Experienced Attorney Assisting Clients in Santa Clara County, San Francisco, and Across the San Francisco Bay Area

With a San Jose real estate lawyer working with you from the very start of your real estate transactions, you stand the best chance of avoiding unnecessary liabilities and legal challenges in the future. The best time to involve an experienced lawyer in the purchase or sale of your home or business is during the planning phase.

We negotiate, draft and review real estate documentation for the following:

  • Purchase and sale of unimproved property

  • 1031 exchanges
  • Commercial leasing
  • Short sale
  • Easement and title issues

Commercial Lease Work - Our firm represents landlords and tenants in single buildings and in retail centers or shopping malls. We also represent clients in the purchase of raw land for commercial development. Depending on our client's needs, we will answer specific questions concerning a commercial lease, review the lease to point out potential problems and negotiate the terms of the entire lease.

1031 Exchanges - In a 1031 exchange, the proceeds from the sale of a property may be tax deferred when used by the seller to buy the same or similar type of property. There are a number of factors that can result in denial of tax benefits in a 1031 exchange with catastrophic financial results. A skilled attorney can help you avoid these potential pitfalls, resolve any problems, and obtain the benefits you desire. If you are considering a 1031 exchange, it is better to retain the services of a lawyer as early in the process as possible before it is too late to avoid problems.

Short Sales / Foreclosures / Cancellation of Debt - Our firm provides consultations and advice concerning cancellation of debt (COD) income from short sales and foreclosures as well as alternatives such as loan modification, refinance, deed in lieu, or bankruptcy.

Proposition 13 / Reassessment - The valuable protection provided by Proposition 13 can be lost by poorly planned transfers of real property. Our firm can help clients recognize Proposition 13 issues and avoid loss of benefits in sales, and other ill - advised transactions. Good advice can help protect against the avoidable loss from reassessment if Proposition 13 protection is lost.
