Knowledge of real property law is at the core of correctly executed real estate transactions, and understanding the complicated nature of mineral ownership can help real estate buyers and sellers avoid unnecessary and costly pitfalls. We are uniquely qualified to guide real estate owners and developers through difficult mineral ownership issues. We assist buyers or sellers working with or without a real estate broker through the due diligence process and with the preparation of contracts and closing documents. We also advise real estate clients on concerns involving homeowners associations or common interest communities, leasing, landlord-tenant law, easements and rights-of-way, surface use and access, conservation easements, development covenants, land use regulations, zoning, and encumbrances such as mortgages, deeds of trust and liens.
