Real Estate

Whether you’re buying or selling a commercial or residential piece of property, your team of experts should include a real estate lawyer. Our attorneys at MJC can review any offer you make or receive and make sure that your rights are protected and your duties clearly defined.

If you’re ready to make or accept an offer on any property big or small, make the offer contingent on a lawyer’s review and approval before you sign.

Further, some title insurance companies and mortgage lenders require you to use a lawyer to ensure that, among other things, the title is good, there are no liens against the property, and that the deal will close as anticipated.

A lawyer’s role here at Manson Johnson Conner can be as broad or a narrow as you want.
