Real Estate Overview

Real Estate Attorney in Springfield, MO

At the Piatchek Law Firm, our attorneys handle a wide variety of real estate and property law issues. All of our attorneys practice some aspects of real estate law, because real estate concepts come up often in almost all other areas of the law, and a solid understanding of real estate law is crucial. We are proud to say that we are a “full-service law firm,” and we believe that our pooled knowledge of many areas of the law improves our service to our clients, especially in regard to real estate law.

What areas of the law don’t involve real estate in some way? Divorce and family law, for example, often involve the negotiation, litigation, and sale of real estate; estate planning and asset protection involve the protection, shielding, and transfer of real estate; business law involves the renting or owning of real estate by businesses; and the list goes on. Our comprehensive knowledge of many areas of the law makes us better real estate lawyers. Our knowledge of real estate, in turn, improves our other areas of practice.

From simple matters, such as creating beneficiary deeds and lease agreements, to more complex issues like foreclosure and real estate litigation, we are happy to assist our clients with all real estate matters. Generally speaking, real estate law can be divided into two common areas of concern: transactions and litigation.

  • Buying or selling real estate
  • Creating or reviewing real estate contracts
  • Creating or reviewing real estate deeds (such as quit claim deeds, warranty deeds, and beneficiary deeds)
  • Lease agreements
  • Contracts for deed
  • Lease-to-own agreements
  • Affidavit of heirship for real estate
  • Mortgages and deeds of trust
  • Promissory notes and financing documents
  • Land trusts

Real Estate Litigation

When a real estate transaction goes bad or when there are two or more parties who are in disagreement about real estate issues (and are unable to agree on a solution), real estate litigation commonly follows. Real estate litigation typically includes matters like the following:

  • Suing to enforce contracts
  • Boundary disputes
  • Quiet title actions
  • Foreclosure
  • Tax foreclosure sales and redemption
  • Landlord/tenant law and evictions

Personal Property Law

In addition to handling a wide array of real estate matters, we also handle many matters relating to personal property law, including the following:

  • Declaratory judgment on vehicle titles
  • Equipment leases or sales
  • Promissory notes and financing documents
  • Insurance disputes regarding personal property claims
  • General personal property law
