Real Estate and Conveyancing
The Real Estate and Conveyancing Practice Group at Shechtman Halperin Savage, LLP has the experience and talent to handle almost any real estate matter, from a routine purchase or sale of residential real estate, to more complex matters involving transferring, leasing, financing, developing, or subdividing residential, commercial, or industrial properties. Throughout each transaction, we provide quality service in a cost-effective manner.
Real Estate Transactions – The attorneys and paralegals at SHS provide comprehensive real estate transaction advice to buyers, sellers, developers, and residential lenders throughout New England. Our experienced team can guide you through any transaction, whether it is structuring a complex multi-party purchase and sale transaction, navigating a tax-deferred like-kind exchange, leasing a property, completing a sale/leaseback, or any other arrangement regarding residential, commercial, and/or industrial real estate.
Financing – A significant portion of our practice is devoted to structuring, negotiating, and documenting financing in various types of transactions, including commercial lending, real estate lending, and asset-based financing. Our institutional lenders can also expect ongoing advice and assistance to ensure compliance with all state and local consumer laws and regulations in their particular states.
Expert Guidance – Our Real Estate and Conveyancing Practice Group is staffed with experienced attorneys and paralegals that understand and appreciate the various needs of our clients, either as buyers, sellers, and/or lenders. We are cognizant of the time constraints imposed by the nature of these transactions and the secondary lending market, and we work to not only meet, but to exceed our client’s expectations in this regard. In addition, many of the attorneys in this group are approved agents and/or attorneys for major title insurance companies in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, giving this group the ability to satisfy the title insurance requirements of both lenders and purchasers in the jurisdictions in which the Group practices. Our expertise helps us to serve our clients efficiently and professionally and to provide them with the expert guidance they need to successfully complete each transaction.
Convenient Service – From the preparation and negotiation of documents through pre-closing and post-closing stages, SHS provides our clients with the best in service and convenience. We are skilled in the use of the latest computer software and technology to help maximize the efficiency and economy of each transaction. If more convenient than meeting at our offices, we will also travel to conduct closings at lender branch offices, offices of land evidence records or registries, and/or at the business or home of the customer. We know that business cannot always confine itself to “normal” business hours, so we are willing to schedule closings in the evening or on the weekend if the needs of the lender or its customer so require.
