When Pennsylvania and New Jersey 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.

Land Use and Zoning

The attorneys in Friedman Schuman’s Land Use and Zoning Practice represent property owners, developers, landlords and institutions in connection with zoning applications, land development and subdivision submissions and related land use matters.

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 on a sample 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 is established by the county 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 for office, retail, industrial, or institutional use.
