Protecting Your Real Estate Interests

The real estate attorneys at Goode | Hemme have in-depth experience with the laws and regulations governing real estate transactions in California. We recognize the need for creativity in structuring transactions to meet the needs of all participants. Our goal is to provide the best possible legal advice, responsive service and clear and concise documentation in a timely manner.

Experience In Many Different Practice Areas

Whether you are purchasing your first home, upgrading to a larger home or selling your “empty nest,” buying a home should be an exciting and rewarding experience. At Goode | Hemme, we represent developers, investors and owners in connection with the acquisition and disposition of commercial properties. Our attorneys have helped clients deal with many legal issues, including:

  • Breach of contract
  • Easements and encroachments
  • Flooding and landslides
  • Foreclosures
  • Homeowner’s association (HOA) and CC&R disputes
  • Seller and real estate broker misrepresentation
  • Trees and walls/fences/boundary disputes
  • Litigation/arbitration/mediation
  • Leases
  • Commercial and residential purchase transactions, including closings
  • Financing transactions
  • Title issues/quiet title actions

Keep in mind that real estate transactions can open the parties up to legal liabilities and headaches and that realtors are not permitted by law to give legal advice. Our experienced real estate lawyers can help take the mystery out of buying or selling real estate and make certain that you have enough information to make informed decisions.
