Real Estate Details

Acquisition & Disposition

At Venerable, we assist you and your business to create, modify, amend, negotiate, and/or finalize the necessary documents to acquire or dispose of any commercial/mixed-use/residential property. As part of the process, we will assist clients by reviewing property title reports in order to ensure title marketability.

Marketable title is one which is free of title defects. Some potential title defects are:

  • Adverse possession claims
  • Covenants/CC&Rs
  • Easements
  • Outstanding liens/mortgages
  • Structural encroachments
  • Zoning restriction violations

Without an attorney to review purchase/sale contracts, financing agreements, title reports, and escrow documents, a person/business can easily be in a situation where their acquisition of property becomes a horrifying experience. Our attorneys will work to ensure that you stay clear of the pitfalls and roadblocks on your way to real estate success.

Warranty & Insurance Claims | Construction Defects

Whenever a construction defect issue is suspected, time becomes the enemy. It is imperative to consult an attorney to arrange for physical inspection of the defective premises, review your applicable warranties, and analyze the regulatory codes potentially affecting your claims. By failing to initiate an immediate response, you may jeopardize your claims due to the applicability of the statute of limitations or the duty to mitigate. A construction defect is almost any condition that reduces the value of a property. Primarily, there are two categories of defects for which a homeowner or homeowner association can recover from. The first is defects in design or workmanship and the second is defects related to land movements. Venerable – Counselors at Law, PC, is capable of walking you through the process of identifying, reporting, investigating, and furthering your claim for construction defects.
