Real Estate Purchase & Sales Agreements

Real Estate Purchase

Buying or selling real estate is an important moment in one's personal or professional life. Every step of the process contains both opportunities and drawbacks that could have severe consequences down the road. Sometimes, property owners and real estate brokers are not experienced enough to successfully negotiate and draft the requisite contracts that protect your interests beyond the closing of the agreement. Every section in a real estate contract is important, and it is vital that you understand the entire document before signing. Relying on a real estate agent may lead to an uncertain outcome, and costly litigation could hold up the purchase or sale for an extended amount of time.

Whether the property in question is residential or commercial, an experienced real estate attorney should review all papers involved before you sign. At Bellotti Law Group, our Boston real estate attorneys can provide professional advice at all stages of the purchase or sale of your property. Some of our services include:

  • Drafting and negotiating your letter of intent or your offer
  • Drafting the purchase and sales agreement
  • Expert review of all real estate documents
  • Certifying compliance with the terms of the agreement
  • Preparing, filing, and recording the deed

For any of these services, and more, contact a real estate attorney at Bellotti Law Group, P.C. in one of our Boston, Cambridge, or Quincy offices today at 617-225-2100 for a FREE consultation.

Litigation Services

Occasionally, real estate purchases or sales do not proceed smoothly, despite proper diligence on your behalf. There are a number of issues that might create a cause of action, either during escrow or long after closing. During escrow, the seller might breach the contract and refuse to sell. If the seller backs out of the sale, then the buyer might request the court to force the sale in what is called an action for specific performance. Also during escrow, the buyer might breach the contract by refusing to go through with the deal. The seller might be entitled to damages, which are often difficult to calculate. The seller may also have a duty to mitigate damages by attempting to resell the property to another buyer. Other real estate purchase and sale disputes include:

  • Seller's failure to disclose known defects in the property
  • Seller's defective repairs prior to closing
  • Easements or encumbrances
  • Disputes between landlords and tenants

Our real estate litigation attorneys can help represent you and protect your best interests in any residential or commercial real estate dispute. We understand that your property is unique to you, and we will take all steps necessary to enforce the terms of the purchase or agreement. Through settlement or mediation we will try to settle the dispute outside of the courtroom. However, we are fully prepared to go to state or federal court and aggressively litigate on your behalf.

Contact Bellotti Law Group, P.C. today for any of your purchase and sale needs.
