Commercial, retail, industrial and residential real estate projects are all different. Whether you are buying, selling, developing, renting or financing a particular real estate project, experienced legal counsel is needed to help you evaluate the relevant factors to ensure you are getting what you expect out of your specific transaction. For example, an evaluation of zoning restrictions, environmental conditions, construction issues, title, and financing options will help protect the dollars you spend on a given real estate project, and can limit your personal liability exposure. At Stimler Law Offices, you will be guided through the proper analysis needed to protect you and your investment in your specific real estate transaction.

Did you know that in addition to municipal zoning codes, binding restrictions on the uses and operations of a business location could exist in Deed and Platt restrictions, environmental laws and regulations and, regulations affecting the license to operate at that location.
There are many rental issues which can cause significant, expensive problems for a business if not properly investigated, negotiated and documented in the lease by management before the lease is signed.

Did you know that there are several steps to obtain a good “marketable” title to real property? Before the deed is officially recorded with the appropriate agency, one of several steps is to have a title insurance company insure the buyer against losses caused by a claim against the buyer’s title after closing, subject to potential possible claims that are listed as excluded from coverage.
As a new owner/operator of real property, you can avoid liability for existing pollution on the premises by establishing that you are an innocent landowner through documentation that you performed All Appropriate Inquiry before becoming the owner/operator and that the result of the due diligence did not reveal the pollution.
With a typical exclusive listing arrangement with a real estate broker, the broker is the only agent entitled to a commission from the seller if the broker finds a qualified buyer. Did you know, however, that the broker is also entitled to a commission, even if the seller finds the buyer without the broker's aid, unless the issue of when a commission is owed is negotiated in the listing agreement?
