Real estate laws can affect your most valuable assets. We can help you successfully navigate them.

The laws and rules affecting real estate transactions are some of the most complex, pervasive, and far-reaching around. They can also control some of the most important assets that an individual or entity can possess. Unfamiliarity with real estate laws can have a long lasting impact on you or your business. At Gates Wise Schlosser & Goebel, we have successfully assisted diverse clients, from individual home sellers to large corporations, with a wide variety of real estate issues. We are eager to put our knowledge and expertise to work for you.

Selling, purchasing, and leasing real property is an important undertaking. We can help ensure that it’s done correctly.

The permanent nature and significant value of real estate demands that real estate transactions be done correctly the first time around. Unfortunately, the laws and customs that pertain to these transactions are far from simple. At Gates Wise Schlosser & Goebel, we use our experience and knowledge to ensure that your transaction, be it a residential lease or a multimillion dollar commercial property sale, is completed properly. We take time to meet with our clients to obtain a thorough understanding of their intentions and to ensure that their interests are properly represented. We are comfortable with both drafting and reviewing proposed contracts, leases, deeds, easements, or other documents. We pride ourselves on being considerate of time and cost and being able to provide our clients with effective, efficient legal representation.

Unfortunately, even the most cordial transaction has the potential to descend into dispute or even litigation. Some transactional attorneys decide to bow out when litigation seems imminent. Not us. At Gates Wise Schlosser & Goebel, we are just as comfortable in the courtroom as we are at the negotiation table. We are ready and willing to fight to protect our clients’ interests, and will not shy away from litigation where necessary.

Zoning laws, ordinances, and other local regulations can limit the ability to use real property. We can help you navigate them.

Local zoning laws or regulations can limit you or your business’s ability to fully utilize your real property in the way you see fit. In some instances, you may need to petition your local government in order to proceed with your plans. Successful navigation of zoning ordinances requires an attorney who has an in-depth understanding of the laws, procedures, and political realities of local government. At Gates Wise Schlosser & Goebel, we pride ourselves on having the skill and knowledge to assist our clients understand and, where needed, obtain relief from local zoning rules. We have successfully represented numerous individuals and businesses with their zoning petitions in their respective localities. Should a client’s matter require recourse to administrative agencies or the courtroom, we are comfortable in such venues and are eager to represent our clients at every step of the way.

In addition, our knowledge and experience in dealing with zoning or local ordinances also allows us to represent clients who seek to limit or stop violations of zoning laws, or others’ attempts to obtain zoning variances as well. We have appeared before city councils, county boards and successfully defended against zoning changes to negotiating property that would have destroyed our clients’ property values. And if the governing bodies make a mistake, we are confidant taking this matter to the courts. We have successfully accessed the judicial system to prevent several multimillion dollar corporations from inflicting harm on other property owners through attempted unreasonable or improper uses of real property.
