Residential and Commercial Real Estate
Our attorneys at Rosenstein Orapello have years of experience handling residential real estate transactions. We provide assistance to those in need of legal representation during the purchase or sale of a home. Although these transactions are routine for our well-practiced attorneys, we understand that for our clients, many of whom are first-time home buyers, the process can appear to be daunting and unfamiliar. We treat every matter we handle with the attention and personal care that our clients deserve and have come to expect from Rosenstein Orapello.
Our services extend far beyond the purchase and sale of residential real estate. Our attorneys also actively handle commercial transactions. We provide assistance to commercial real estate owners, lenders, investors and developers in a wide variety of areas, including: property acquisition, contract drafting and negotiation, 1031 exchanges, commercial leasing, environmental regulation compliance and municipal permitting.
Interest rates on mortgages are and remain at all-time lows. Accordingly, now is the perfect time for homeowners with higher interest rates to take advantage of the market and refinance to a lower rate. Refinancing a property is also a great way to tap into the equity that has been built up over the years creating access to capital that can be used for new real estate investments. Our attorneys are able to help our clients refinance both their residential and commercial properties when needed.
First-time real estate investors, and veterans alike, are often unaware of the personal liability that they face when purchasing real property in their individual name. When you own real property personally, anylegal action and a potential money judgment against you automatically opens all of your assets up to the risk of being seized to satisfy the judgment taken against you..
In order to mitigate the risk for our clients, our attorneys assist our clients in the formation of Limited Liability Companies (LLC's). An LLC is a business structure whereby the members of the company cannot be held personally liable for the company's debts or liabilities. Essentially, the formation of an LLC for the purpose of owning real property, shields your personal assets from being used to pay any liabilities of the LLC.
We have formed hundreds of LLC's for our clients and would love the opportunity to discuss with you whether forming an LLC for your real estate investments is the right move for you.
