Real Estate and Potential Issues

Posted on Fri Jan 21, 2022, on Estate Planning

Real Estate

Whether buying a home, land, or other property it’s important to understand the problems that could arise from the transaction. While many real estate transactions go smoothly with little-to-no problems there are some real estate deals that don’t fully align. When different issues arise it’s important to know how to get through these issues. Let’s look at some of the different problems that may arise from a real estate transaction. 

Zoning

Zoning is something that needs to always be considered when purchasing properties. State and local governments designate specific pieces of land for specific purposes. This includes purposes of historical, residential, industrial, commercial, and more. Always check to ensure that if you or someone you know are purchasing land that it can be used for what it is desired for. Fines or other penalties may occur if the land is being used for purposes other than what is zoned for.

Contracts

When it comes to real estate contracts there can be a large amount of wordage that leaves people confused by what it is trying to say. Some contracts and documents involved with real estate transactions can be many pages long. This is why it is important to understand the different facets of real estate law and what is and isn’t allowed in a contract. If this is something that seems too difficult or time-consuming, then it may be in your best interest to have the contract reviewed or drawn up by a real estate lawyer from a law firm like Yee Law Group, PC. Experienced real estate lawyers have the necessary skills, knowledge, and experience to create a contract or review one that seems confusing. Don’t hesitate to seek legal counsel if the transaction is a tricky one as this may save you a great deal of pain and headache down the road.  

Landlord-Tenant

Landlords and tenants seemingly have a simple relationship. One provides the housing and the other pays for that housing. While it sounds simple, like anything in life, issues can still arise. When a tenant is late on their payments or doesn’t treat the property with care and respect a landlord may have the right to take legal action against them. The same can be said for the tenant. If a landlord doesn’t offer to fix appliances or other general care items for their tenant then the tenant may have a legitimate claim to taking legal action against the landlord. When these types of things occur it’s best to understand your rights and the law.

I saw four lawyers and was told by all of them; I should just forget contesting my mother's will. I knew what happened, but it is very hard to prove undue influence. I contacted the Law Offices of Peter L. Klenk & Associates. Attorney Amanda DiChello took my case. They were very honest and upfront about what would be involved trying to prove what I knew was true. Attorney DiChello may be young but she is extremely knowledgeable and skilled. She listened and understood what I conveyed to her. She knew exactly what information to use and crafted an outstanding interrogatory and many powerful depositions. Attorney DiChello understood the various emotional feelings this case created for my family and me; she was always there for us with a kind and encouraging word. We went to trial. The amount of work which she and her Paralegal did for the trial was incredible. They both knew my case inside and out! Attorney DiChello's powerful interrogative and thinking skills produced a positive outcome. Attorney DiChello did what other seasoned lawyers said was impossible!

I met Peter soon after he started his practice in Philadelphia, PA. He and his team have always been there for me and my various inquiries throughout my life-changing events, corporate relocations. I have lived in various cities throughout the nation, I have never had a problem in contacting Peter or a member of his team. He and his office responds quickly and returns calls to me to fulfill my requests for information or to revise my estate needs while posing relevant thought-provoking questions that I need to consider to secure my future. One of Peter's best qualities is his ability to answer clients complicated questions in a simple way to ensure comprehension.

Peter recently gave a presentation about Wills & Trusts at my employer, and it was fantastic! He was extremely knowledgeable and provided valuable information to the group. People were very engaged and asked several questions, all of which Peter thoroughly answered. Personally, my husband and I have selected Peter to help us with our estate planning, and he has been very helpful in providing us with all of the information we need to provide a secure future for our family. Thank you, Peter!
