Real Estate

“The law of harvest is to reap more than you sow. Sow an act, and you reap a habit. Sow a habit and you reap a character. Sow a character and you reap a destiny.”

—James Allen

Fisher Law Corporation offers a broad scope of real estate services.


Real Estate Transactions

Acquisitions, Development and Operations. From single family residences to commercial/industrial buildings, we can help you with all phases of acquisition, development, and operations. Are you purchasing or leasing a home or building? What form of ownership should you use? Should you use an LLC or corporation or other entity to hold title? What are the differences between separate property, community property, joint tenancy and tenants in common? What are the tax implications of ownership? Do you need to obtain a conditional use permit or variance? Do you have a structure that encroaches on your neighbor's land or vice versa? Are you a contractor, developer, engineer, architect or other design professional and need help with your contracts, mechanic's liens, stop notices, etc? Do you need to quiet title to, or partition, property? Do you need help with zoning laws, citations, or infractions? Have you received a cease-and-desist notice? Do you need help in securing a loan and understanding the complex loan documents?

These are just a few of the myriad issues that arise in connection with real estate. Let us guide you through the myriad decisions and requirements you will encounter.

Sales and Dispositions. What are the tax implications in selling real estate? Are there ways to shelter capital gains? How do you go about exchanging properties under IRC §1031? How do

foreclosures, short sales and deeds in lieu work, and what are the taxable consequences of each? How does bankruptcy affect real estate transactions? What are the issues involved with assignments and subleases? What are the differences between recourse and non-recourse loans? What are the differences between a judicial and non-judicial foreclosure? How can you workout a defaulted loan with the lender?

We can counsel you on these and many more matters.

Real Estate Litigation

Are you a commercial landlord and need to evict someone? Are you being evicted from your business? Is your lender foreclosing on your property? Did your title insurance policy miss a lien or encumbrance of record? Do you have a boundary dispute with a neighbor? Do you need to foreclose on a mechanic's lien? Is your property environmentally contaminated? Do you own property with a partner or someone else, and need to split up? Do you need to obtain a court-appointed receiver to collect rents? Do you need to obtain relief in bankruptcy court to pursue an eviction or foreclosure?
