REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS

Real estate transactions are increasingly complex and fraught with substantial risks. The real estate attorneys at Harrington Miller have extensive experience handling a wide range of residential and commercial real estate transactions and issues. Our attorneys have a large and active practice assisting clients in the negotiation and closing of real estate transactions, including the preparation of purchasing agreements, conveyance documents, tax deferred exchanges, financing documents, multi-party agreements, property tax issues, escrow arrangements, contract and operational issues and leasing transactions. We apply advantageous tax planning techniques in the negotiation of real estate transactions, selection and formation of entities, and the preparation of instruments to address all aspects of a real estate transaction.

Harrington Miller frequently assists in planning and negotiating the structure and financing of complex real estate transactions, including transactions that involve owner financing arrangements. Situations with financing arrangements require an attention to detail, and we can ensure that such transactions are properly prepared through real estate mortgages, contracts for deed and other financing documents. Related finance issues can also involve the modification or extension of such financing, the subordination of existing financing arrangements or the assignment, assumption and transfers of such financing.

Harrington Miller also has significant experience in leasing transactions, from simple residential or farm leases to complex commercial leases involving multiple parties, national retailers, restaurants and industries. We can also assist with the preparation of ground leases, build-to-suit leases, subleases and assignments of a variety of real estate documents, including various types of deeds, easements, assignments, limited or special powers of attorney, mortgage releases and affidavits.

Additionally, our attorneys routinely handle numerous types of real estate disputes and issues that arise between neighbors, landlords and tenants, and buyers and sellers. We help our clients resolve such matters in a timely and cost-efficient manner through the negotiation and preparation of agreements, or in the event a resolution cannot be reached, through the litigation of the claims in court.
