At Shinners & Cook, we understand that your business and personal transactions can be complex and may be interrelated. If you are purchasing or selling residential or commercial property, consulting a real estate attorney can save you time and money, and protect your financial interests long-term.
When buying or selling real estate, you may want to ask your attorney:
- How can I be sure there are no outstanding environmental issues or wetlands concerns on a piece of property I am buying?
- Should I be concerned about proposed ordinance changes?
- What are my responsibilities after I sell a commercial property?
