A major part of law is about property – how to acquire it, and how to pass it on when we are gone.  For this reason, an important part of Everett, Womble & Lawrence, LLP involves real estate law.

Real estate sales and purchases cannot occur without careful, accurate documentation.  At Everett, Womble & Lawrence, we are the kind of detail-oriented transactional lawyers that draft clear, concise contracts that minimize disagreements further down the road.

We serve both commercial and residential clients, as well as homeowners associations.  We draw up buy/sell agreements,, contracts for deeds and a host of other real estate documents.

We work with clients to form partnerships and joint ventures for the development and financing of real estate projects, including multi-family housing, commercial office buildings, hotels, shopping centers, and mixed used projects.  Our real estate practice is diverse involving all areas of real estate, including the representation of the buyer and seller in all stages of real estate transactions from negotiating the purchase agreement to completing the closing.  Our real estate attorneys advise clients with respect to acquisitions and complex financing transactions, landlord-tenant disputes, complex commercial leasing, and contract negotiations.  Our real estate practice includes areas such as:

  • Boundary Disputes
  • Commercial & Residential Loan Closings
  • Condemnations
  • Deeds
  • Easements
  • Home Owners Associations
  • Housing Developments & Subdivisions
  • Lease Agreements
  • New Home Purchases
  • Refinances 
  • Restrictive Covenants
  • Timber Transactions

 

Call us when you need to review an existing contract, protect your interests with a thorough title search, or resolve property line disputes before they boil over.

Because of the expense involved, we avoid going to court unless it is clearly the best option for clients.  When necessary, we both file and defend against suits alleging breach of contract and calling for the enforcement of covenants.  We are experienced and skilled at filing mechanic’s and construction liens.
