Residential Real Estate

Sales Transactions

Residential real estate transactions can be tricky for both buyers and sellers. Often, in the interest of keeping costs down, the parties go it alone, relying on the brokers and form documents. That approach is usually fine, but there are certain situations where a real estate lawyer is essential to protect the buyer or the seller. A few examples are:

  • high value property transactions,
  • transactions involving section 1031 tax free exchanges,
  • pre-construction contracts for future projects,
  • purchases of newly built homes,
  • sale & leaseback transactions,
  • seller financing (also known as seller carryback transactions), and
  • purchases of property intended for use as rental property or other business purposes.

At Summit 6 Legal we have experience working with realtors and managing complex residential sales, from contract through closing. We’ve helped residential buyers and sellers successfully complete transactions in the most exclusive communities along the front-range, and in Aspen, Vail, Telluride and other mountain communities. 

Leases

Everyone (your lawyer included) wants a “simple lease” but a document that lacks key provisions protecting the owner of the property can result in problems and frustrations that last a long time.  Landlords renting private homes or condominiums need a leasing lawyer to draft a contract that covers all of the contingencies. From a tenant’s perspective, a leasing lawyer can help think through the document and identify over-reaching, onerous or non-typical provisions. Summit 6 Legal provides expert legal advice to landlords and tenants on leasing matters.
