Ensure Successful Transactions
One of the most important resources for parties to a real estate transaction is an experienced attorney who can ensure the purchase, sale, transfer, or lease is completed successfully, without costly delays. As real estate licensees who have participated in real estate transactions not only as attorneys but as Realtors, the attorneys at Cuttone & Associates have unique insight regarding real estate transactions and how to complete them without complications.
Commercial Real Estate Transactions
Because the nature of a tenant’s or landlord’s business have such an impact on the terms and conditions needed in a lease or other tenancy document, commercial landlords and tenants should avoid pre-printed contracts in order to ensure their interests are protected. A commercial lease carries large financial implications and risks, and the parties should treat it as such.

Construction and Development Contracts
For builders, developers, contractors, and investors, the contracts for commercial and residential construction projects must meet the scope, timing, and expectations of all parties involved to prevent costly delays and disputes.
Title Review and Title Insurance
One of the most important legal aspects of commercial real estate purchase and sale transactions is the process of clearing title of any liens or outstanding encumbrances prior to transfer of ownership, and obtaining advice regarding insurance title, once marketable.
