Legal services in the real estate field encompass a wide variety of topics from the simple review of sales documents, to disputes about easements and riparian rights as well as environmental concerns and disclosures. Sutherland Law, PLC stands ready to assist you and your family in whatever needs you may have in residential real estate. An experienced Real Estate and property attorney can save you valuable time and thousands in mistakes and oversights.

Owning property is not all enjoyment and pleasure, and too often we can forget the incidental occurrences that cause headaches and unexpected expenses. Purchasing a property that had an undisclosed environmental concern, for instance, can leave you liable for the cost of the entire cleanup effort unless you file proper notice and assessment paperwork within a limited time frame of the discovery of the issue at hand. Just a simple purchase agreement for a new or vacation home should undergo an experienced Real Estate lawyers scrutiny.
