Nashville Real Estate Transaction Lawyer
Real estate purchases represent a significant investment. When you’re putting so much capital on the line, you’ll want to make sure your assets are well protected. Larry R. Williams, Attorneys at Law, can assist you with all of your commercial and residential real estate needs. We have experience conducting transactions for:
Commercial Real Estate
Purchasing real estate for your business can be a complicated process. Zoning laws and structural issues can make the buying and selling processes harder. In general, commercial real estate can be designated in one of a few zones. Commercial Neighborhood designations, for example, only allow for low-intensity retail or consumer services. A Downtown Code designation, by contrast, must follow certain specifics of urban design, including useful and attractive streetscapes.
Ensuring your real estate adheres to all zoning laws is crucial, and they can be complicated. It’s best to retain the services of a professional who is familiar with local regulations, from environmental to agricultural. Our attorneys can also help you sell your commercial real estate. Need to rezone your property to entice a potential buyer? Our attorneys know how to get it done.
Commercial real estate ownership comes with complicated taxing and titling considerations. For the uninitiated, it can be easy to make a mistake. Our attorneys specialize in title insurance and have an extensive knowledge of taxing rates for commercial property.
Residential Real Estate
Buying and selling residential homes can also be full of hindrances. The housing market is beginning to rebound, but there are still a fair number of “house flippers” out there. Some intentions are good: a person buys a house “as is,” fixes it up and sells it for a profit. The buyer gets an updated home, the seller makes money, and the community has to deal with one less blighted building. It seems like an arrangement that is beneficial to everyone, but not everyone is honest when it comes to buying real estate.
Some sellers will do the minimum work possible, updating the home enough so that it looks nice through the sale period, but in reality the home is in disrepair. The law requires homeowners to disclose known issues with the house, but such disclosures can be buried under a mountain of paperwork. Our attorneys are skilled at reviewing disclosures and inspecting documents to ensure your home doesn’t have any nasty surprises and that the seller accurately advertised the home.
If your goal is to sell your home, the attorneys at Larry R. Williams, Attorneys at Law can assist you gathering all of the necessary paperwork. We can help you draft real estate contracts and establish the marketability of your home. By arranging a thorough inspection, we can assure any potential buyer that the home is a solid investment.
