Buying or selling a home is a very exciting time in a person’s life. A new home often represents a new chapter in one’s life.

Commercial Leasing

The attorneys at Friedman Schuman have decades of experience representing investors, businesses, and developers in all aspects of commercial leasing.

There are many different types of commercial leases, so it is important to have an attorney who can make sure you are getting the best lease for your situation.

Condominiums

When Pennsylvania residents are considering their housing options, some may opt to purchase a condominium instead of a home. In other cases, current condominium residents may decide they want to expand and purchase property instead. Real estate transactions for condominiums are somewhat different than transactions in other types of property. It is important to have knowledgeable legal guidance through the real estate process to ensure that your rights are protected when so much money is at stake.

Easements

Property disputes happen more often than many people realize, especially to those who own landlocked property. One way to remedy landlocked property is to request an easement from the court. An easement allows a landlocked person to use another person’s property to get off of their own. There are several types of easements that may be acquired depending on the situation. Regardless of which easement is necessary, it is important to have the legal representation of an experienced attorney who can protect your rights.

Land Use and Zoning

When it comes to land use in Pennsylvania, it seems as though everyone has an opinion about what should be done. When disputes about land use and zoning come to fruition, the representation of an attorney is necessary to protect your land and your rights. The attorneys in Friedman Schuman’s Land Use and Zoning Practice represent a wide range of clients across a variety of industries.

New Residential Property Construction

When an individual makes the decision that they want to build a new home, it is often the start of an exciting new chapter. As exciting as building a home is, whether it is based off a model home or it is custom to your preferences, there are a lot of factors that will be taken into consideration at every step of the process. It is important that you have the guidance of an experienced real estate attorney to help you navigate from the day you buy the land until the day you finally get to move in.

Tax Assessment Appeals

Both residential and commercial property owners in Pennsylvania are subject to paying property taxes. In Pennsylvania, these taxes go towards funding schools, municipality, and the county. When determining how much each property owner will pay in taxes, an assessment will be done to determine the value of the property. If a property is sold for a different amount than what it is actually valued at, the taxes may fluctuate. After an assessment has been completed, both the property owner and the taxing district have the opportunity to request an appeal.

Tenant Lease Transactions

When a person is considering leasing a space as a tenant, it is important that they retain the service of an experienced attorney to guide them through and make sure their best interests are protected. Tenants need to have strong legal representation before agreeing to a lease, regardless of whether it is residential or commercial in nature.
