Residential Real Estate Issues

Whether you are interested in buying your first home or you are looking to sell a home and purchase a new one, dealing with residential real estate can be an overwhelming process. Most people will purchase a home over the course of their lives, but finding the right home for your budget, location and requirements can be a challenge. Our Waterbury real estate lawyer will walk you through this process, from helping you find the right mortgage, to assisting you with negotiations, to making sure that the closing goes smoothly.

Commercial Real Estate Matters

Those looking to buy real estate for commercial purposes face unique challenges that residential real estate buyers do not face. You will have to deal with zoning issues, contamination to the property and increased mortgage rates. We will use our experience to walk you through this process in Waterbury and make sure that you find the right commercial property for your purposes.

Renting Laws

If you are renting out a building to tenants or you are renting an apartment, various types of arguments between tenant and landlord can arise.
