Real estate deals are a balance between risk and reward. A knowledgeable, experienced real estate attorney can advise you through the complex residential transactions to maximize your potential for a positive outcome while minimizing risks.
At West-Watt Law, PLC, our Tucson Arizona real estate and contract attorneys focus on real estate law, including transactions, dispute resolution and litigation.
In commercial real estate, the stakes are very high. After all, you are buying or selling a property that is central to the profits and value of your enterprise. A dispute or lawsuit can derail your operations or expose your investment to unforeseen problems and risks.
Since our law firm also handles business law, our commercial real estate lawyers analyze commercial real estate contracts and agreements to make sure they contain language that safeguards your interests should problems arise.
Common construction defect cases typically involve shifting or expansive soils, framing issues, problems with a building's foundation or framing, and more. Whether you are concerned about a defect in a single-family dwelling, or a commercial building, our skilled real estate attorneys can assist you assessing a construction defect claim, and in resolving that claim, either through negotiation or litigation.
Trustee's Sales / Foreclosures
When a property is in foreclosure, the lender typically hires a party, like a law firm, to act as a trustee to protect its interests. The trustee will try to sell the property to recover the losses resulting from a defaulted mortgage. Similarly, homeowners in financial difficulty often need to enlist the help of a Tucscon foreclosure attorney in order to help defend themselves from a foreclosure. Our real estate attorneys can assist you in negotiating an effective alternative to foreclosure, and, if necessary, to litigate aggressively on your behalf.
Landlord / Tenant Law
Landlord / tenant disputes arise when one party violates the terms of a commercial or residential lease. If the parties are unable to resolve the dispute, they may need to seek the help of a Tucson landlord tenant lawyer. While the prospect of evicting someone may seem cold, there are unfortunately times when it proves necessary. Likewise, landlords who do not uphold their responsibilities under the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant act may force tenants to seek recourse. Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, our landlord tenant attorneys can assist you in resolving your legal dispute.
Contracts for Sale
Contracts involving real estate often involve a family's largest investment, or a substantial business asset. When a party breaches a real estate contract, the stakes are often high, and can leave the other party in a serious bind. It is important that such contracts are carefully prepared by a skilled real estate attorney, to help prepare for these situations. Our real estate attorneys have extensive experience in both drafting and litigating commerical and residential real estate contracts of all kinds.
Homeowner's Association Law
Homeowner's Association disputes touch on a number of aspects of Arizona contract and real estate law. HOA's may need assistance in enforceing their CC&Rs, or in making amendments to them, while homeowners or tenants may need assistance in resolving a dispute with their HOA. Whether you are a homeowner or an Association, our skilled real estate attorneys are able to help answer your legal needs.
A properly drafted lease can help an Arizona landlord avoid many common pitfalls associated with renting properties to tenants. Even when the parties to a rental agreement enter into it with good intentions, situations may arise that neither party foresaw. A comprehensive rental agreement can help plan around such unforeseen circumstances, and clearly define the rights and obligations of both landlord and tenant. Our real estate attorneys have a great deal of experience both drafting and litigating commercial and residential lease agreements, and can prepare a lease to suit your specific needs.
