Purchasing real estate is a great way to build wealth for you, your business, and your family.

Selling your home or commercial property might provide much-needed capital for your next venture.

Unfortunately, things can go wrong quickly if you don’t have a real estate attorney who knows New Jersey law.

If you’re looking to purchase, sell, develop, or refinance a property, our real estate attorneys in New Jersey can manage your transaction and help you navigate state and municipal rules.

Residential Real Estate Lawyers

When it comes to buying or selling a property in New Jersey, whether it be a condo, townhouse, or single-family home, our attorneys are here to help.

The home buying process necessarily involves the legal system: mortgages, written offers, closing documents, and insurance coverage all involve contracts.

Agreeing to a contract you don’t understand can have serious consequences for the deal and your credit. Our lawyers will walk you through the process, ensuring you understand every aspect of the deal.

We help buyers and sellers by:

  • Explaining your rights and obligations under the real estate contract and mortgage
  • Helping resolve problems with the property (like repairs or termite damage) before the closing
  • Communicating with the realtor, the other party’s lawyer, the title company, and the mortgage company
  • Preparing for the closing, including completing title work 
  • Representing you at the closing

New Jersey law doesn’t require parties to have a lawyer to close a real estate deal. However, having a lawyer can help prevent costly legal disputes from arising.

A New Jersey real estate lawyer can advocate for your interests during contract negotiations and help you resolve any disagreements that come up during the sales and closing processes.

Commercial Real Estate Attorney in New Jersey

Commercial and business real estate transactions are more complex than residential sales.

Types of commercial properties include multi-family units, office space, retail, industrial, and hospitality properties.

When buying commercial property, you must navigate regulations on land development, construction, mortgages, leases, land use and zoning, tax-deferred exchanges, and closings.

Having a real estate attorney who understands and can explain all of these rules is essential to protect your investment.  

Our clients include developers, contractors, landlords, tenants, homeowners’ associations, and buyers and sellers of real property.

We can help you get a fair valuation, secure a commercial loan, and negotiate the final deal. We can also help you advance your project through complicated local zoning and planning approvals and licenses.
