Are you transferring ownership of real estate to a private individual or public entity? Defining and laying out the purchase price, obligations, and responsibilities of the actual transfer comes with many legal loopholes.

Review & Drafting of Sales & Purchase Agreements

By law, real estate transactions in Massachusetts require the presence of an attorney and their administration of a sales and purchase agreement (SPA). Sales and purchase agreements is a binding legal contract between a buyer and seller. The SPA is not the final contract or the closing agreement. It serves as the supporting structure in the negotiations process that lays out the final price for the property and the terms of the purchase.

Have you or a borrower defaulted on a loan? Are you facing foreclosure? Whether you’re the lender or borrower in the situation, Mark M. Gershlak Attorney at Law can help to renegotiate and restructure the terms of the loan to achieve the best possible outcome for both parties involved.

Title Certification & Title Insurance

Issued by the state or municipality, a certificate of title identifies the owner of a house or land. Eventually, this title is transferred to the buyer. However, it is essential to clear this title (and otherwise prove the seller’s ownership) with the assistance of a real estate attorney before purchase. Otherwise, a bad title can leave a buyer responsible for any outstanding property liens, owed taxes, and unresolved legal and financial violations tied to the property. If you need assistance with clearing title insurance defects and other issues relating to your claim, Attorney Gershlak can help you take the next appropriate step.

We also have limited experience in estate administration & corporate matters!
