Gilbert Real Estate Lawyers

Real estate transactions may seem simple — you buy or you sell — but they can actually be some of the most complicated legal transactions out there. The reason is that they usually bring together multiple areas of the law, such as contract, property and tax law. In order to have a successful transaction and to protect yourself from liability, you need to work with a Gilbert real estate lawyer who is experienced with all the potential issues and areas of law. The attorneys at Denton Peterson PC have been helping both residential and commercial real estate buyers and sellers for many years, and our team can help you with any kind of transaction.

Residential Real Estate Issues

Our Gilbert attorneys help buyers and sellers through all stages of residential real estate transactions. We can also help with issues that arise after all the paperwork has been signed and finalized. Our attorneys can help you with:

  • Reviewing documents related to the purchase or sale of a residence
  • Drafting purchase contracts
  • Providing counsel on buying or selling options
  • Creating and reviewing property disclosure statements
  • Providing counsel on deeds, liens, property ownership and transfer, etc.

Once the transaction is completed, many residential homeowners still need legal help. You may encounter legal issues long after acquiring the property. For example, you may have a neighbor who builds a fence well past the property line and refuses to remedy the situation. Or, if the encroaching fence has been there long enough, then your neighbor may claim that portion of property as his own, a legal issue also known as “adverse possession.”

We can help with these kinds of disputes and more. Some of the other issues that we assist Gilbert homeowners with include easement rights, disputes between joint owners of property, agreements for private road maintenance, well sharing agreements, disputes with homeowner’s associations, and disputes over deed restrictions. By working with an experienced real estate lawyer, you protect your legal interests and minimize any liability in the process.

Commercial Real Estate Issues

Buying or selling commercial real estate can be more complicated because it usually involves a more expensive transaction, special zoning issues, and landlord and tenant issues. A real estate lawyer from our team can ensure that all due diligence is performed for a successful transaction and will guide you through the legal issues that need to be considered.
