At Rutkowski Law Firm, We Look Out For You
Our skilled lawyers work with individuals and businesses on transactions that include:
When there is no real estate broker involved, we can help guide you through the completion of a sale. There are many legal requirements for a real estate sale, even if it is a for-sale-by-owner transaction. The Rutkowski Law Firm team is experienced in all steps of a real estate transaction, and we will work to facilitate a seamless transaction.
Most types of purchases of real estate would best be served by a purchase agreement. But each purchase agreement should be different, since every piece of property is unique. Our attorneys both review and draft purchase agreements, making sure each is tailored to the needs of the parties involved.
We represent both individuals and businesses entering into lease agreements. And just like a purchase agreement, each lease agreement should not be cookie cutter, but instead tailored to your specific agreement. Whether you are the landlord or the interested tenant, we are experienced in reviewing and drafting lease agreements.
Landlords and tenants each have separate rights important to protect when leasing property. Our attorneys are familiar with the legal process for properly enforcing provisions of a lease agreement, which is crucial for our landlord clients. We also represent tenants seeking to protect their rights against landlord action or inaction.
Seller’s Disclosure Statement
A seller’s disclosure statement is required by statute in Michigan for most residential home sales and, as such, proper documentation must be completed prior to closing. We assist sellers in producing such disclosure statements. We also help buyers with reviewing a seller’s disclosure statement.
At Rutkowski Law Firm, we are well versed in deeds, including writing deeds and filing deeds. We also have experience in drafting out-of-state deeds, as every state is different on what they require and want to see in a deed. Whatever your specific needs are for creating a deed, we will be able to provide you with assistance to make sure that the deed is properly written and recorded.
All new building constructions, whether they are residential or commercial, require extensive paperwork, permits, and contracts. We provide legal services for all stages of the construction process. Whether you need a simple contract reviewed, a contract drafted for your specific needs, or require representation for the whole construction process, we will provide you with assistance along the way.
