A New Jersey real estate attorney provides legal counsel to you when buying and selling a residence, negotiating leases, easements, or licenses, litigating or mediating real property disputes, or evaluating best strategies for real estate holdings. No two properties are alike. Investors and homeowners will be best served by a knowledgeable, experienced real estate lawyer.
For residential transactions, at a minimum, the New Jersey real estate lawyer begins the attorney review period, negotiates the contract, advises on contingencies, title, and lending issues, prepares closing documents, and closes the transaction.
Additional issues often arise, which are addressed by your real estate attorney. Real estate considerations additionally vary by region. For example, local to our region are concerns with the Highlands Water Protection and Planning Act, frequent issues with septic systems, the more common finding of natural occurring arsenic contamination in Private Well Testing Act reporting, and other similar problems. An experienced real estate attorney understands such issues and related options.
Your real estate matter may uncover questions involving title, land-use and zoning, landlord tenant law, oil tank remediation, estate administration or elder law issues, municipal assessments or liens, noncompliant homeowners associations, or divorcing owners.
These limited examples illustrate the benefit of selecting a real estate attorney with demonstrated experience in real estate law combined with a broader understanding of related experience. The success of a real estate transaction, or the ability to evaluate real property disputes, typically requires a broader legal knowledge and an integrated approach to providing legal advice. The New Jersey real estate attorneys at Shanahan & Voigt, LLC offer this holistic approach, will listen to your individualized goals and concerns, and will customize legal strategies. Our clients are our first priority.
