About Real Estate Law in Cook County?

Some of the most common reasons people need the services of an experienced real estate attorney include residential and commercial transactions such as foreclosures and short sales. And it's important to have an attorney who understands the recent changes to tenant and landlord laws. 

Foreclosure. The threat of foreclosure is frightening for homeowners, but if you cannot afford your mortgage payments, having legal representation in your corner can make all the difference. We work with homeowners and lenders to help our clients can stay in their homes.

Short sales. If you struggle to make your mortgage payments and owe more money on the house than it's worth, a short sale might be the answer. We work with homeowners and lenders to enable you to sell the home so you can stay out of foreclosure.

Real estate law also includes the following areas:

  • Rights and interests in real estate and real property
  • Sales, purchases, and transfers of real estate and real property
  • Rental property and landlord issues
  • Rights of tenants and homeowners
  • Property development and zoning
