Real Estate

At Bales & Bales, P.A. we counsel our clients on all aspects of the purchase, development, operation, and sale of real property. Our Real Estate practice includes counseling in the areas of real estate transactions, title insurance, contractual obligations, financing, and development. We serve sellers, buyers, lenders, borrowers, developers, landlords, and tenants in both commercial and residential real estate transactions. In real estate purchases and sales we carefully guide our clients from the beginning of the purchase through the completion of the sale by providing all of the legal services necessary to close a real estate transaction, including reviewing contracts, searching and reviewing titles, preparing closing documents, and attending closings. We negotiate purchase and sale agreements, mortgage agreements, leases, and commercial contracts on behalf of our clients. As an additional service, we are a licensed agent for a major title company and are able to provide you with all of your title insurance needs.

Our practice also encompasses condominium creations and condominium conversions. Our condominium practice includes reviewing and negotiating property acquisition agreements, drafting condominium declarations, articles, bylaws and other condominium documents, representing developers in negotiations with local government authorities, and negotiating various financing arrangements with institutional and other lenders on behalf of our clients. In connection with condominium conversions, we also guide our clients through the regulations relating to the disclosure of the condition of the property and estimated replacement costs, special reserve accounts, warranties and the rights of current residents of the property. We also advise condominium associations regarding the ongoing operation of their property.
