Encino Real Estate Attorneys

Broad-Based Real Estate Law Practice Serves Clients Throughout California

Real estate issues are complex and often fraught with unforeseen legal pitfalls. It also doesn’t help that California’s property law is complicated and comes with various nuances. Likewise, all parties involved in real estate transactions may have conflicting interests, which can spark or fuel misunderstandings and disputes.

At Kaufman McAndrew LLP, we enjoy a diverse residential and commercial real estate practice, which includes both real estate transactions and disputes. We assist our real estate clients with purchasing, selling, leasing, and managing their real property.

Do I Really Need a California Real Estate Attorney?

Yes. Many things can and do go wrong in real estate transactions. Whether you are into purchasing, selling, managing, leasing, or developing real estate, you will have to deal with a wide variety of legal issues.

In most cases, what may seem like a straightforward project or transaction, such as a sale or purchase, easement, foreclosure, or long-term lease, among others, may end up having unforeseen complications or obstacles. In such cases, if you opt to do a real estate transaction without an attorney, you may end up getting taken advantage of and needing an attorney later on. Ultimately, working with an attorney right from the start will help you avoid time-consuming and financially draining disputes.

Our seasoned California real estate attorneys have the necessary resources, skills, and experience to complete your real estate transactions as quickly and efficiently as possible. We will ensure that all the terms of your deal will consider your current and future needs, shield you from possible liabilities, negotiate issues, and solve any problems to make sure that you complete the transaction.

At Kaufman McAndrew LLP, we help our clients better understand their rights and the law to empower them and ensure that they know the pros and cons of their transaction so that they can make more informed choices with their investments or when facing a dispute. We’ll guide you through the entire process and make certain that your interests are protected above all else.
