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.

Klenk Law is an exceptional practice. Their fine lawyers and staff team up to produce excellent results for their clients. They excel at explaining the often cryptic laws and policies that govern estate planning right down to the complexities of the various "trust" frameworks. Peter himself manages each client together with his great team, and he has a rare quality to be both a walking encyclopedia of planning minutia and also one of the most likable lawyers I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. He is truly generous in intellect and in his personal approach to getting the "big picture" for complex family structures. I trust him implicitly to help me make the right choices for the future. In short, Klenk Law is a gem of a firm.

Peter explained a complex subject very clearly, helped us to decide the best approach to managing our estate and then made it very easy for us to execute the required documents. He will be a valuable resource for years to come and clearly has a great understanding of estate law that will lead to innovative solutions for us. I would unhesitatingly recommend him for estate planning.
