We also represent equity financing arrangements such as partnerships, joint ventures, and syndications.
Our widely respected Indiana real estate attorneys participate in training programs related to real estate and agency law issues and prepare legislative proposals affecting the real estate industry. Our Indianapolis real estate attorneys are viewed as thought leaders and resources in the real estate law field.
Indiana Real Estate Law Services
Commercial real estate laws regulate selling or transferring property for business use. Our skilled commercial real estate attorneys understand these laws and how they relate to commercial leases, financing, property and land use, zoning, development, and real estate transfers.
Through our residential real estate law services, we represent buyers, sellers, brokers, agents, and individual property owners. We handle issues with purchase agreements, purchase disputes, performance and damage claims, foreclosures and evictions, real estate disclosures, land contracts, easements, rights of way, boundary and title disputes, and deed gaps and overlaps on title issues.
Planning, zoning, and land use comprise the bulk of our real estate development law services. We work with governmental entities to help craft zoning ordinances, as well as with zoning boards, property owners, businesses, developers, builders, and real estate investors. Whether the issue is a single variance related to residential construction, or annexing and rezoning a large mixed-use (residential and commercial) development through a planned unit development, our attorneys have the experience to successfully and quickly guide the homeowner or developer through complexities of the various land use processes.
Because real estate and construction are complex industries with many moving parts, dollars, and emotions involved, disputes often arise. Disputes may develop over breached contracts, lack of progress, defective materials, defects of design, staffing concerns, injuries, construction delays, purchase agreements, land use, permitting, zoning, construction mitigation, drainage impacts, or unforeseen and undisclosed environmental issues that may arise later in the development process.
When it comes to acquisitions and dispositions—especially involving leasing, sales, and tax—we have broad experience helping a variety of real estate clients. Our attorneys assist everyone from individual homeowners and small builders to large developers, governmental entities, and farmers. We help them sell or acquire land in different capacities.
Eminent domain is a government’s right to take private property for public use. A government or government agency may exercise this power only if it provides just compensation to the property owners. There are many statutory requirements to initiate a condemnation proceeding. There are also many facets to the interpretation of “just” compensation and “best use” of property. That is where we come in.
We represent private property owners and governmental and municipal entities in issues involving condemnation, including undervalued appraisals, highest and best use, impact challenges, unconstitutional taking, just compensation, engineering challenges, notices of acquisition and rights of entry.
Real Estate Finance Law
When real estate investors need to secure funds for impending deals, they often seek capital from outside sources in order to purchase or renovate property. Our experienced real estate finance attorneys can help counsel clients in all types of real estate deals, including mortgages, notes, trust deeds, land contracts, debt financing, equity financing and many types of creative financing.
We also prepare and review purchase agreements, mortgage documents, easements, title documents and transfer documents. We understand that real estate finance is heavily influenced by the market, and we are always adapting and changing along with it.
