Our Comprehensive Legal Services For Residential Real Estate Transactions in Ohio

At Calkins Law Firm, our services encompass every stage of the residential real estate transaction process, ensuring that you receive the necessary legal expertise and support from start to finish. 

1. Contract Drafting and Review

This stage is where many real estate investors get it wrong with inadequate due diligence, poorly drafted contracts, failure to include or consider essential clauses, and lack of negotiation skills. 

Our attorneys assist in the preparation and review of purchase agreements, lease agreements, and other legal documents, ensuring that your interests are protected and that all necessary terms and conditions are clearly defined.

2. Due Diligence

We conduct thorough investigations and examinations to identify any potential legal issues associated with the property, such as title defects, liens, or encumbrances. Our due diligence process helps mitigate risks and ensures a smooth transaction.

3. Negotiations

Our skilled attorneys negotiate on your behalf to secure favorable terms and conditions, whether it's negotiating the purchase price, contingencies, repairs, or other aspects of the transaction. We strive to achieve the best possible outcome for you.

4. Financing and Mortgage Assistance

We provide guidance and assistance in navigating the complexities of financing and mortgage processes, ensuring that you understand your options and helping you secure the most favorable financing terms.

5. Title Examination and Insurance

We conduct thorough title examinations to ensure clear ownership and identify any potential title issues. We also assist in obtaining title insurance to protect your investment from unforeseen claims or defects.


6. Compliance and Regulatory Matters

We ensure that your transaction complies with all relevant laws, regulations, and local ordinances. Our team stays up-to-date with the latest legal requirements, ensuring that your transaction proceeds smoothly and without legal complications.

7. Closing Assistance

We provide comprehensive support during the closing process, including the preparation and review of closing documents, coordination with all parties involved, and ensuring a seamless transfer of ownership.

8. Dispute Resolution

Although our attorneys are skilled in eliminating this, in the event of any disputes or conflicts that may arise during the transaction, we offer skilled representation and assistance in resolving issues through negotiation, mediation, or, if necessary, litigation.

9. Investment Property Transactions

We have extensive experience in assisting clients with purchasing, selling, and managing investment properties. Our services include advising on rental agreements, lease negotiations, property management agreements, and other aspects specific to investment properties.
