Innovative Thinking with a Practical Approach

Protecting Your Real Estate Investments

If you own an interest in real estate, you need a lawyer on call who knows how to plan and execute every major transaction and knows these deals inside and out. But this lawyer can’t be a one-trick pony, because real estate requires far more than mere knowledge in real estate law. Today, real estate involves securities issuances, environmental considerations, and a keen knowledge of the intersection of corporate and tax law.

Cavitch Familo & Durkin’s real estate team has years of experience representing purchasers, sellers, lenders, developers, landlords, tenants, real estate brokers and title companies in all aspects of their businesses throughout northeast Ohio and beyond Their comprehensive knowledge and dedication make them a trusted partner for navigating the complexities of real estate transactions.

Ensuring A Smooth Real Estate Transaction

We carefully examine all of the issues related to the successful completion of real estate transactions, including:

  • Purchase and sale of residential and commercial property – From the beginning of negotiations, through the documentation and due diligence process, to the completion of the closing, our experienced lawyers will attend to every detail.
  • Financing real estate – We represent lenders and real estate investors. This diverse experience gives us an advantage in understanding how to negotiate and efficiently close a loan transaction.
  • Syndication of ownership – Few real estate lawyers understand the complexity of creating a legally compliant investment fund, whether in the structure of an LLC, a limited partnership, or a tenancy in common. We bring the two worlds together in a one-stop shop for fund sponsors.
  • Development projects – Our real estate lawyers assist our clients from the beginning of a land purchase, through the documentation and development process.
  • Leasing – We handle many types of real estate leases, including industrial leases, oil and gas leases and commercial leases for office buildings and retail spaces. In addition, property managers rely on Cavitch Familo & Durkin’s lawyers for day-to-day advice about residential and retail lease agreement issues.
  • Corporate formation and advisory services – The structure of your real estate venture is critical and not always obvious. Getting it right can be the difference between success and failure, when it comes to tax planning, liability protection, and succession planning. Cavitch Familo & Durkin’s lawyers stay up on the most recent opportunities, including being on the cutting edge of Series LLC formation.
