Residential Real Estate
We represent buyers and sellers of residential real estate, handling all matters, from the negotiation of terms to the closing. We help buyers with unsatisfied contingencies, including mortgage or home sale contingencies. For sellers, we ensure that contract obligations are satisfied and clear title is passed. We will also represent you in real estate litigation, if necessary. To learn more, see our residential real estate page.
We focus our representation on the needs of residential landlords, handling all matters related to allegations of housing ordinance violations or breaches of contract, as well as eviction proceedings. We also draft and review residential leases. For additional information, go to our landlord-tenant page.
We represent developers, buyers and investors in condominium conversion projects, helping you comply with the requirements of the Illinois statutes and Chicago ordinances. We handle all contracts, reports and other required documentation, and will help you set up a condominium association. See our condominium conversion page for more.
We work with general contractors and subcontractors, helping you take the necessary steps to file and perfect a mechanics' lien, and to take action to recover for labor or materials secured by a mechanics' lien. For more information, see our page on mechanics' liens.
