Commercial and Residential Real Estate
and Condo Law
One key to successful personal or business financial management is the timely acquisition and disposition of property. Our Real Estate Department manages varied types of property transactions from the individual house purchase to commercial, industrial and residential development projects.
The lawyers in this Department provide direction in structuring development agreements, joint ventures, zoning matters, leases and construction contracts, and advice on landlord and tenant matters.
Barriston is also extensively involved in structuring financing for real estate acquisition and development.
Real Estate - Residential
Buying or selling a home can be the largest transaction that many people ever enter into. Our Real Estate team understands the emotion and stress that can be involved. That’s why communication and consultation with our clients is so important. Our Real Estate team will consult with you throughout the process. We can assist you by reviewing the terms of your offer and drafting conditions, representations and warranties where appropriate to protect your interests. We will also discuss how you would like to take title to the property and the title insurance options available to you. We will help to get you through the transaction and into your new home as smoothly as possible.
