Commercial real estate

Commercial real estate transactions can involve different kinds of properties, including:

  • Retail Properties
  • Warehouses
  • Manufacturing Facilities
  • Apartment Complexes
  • Shopping Centers
  • Hotels
  • Office Buildings
  • Vacant Land

Commercial real estate transactions include the same kinds of documents as used in residential sales. However, because of their complex nature, including zoning and environmental issues, there is usually significantly more documentation to be prepared, reviewed and considered.

Residential real estate

The sale or purchase of a home is one of the largest financial transactions of anyone’s life, and also one of the more stressful. Home sale or purchase involves reviewing the following:

  • Closing Documents
  • Titles
  • Mortgage Agreements
  • Refinancing Documents
  • Surveys
  • Insurance Documents
  • Appraisals

Although the laws and documents may be the same in most residential sales, our real estate lawyers know that every transaction is different. With so much at stake, it’s critical to have an experienced, reputable lawyer who will ensure that even the most complex transaction is handled properly and with a rigorous attention to detail.

Agricultural real estate

Our attorneys assist farmers, ranchers, landowners, lenders and suppliers with all aspects of contract drafting and negotiation, farm leases, land sales and litigation. We also work with farmers to help them maximize the use of their land, including leasing portions of it for use by wind energy and oil and gas development. Of course, such long-term use contracts must be cautiously negotiated, and our attorneys have many years of experience handling such arrangements.

Real estate litigation in Texas

Unfortunately, even when there are the best intentions during negotiations, litigation can sometimes happen. Disputes can arise over ownership or claims from previous owners that have not been satisfied, but they can also include:

  • Mortgage Foreclosures
  • Construction Liens
  • Fraud and Misrepresentation
  • Real Property Disputes in Probate Court

Our real estate attorneys are committed to ensuring that our clients’ assets and rights are protected at every step of a real estate transaction.

We are proud of our reputation as successful real estate lawyers and litigators, but we are equally proud of being known for our integrity, compassion, community service, and the personal attention we provide every client we represent. Many of our clients have been with us since our founding more than 50 years ago. Those kinds of relationships are built on a foundation of trust, communication, and great service that endures over many generations of clients and attorneys.
