Real Estate Transactions

Attorneys in the real estate practice group are known for their ability to respond to the changing dynamics of the real estate market. We deliver a full complement of transactional services involving the acquisition, sale, financing, development and leasing of real property, including consideration of issues arising from construction projects, land use, zoning and environmental concerns.

We represent all parties involved in real estate transactions from developers to lenders, and architects to engineers.  Clients benefit from our acumen as seasoned lawyers, who have hands-on experience in all aspects of acquisition, development, financing, leasing, and disposition of commercial and multi-family residential properties.

Cummins & White emphasizes prompt, cost-effective service.  Each client matter is analyzed and staffed appropriately. When issues outside the “real estate box” arise, we draw on the entire firm’s expertise to explore options and develop strategies that will achieve the desired result.

Cummins & White’s lawyers also are familiar with all types of commercial and residential real estate management issues. We proactively guide and counsel homeowners, condominium associations, and professional property managers about their duties and obligations.  To help clients save costs, our lawyers attend association board meetings on a selective basis, and also invite clients to hold their board of directors meetings at our offices.

Important aspects of real estate management involve building repairs, changes in the CC&Rs, lease terminations/ renewals, financial restructuring, and risk management.  Our lawyers work in tandem with clients to support the ongoing viability of real property from daily management concerns to workouts to the disposition of troubled properties.  We always strive to give our clients sound, common sense business advice that works within the unique dynamics of the real estate industry.
