More Info

If you are ready to pursue a real estate transaction, or if you are involved in a real property dispute, legal advice is essential to understanding and protecting your valuable rights and interests. Whether it is your home or your office, you are investing in unique one-of-a-kind property. Our real estate lawyers are ready to evaluate your situation and assist with property conveyances, leases, and conflict resolution.

REAL ESTATE PURCHASES AND LEASES

Real estate is a costly investment. Whether you purchase or rent, the contracts are complex. All those legal terms fix your interests and rights. What exactly is the deal? What if it falls apart? You need knowledgeable real estate lawyers on your team in any proposed transaction.

CONDOMINIUM AND TOWNHOME DEVELOPMENTS

Homeowner Associations (HOAs) must comply with complicated laws. Our firm has experience dealing with management companies and serving HOA boards of directors. We know the ultimate intent is to protect the rights of all homeowners in a development. In our HOA representation, we strive to balance the interests of the HOA with the rights of homeowners, providing the greatest value possible to each.

JOINT OWNERSHIP AND PARTITION

Special care must be taken when creating joint ownership of real property. It may seem simple, but there can be hidden traps for the unwary, such as tax assessments, lien liabilities, and ownership disputes. Our real estate attorneys advise potential joint owners of the advantages and disadvantages of holding real property together. When disputes arise, an experienced property attorney from our firm can assist in negotiating an end to the ownership and, if necessary, can seek a court resolution in a partition proceeding.

DEEDS AND QUIET TITLE ACTIONS

Title to real property is recorded in “deeds” and the technical language must be carefully prepared to avoid a cloud on title. If there is a title defect, it needs to be cleared. Our real estate lawyers are experienced in deed evaluation, and we have successfully brought quiet title actions and Heggstad petitions to cure the problem.

ADJOINING LANDOWNERS

While “good fences make good neighbors” (R. Frost), what happens when the relationship breaks down? Adjoining landowners have boundary disputes and conflicts over easement and access rights. Tree roots may grow right under that fence and uproot the next-door foundation–your home’s foundation.

EMINENT DOMAIN

Much of California’s land is privately owned. If a government authority wants to acquire land, eminent domain laws may allow them to take private property. Those same laws require payment of just compensation to the land holder. However, negotiating the somewhat undefined amount of “just compensation” can be difficult. If you receive a property seizure or condemnation notice, you are not required to accept an offer. You have a right to legal guidance. Call Geurts Law Firm and talk to an eminent domain attorney. We can examine the details, negotiate the offer, and defend your rights.
