An estate is comprised of the assets, possessions, and businesses, or in essence, everything that an individual has ownership of, either separately or jointly. Real estate, which includes land and buildings on property, is often a substantial part of a person’s estate.
During the process of administering an estate or as part of estate planning, we often address the area of residential or commercial real estate. Estate planning may involve the transfer of title, or placement of title to real estate in a corporation or trust. We can advise and assist in any of these areas in order to arrive at an appropriate solution to suit your needs.
Selling real estate frequently becomes part of estate and trust administration. It may involve a number of legal matters, such as disclosure laws regarding the property, drafting purchase and sale agreements and managing escrow.
Ohio law specifically governs proper disclosure regarding property so that sellers are not exposed to future liabilities. Therefore, it is vital to work with an experienced real estate attorney to ensure compliance with relevant statutes and minimize risks.
As part of assisting clients in real estate matters, we offer legal advice, representation and services in the following areas:
- Reviewing and Drafting Conveyances/Deeds
