, we can help you.
As a seller, you can be assured that Gould Killian can handle every aspect of your sale, including obtaining releases, clearing title, preparing the deed and other documents necessary to properly convey title. If you are listing your house “for sale by owner”, we can help with the contract and other items real estate agents might otherwise handle. If you do have an agent, we can step in when needed to negotiate inspection issues, remedy title issues, and generally make the process go as smoothly as possible. We have also helped many clients who find the perfect lot and want to build their dream home! We can advise you on all aspects of purchasing vacant land, negotiate building contracts, and closing construction mortgages.
Commercial Real Estate
Gould Killian attorneys have extensive experience in handling all aspects of commercial real estate transactions and other related legal issues. Some of our clients include owners of office buildings, shopping centers, apartment buildings, and other commercial properties. The purchase of a commercial piece of property can be complex and experience can make all the difference. Knowledgeable attorneys can help navigate the due diligence, the inspection process, environment considerations and possible survey, building code and permit issues. Our clients often find that the financing or purchase of a building is tied to the start of a new business, or changes happening within an existing business, and our experience in both business and real estate law enable us to seamlessly complete all of the intricacies of several transactions at once. We often negotiate commercial leases, including the leasing of office buildings, and handle issues related to the leases during their terms. Our ability to see a case through from lease creation to litigation if it becomes necessary, ensures that our clients’ varying needs are met with consistency and competency, and eliminates the expense of having to educate another firm on a particular matter to take over at the litigation stage.
