Columbus Real Estate Attorney

Buying a home or commercial property is often the biggest purchase you will ever make.   You therefore need exact contract language, lien research, and advice on required disclosures.  Hiring a real estate attorney can help you make sure all the requirements are addressed before the closing.

Do I Need a Real Estate Attorney?  I Already Have a Real Estate Agent.

Real estate attorneys protect buyers and sellers from costly mistakes.  Real estate agents are valuable resources, however they don’t have a law degree.  A real estate attorney is educated to correct and address real estate legal issues, such as disclosing defects and contract language.  Your attorney will guide through the real estate purchase process by reviewing documents, searching title, and avoiding lawsuits.    A real estate lawyer can assist lenders to file a foreclosure, or help borrowers defend against foreclosure.  Wolfe Legal Services has represented many real estate clients including:

  • Buyers
  • Sellers
  • Landlords
  • Tenants
  • Condominium Associations
  • Developers
  • Contractors
  • Property Managers
  • Lenders
  • Borrowers
  • Investors

We Will Be Your Safety Net

We will perform the “due diligence” for you.  As your Columbus real estate attorney, we help you with tasks such as negotiations, inspections and appraisals.  We write documents such as rental, purchase, sale, disclosure, mortgage, deeds, affidavits, trusts, and others.  With over 20 years of experience, find problems others do not.   We will use our expertise as real estate attorney to make sure you don’t fall into any traps.

Helping Clients During the Foreclosure Process

When a lender or lienholder sues an owner over an encumbered property,  the process is called foreclosure.   This process starts if there is a default on the mortgage payments or to collect payment of a lien.  The foreclosure process is very stressful if you are the borrower, and maybe even if you are the lender.  If you need the help of a real estate attorney in the Columbus Ohio area, we are here for you.

If you are a lender, lienholder, or condominium association, we will handle the entire foreclosure, all the way to a Sheriff Sale.   If you a borrower we can help you too.  We will check to see if any mistakes were made in the foreclosure process, or seek a loan modification.  We will also try to negotiate with the lender and see if we can reach any other agreement.

We Are Prepared for Litigation

Real estate transactions don’t always work out, resulting in lawsuits.  At Wolfe Legal Services we can help you.  We will draft legal pleadings and represent you at trial.  A good real estate attorney is also an excellent negotiator.   We sometimes can reach a favorable settlement before trial.
