We are all about guidance. Our Edina real estate law firm provides legal services to Minnesota developers, contractors, architects, lenders, and residential buyers and sellers.
Distressed Property Purchases
The uncertain real estate market has brought with it ample opportunities for investors to purchase properties that aim to increase their overall revenue and net worth. But as with all opportunities, challenges are possible. Our Edina distressed property attorneys can help investors with foreclosures, workouts, purchases of defaulted loans, and real estate owned (REO) properties.
Commercial and residential real estate sales often require an attorney’s help to ensure a client’s best interests are protected. Our real estate attorneys represent buyers and sellers in the acquisition and disposition of office parks, retail locations, hotels, single-family homes, condos, and other residential and commercial properties.
Workouts are often complicated and confusing. Our attorneys are experienced in negotiating and documenting loan workouts, forbearance agreements, and the sale of distressed assets. We represent clients who are having trouble with their previous real estate transactions, including loan defaults. Our team also represents lending institutions in the sale of defaulted or distressed loans to investors.
Buyer and Seller Representation in Lieu of a Realtor
It’s no secret that real estate agents earn high commissions. And sometimes, legal questions arise that a realtor can’t answer. Our Twin Cities real estate attorneys are experts in Minnesota real estate laws and can provide counsel in all matters that arise, including property liens and contract reviews. We will guide you through the decision-making process quickly and efficiently, which saves both buyers and sellers time and a lot of money.
A title is one of the most important documents in real estate transactions. Our title review attorneys can look at title orders, including ownership and encumbrance reports, title records, and all other aspects of title commitments in residential real estate closings. We work directly with MLG Title, LLC, an Edina title company, to address any issues that may not be otherwise overlooked and ensure our clients best interests are protected before the deal closes and the sale is final.
Property Tax Appeals
Many Minnesotans find that the assessed value for their homes or businesses has increased substantially, resulting sky-high property taxes. Our property tax appeal attorneys help clients contest their valuation increases and file a property tax appeal to save them money.
Commercial and Residential Lease Drafting, Review, and Dispute Resolution
Our attorneys are highly-skilled in Minnesota landlord-tenant agreements. We help Minnesota landlords draft and review leases, address lease violations, resolve disputes, and more.
We help tenants fight unfair eviction notices. Our team also guides property managers and owners on serving eviction notices, if and when to go to court, forcible evictions, deposits, and other issues that can arise with negligent tenants.
Mechanics Lien Claims
Litigation is sometimes unavoidable in commercial and residential construction. Our Minnesota Mechanics LIen Claims lawyers represent general contractors, subcontractors, home owners, and others to bring about the best resolution possible.
Real Estate Financing
Mortgage lenders, loan servicers, and borrowers sometimes need to act fast in responding to market conditions and regulatory changes. Our Minnesota real estate financing attorneys offer clients industry guidance and insight to borrowers and lenders in all of the moving parts that come with most real estate financing transactions.
Zoning and land use can be confusing for residents and business owners. The property zoning lawyers at our Edina law firm are familiar with the local laws. They can advise clients on land use and zoning options for their home or business.
