We Can Help With Your Real Estate Transactions

The old saying that for most people their home is the largest single purchase they will make in their lifetime is true for a reason. Have you checked real estate prices in Pennsylvania recently? Since the Commonwealth was created, no new land has been added. Land is inherently limited, and scarcity coupled with demand creates value.

Residential Real Estate

When you walk into the office of a real estate transaction lawyer for a closing or with other legal questions surrounding a piece of property, you may often come away more puzzled than when you arrived. With the value of many parcels of property and home ever increasing, it is essential that you understand the mechanics of your real estate transaction, as you may be paying for it, literally and figuratively, for the next 30 years.

From paperwork at your closing to knowing what value, if any, is provided by a home inspection, our attorney at North Star Legal Services, LLC, can explain every element of a transaction in a down-to-earth manner that ensures you really understand what is happening and why. We help people in the Harrisburg area and throughout Pennsylvania deal with complex real estate issues.

Commercial Real Estate

When it comes to commercial real estate transactions, it is essential that you have an attorney who understands the intricate and perplexing array of laws, regulations and rules that come with any deal. There are the property laws, there are land use regulations and zoning laws, there are environmental and pollution laws, and there are the complexities of financing.

For many businesses, their exposure to real estate may be further complicated by a commercial lease, either as a landlord or a tenant. Lease terms are critical, and understanding your rights and obligations under a lease is critical. How all of these laws and contracts work together and what it means for your business can be incomprehensible.
