Real estate agreement negotiations and drafting
Forming a favorable real estate contract is the foundation of a successful property transaction. Our attorneys negotiate and draft enforceable real estate agreements and review agreements prepared by other parties to ensure that the terms are within our clients’ interests. If you are buying, selling or leasing a property, we can assist you in creating an agreement that protects your rights should a dispute occur. If you are involved in a contract dispute, our experienced attorneys will work hard to resolve it to your advantage.
Title searches, clearings and opinions
Before property in Oklahoma can be transferred to a new owner, the title must be examined to ensure it is free of liens or other encumbrances. If a title to a given parcel is free of these encumbrances, it is called a clear title. We can review the history of your property to provide a title opinion, and during this examination process, address and work to resolve any potential problems that we discover.
Boundary and easement disputes
If you are involved in a dispute over where your property ends and a neighboring property begins, we can investigate the issue and advise you of your options. We can also provide guidance if you are in a disagreement with a neighbor or government entity over an easement, which is the legal right to use another party’s property typically for specific and limited purposes.
We handle all aspects of foreclosure, working with banks so they can collect on what they are owed. We also work with individuals in need of foreclosure defense.
Losing a home to foreclosure can be devastating financially and emotionally. However, in some circumstances, foreclosure actions by banks and mortgage lenders can be challenged. Some of the defenses to foreclosure include:
- Federal and state laws that regulate foreclosures were not followed
- Loan servicers made errors in your mortgage account
- The foreclosing institution does not have standing, meaning it can’t prove it owns the mortgage
These are just a few possible defenses. Once we examine your case, we can counsel you as to whether you may have a viable defense or an opportunity to modify your mortgage so you can remain in your home.
