Selling Condos & Townhomes
I can't promise you'll get a fair price for your condo or townhouse. That's not what attorneys do. But I can help you navigate the special legal requirements triggered when you sell such properties, and I can help you minimize the chance the buyer will force you into making price concessions. If you can, contact me before you accept an offer, or, better, before you list your condo or townhouse. But whenever you do, I'll help maximize your return at closing.

Listing for Sale
I can provide assistance whenever you contact me. But I can be most helpful if you do so before listing your condo or townhouse for sale. If you contact me early, I'll help you consider how you may best satisfy the special laws and agreements to which your condo or townhouse may be subject, and, if you've tenants, helping you plan for how they'll be transitioned, updating or terminating leases and, as needed, evicting.
An offer, once you accept it, becomes a binding contract. That means it'll set the respective rights and responsibilities of you and the buyer for the entire transaction. So, it's important. Really important. Many sellers don't appreciate that selling condos and townhouse raise special concerns not covered by contractual forms found online, or the standard real estate agent's form. Sellers shouldn't accept whatever form the buyer may provide, either, as those may be one-sided. I take pride in helping sellers like you prepare and negotiate a customized contract with you in mind. Already receive a form of offer from a buyer? Don't worry. I can help you propose changes that will turn it into a more seller-sensible contract.
As part of my service, I'll prepare the forms that are common in every real estate sale, such as the deed and transfer tax return. I'll also be ready to prepare the additional forms that are specific to condo and townhouse sales. Whatever form is required, I'm going to have you covered.
Multi-family residences are frequently sold with tenants in place, but sometimes a buyer expects you to remove them before closing. I've exceptional experience with leases, tenant rights and evictions, perfectly suiting me to help you deliver the property at closing, as required by the buyer.
I'm highly responsive to clients. If a buyer makes inappropriate demands of you, I'll protect you. If a buyer actually finds something about your title, zoning, permits, structure or leases that truly isn't right, I'll help you find a fast, cost-effective solution, drawing on decades of experience.
