What our Real Estate Attorneys Do:
We provide assistance in the negotiation and preparation of contracts for the purchase, sale, or lease of real property. We provide legal assistance in matters involving easements, rights of way, boundary lines, hazardous materials, water rights, mechanics' liens, commercial and residential landlord/tenant matters, construction defects, foreclosures, receiverships, water law, and environmental law. The firm also provides expertise in assisting in the development of commercial and residential properties, including representation before governmental agencies, and preparation of common interest subdivision management documents (CC&R's, Articles, By-laws of homeowners associations).
Many people who own property and want to subdivide it or conduct a business on the property are overwhelmed by the requirements imposed by the government bureaucracy. We can advise you on how to proceed and help you navigate through the different government agencies so that at the end of the day you can do what you want with your property. For over 29 years we have assisted hundreds of clients and to obtain entitlements before local technical advisory committees, planning commissions and board of supervisors including general plan amendments, zoning amendments, use permits, variances, processing of land divisions pursuant to the Subdivision Map Act and the California Environmental Quality Act. Our representation extends to clients with issues concerning the State of California Williamson Act, aka the Land Conservation Act including the handling of immediate cancellation projects on behalf of landowners to remove the land from the Williamson Act.
