Real Estate Law

Having an experienced real estate attorney guide you through a sale or purchase will protect your rights and your investment.

The real estate lawyers of Deitch & Perone have been representing first time home buyers and experienced home buyers who are purchasing and selling property for over twenty years.

Commercial Real Estate

Commercial real estate law is a category of real estate law that establishes standards for commercial leases and the purchase and sale of commercial real estate. Commercial lease lawyers who are familiar with commercial lease terms can help you negotiate potential lease contracts and avoid future pitfalls.

Purchase And Sale Of A Residence

The purchase and sale of a residence or home can be done completely on your own, but is more often executed through an experienced broker or agent. While a broker can make the sale of your house much easier, it also brings contracts and commissions into the mix. If you decide to sell through an agent, real estate lawyers can help you negotiate your contract with the buyer before it is signed.

Landlord And Tenant

Landlord and tenant law is at the foundation of many real estate transactions, including eviction, lease signing, subletting and more. It is difficult to be a successful landlord in any situation, but familiarizing yourself with real estate law gives you firm ground to stand on should a dispute arise. A good grip on the law is important for tenants as well.

Title And Boundary Disputes

Title and boundary disputes center on issues of property ownership: Who owns a property and where are that property's boundaries? Experienced boundary lawyers can assist you if the public record of your property's boundaries differs from the boundaries agreed upon with your neighbor. In fact, if you treat a certain line as a boundary line for long enough, it may legally become the property's boundary line under acquiescence to a boundary line law.

Zoning, Planning And Land Use

Zoning, planning and land use laws give local governments control over the way that land is used — usually with the goal of creating uniform neighborhoods and areas. Zoning laws can be very complex, and many types of zoning exist to regulate building. The violation of zoning laws can be a serious (and expensive) offense, and those accused of violating zoning laws should speak with local real estate lawyers in their area.
