Real Estate & RE Development
Real estate developers can greatly benefit from seeking legal counsel from a real estate law firm. Those who practice real estate development law must be skilled in a number of fields in order to properly advise their clients, including tax law, real estate litigation, real estate investment trusts (REITs), and finance.
Real Estate Tax Concerns
As a firm that specializes in both real estate development and corporate tax, we are able to answer any tax-related questions that our clients may have about their real estate investments. This may include questions related to financing real estate development, converting the investment into another type of ownership, and the disposition of real estate assets and interests.
Real Estate Litigation
A number of business disputes may arise for real estate developers, and it’s important that these disputes are resolved with the help of a real estate law firm. These disputes may be related to an alleged breach in a real estate contract, title insurance, quiet title actions, property boundaries, eminent domain, tax liens, mortgages, and landlord-tenant relationships. To resolve these issues, DLG Law Group can represent you in trial, mediation, or arbitration.
Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs)
A REIT is a company that owns income-generating real estate properties. In most REITs, taxable income is paid to shareholders as dividends and shareholders pay income taxes on the amount that they receive. Many investors prefer doing business through a REIT because it allows people to invest in real estate without having to actually purchase or finance a property on their own. In addition, it provides a steady stream of income and portfolio diversification.
Our attorneys can assist clients who are currently doing business through a REIT or would like to convert their existing real estate business into a REIT. Let our team create the structure for your REIT, handle real estate transactions made through the REIT, and represent you during mergers, acquisitions, or liquidations of your REIT. Some REITs are traded on the stock exchange. If your REIT is publicly traded, our attorneys can also ensure that you are compliant with all federal and state regulations.
One of the most important steps of investing in real estate is securing the financing needed to make the purchase of the property or complete the development project. If you are financing a real estate development, be sure that you consult with an attorney prior to completing the transaction. An attorney can carefully review the details of the financing agreement to ensure that making the deal is in your best interests.
Our attorneys can also represent clients who are restructuring existing loans to avoid defaulting. Let an attorney look over the terms of your restructured loan and raise any concerns he may have about the deal.
