Hoover Residential Real Estate Service
Aside from going without a real estate agent, attempting to buy or sell a residential property without knowing the law or having legal counsel is the most common cause of error in real estate transactions, according to US News. While real estate agents possess vital knowledge of their own, an attorney can help you navigate Alabama’s intricate laws surrounding residential real estate. By not conforming to the rules and regulations laid out by the federal and state governments, you open yourself up to a number of financial and legal pitfalls.
The Complexities of Commercial Real Estate Transactions
While residential real estate may be confusing, commercial real estate includes an entirely different level of complication, and can be risky. For example, the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, which is a federal law that helps to protect homebuyers, is not applicable to commercial real estate transactions. Furthermore, our attorneys can ensure that the deal does not go south by helping with negotiations, drafting documents, and reading and understanding the fine print. Buying or selling commercial real estate in Hoover is a serious business decision that necessitates professional guidance.
There are various options that we can pursue if you are facing home foreclosure, and our counsel will include detailed analysis of your specific situation. We may be able to negotiate with the lender to come to a beneficial solution. Whether your options are loan modification, short sale, or deed in lieu of foreclosure, there may be viable workarounds in order to ward off foreclosure.
Not all tenants are easy to work with. If you are having trouble evicting a tenant, we highly recommend talking with one of our eviction attorneys as soon as possible to work within the scope of the law to evict your difficult tenant.
Compliance With The Federal Fair Housing Act
Discrimination is illegal under the U.S. Federal Fair Housing Act, and by not knowing the law, you may be putting yourself at serious financial risk. The Act prohibits “discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of dwellings, and in other housing-related transactions, based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status (including children under the age of 18 living with parents or legal custodians, pregnant women, and people securing custody of children under the age of 18), and disability.”
