Real Estate

Residential Buying and Selling
We have handled hundreds of residential purchases and sales for households and businesses all over Dane County and nearby counties.  We can handle every part of the sale or purchase side of these transactions, from negotiations to drafting Offers or Counter-Offers and Amendments, to all the work needed to complete a successful closing.

Easements and Property Agreements
Sometimes property owners give up some of their property rights to allow another person or company to use or enter the property without possessing it. A very common example is driveway easements.  Also utility companies typically have easements to run pipes underground or wires over someone else’s property. A neighbor without access to a road may negotiate with you for an easement to drive through your property to get to a road.  Many properties in cities have joint driveway agreements where two neighbors essentially share one driveway between the two of them. If you are buying property, it is important to confirm the details of any easements or other property agreements that apply to property before you finalize the purchase.

Our real estate attorneys have drafted and negotiated easements and joint property agreements for many clients and can help you too.​

Co-ownership Agreements
When a small group of friends, or relatives want to all co-own a property, clear agreements about how to operate are very important.  Creating a cooperative can be an option, but not always.  Our attorneys have extensive experience helping establish policies and rules set forth in formal co-ownership agreements, and can help create a legally enforceable document that meets the individual needs of your group.

Real Estate Litigation
We have years of experience handling litigation related to real estate matters.  Most real estate transactions can be accomplished in such a way that everyone leaves them feeling happy, and the buyers remain happy about the property for years to come.  However, sometimes things go wrong and the potential for litigation arises.  Our attorneys have handled dozens of real estate litigation cases, and are experienced at resolving these disputes, and also at taking them through trial.
