Residential and Commercial Real Estate Closings
Residential real estate encompasses a large variety of potential dwellings, including, but not limited to, houses, condominiums, townhomes and raw land. Residential real estate is often the most important and significant financial investment a person makes, which is why you want to put your home in the hands of someone you trust. At Heymann & Fletcher, Esqs., we have been closing residential real estate transactions for over 36 years and have the skills and expertise necessary to represent you in the process.
Commercial Real Estate
Commercial real estate is the category for all non-residential property used for commercial profit-making purposes. Commercial real estate includes stores, malls, office buildings, and industrial parks. We can help with aspects including purchasing, selling or leasing of any non-residential real estate.
Mortgage Loan Modifications
Mortgage loan modifications, commonly known as refinancing, replace an existing debt obligation with another debt obligation under different terms, hopefully more beneficial terms, like a lower interest rate, shorter payment obligation, or debt relief. Modifications happen for a variety of reasons, such as a favorable change in interest rates, or as the result of a divorce or other split with a joint homeowner.
Landlord/tenant law is a part of the common law that details the rights and duties of landlords and tenants. It includes elements of both real property law (specifically conveyances) and contract law. Understanding your rights as a landlord or tenant is vitally important to assure a profit or maintaining a residence for your family.
Land Use and Zoning Law
The process of obtaining local zoning approvals and construction permits in the State of New Jersey can be daunting to new applicants. The process may be lengthy. The rules seem to differ from one municipality to the next. We help our clients navigate the process whether it be to construct a new building, renovate an existing building, change the use of an existing building, create or consolidate lots or move a lot line. We also hope to improve your understanding of which professionals are necessary to complete the process by finding the appropriate experts to assist you for all your projects.
Residential & Commercial Construction Liens
A construction lien is a claim made against a property by a contractor or other professional who has supplied labor or materials for work on that property. Construction liens are designed to protect professionals from the risk of not being paid for services rendered.
