Real Estate Transactions Attorney
Making the decision to purchase a home or commercial property is exciting, whether you are a first time home-buyer or an experienced investor. Knowing your rights and obligations as a responsible investor throughout the real estate transaction process is vital. I am Charlie Dorothy. I am an experienced attorney and possess over 35 years of experience protecting the immediate and future interest of individuals in real estate transactions.
Do I Need an Attorney for my Real Estate Matter?
Many people assume that a real estate purchase, sale or lease is a straightforward transaction, needing only boilerplate contract language. The truth is, every property is different and every party comes to the agreement with different expectations. Before entering a real estate contract, it is important to know your rights and obligations, as well as have an advocate who can negotiate the details on your behalf.
As an experienced real estate attorney, I know how to negotiate terms of an agreement to protect the interests of my clients. I will identify the interests and economic needs of each party and try to fulfill the needs of my client in light of the other parties rights. I don't have a standard contract and will never force you to form your unique business activities and cash flow into a generic form.
I am highly experienced in handling a wide variety of real estate transactions and can assist you or your business in:
- Drafting or modifying purchase sale agreements
- Financing negotiation and real estate development
- Negotiating leases for residential or commercial property
- Landlord/tenant agreements
- Workouts and lost sales for developers
- Foreclosures and damage mitigation
- Condominium law
- Quite title actions
Advocacy Focused on Your Interests and Investments
I represent homeowners, investors, contractors, subcontractors, developers and lenders in a wide range of real estate transactions. On any side of an agreement, it is important to know your rights and potential obligations. Documenting the details of your agreement can also insulate you against future liability. My experience in real estate transactions is broad. I have given numerous seminars on leases and contract formation to real estate brokers in residential and commercial real estate transactions.
I am a dedicated lawyer who is always available to answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to call my Sioux Falls, South Dakota office at 605-335-5740 or email me for more information.
