Real Estate

All aspects of the real estate field are handled by the firm, including leases, sales, acquisitions, and developments. The firm is involved in all types of conveyancing issues, representing both buyers and sellers.

The firm can provide advice concerning Purchase and Sale Agreements, from both a buyer's and seller's perspective. It is always advisable to have such an agreement reviewed prior to signing. While most agreements are based upon a relatively "standard" form, these agreements often are modified to favor either the buyer or seller, depending upon which party drafts the agreement. Frequently, addenda are attached to the standard, pre-printed forms commonly used. These addenda can significantly alter the terms of the agreement and should be reviewed carefully. It can also be helpful to have any Offer to Purchase agreement reviewed as well. While the common practice in Massachusetts is to use a "simple" Offer to Purchase agreement to set forth the basic elements of a proposed purchase and sale, followed by execution of the more detailed Purchase and Sale Agreement, the Offer to Purchase can be a legally binding document. Often, such an Offer to Purchase may not afford either the buyer or seller enough protection should issues arise in the course of the proposed purchase and sale, issues that are typically not addressed by the Offer to Purchase document, but generally addressed in the Purchase and Sale Agreement.

The firm can also provide assistance with respect to issues involving condominiums, including the drafting of the necessary documentation to establish a condominium association.
