An Efficient Team of Attorneys and Experts

First of all, our team of attorneys is constantly supported by in-house and external consultants and experts in this very specific subject. For example, they are appraisers, former IRS agents, buyer/seller locators, land inspectors, and investment planners. In addition, we also rely on the services of former Land Registry officers, soil experts, realtors, and certified land-tax accountants as well. But also, there are land records finders, farm managers, land insurance experts, marketing agents, and environmental consultants. Moreover, there are brokers, real estate translators, notaries public, and financial advisors, among others.

After assigning the most suitable attorney for your specific case, the next step is laying out the best action plan. In general, it should include clear-cut data as regards the required documentation (title deeds, permits, authorizations, land insurance policies, official records, tax-related documentation, etc.). In addition, we take into account processing times, accurate costs, realistic deadlines, and expected results.


This action plan is later reflected in periodic reports, which outline the progress achieved so far, as well as any necessary adjustments. For instance, a potential buyer may submit a counteroffer, which is an alternative response to a received offer, which usually consists of terms different from those of the rejected offer.


Moreover, another very important aspect –which other law firms usually do not take into account- is financing. Our lawyers can help you analyze the most convenient financing options (as well as the interest rates involved) currently available in the market.


In general, a real estate transaction finishes upon reaching a closing (also known as settlement or completion). On a closing date, ownership is officially transferred when the buyer receives a deed from the seller.
