PA Real Estate Litigation & Transaction Law
A knowledgeable and experienced real estate attorney can be a valuable asset when navigating the often complicated process involved with buying or selling a property. For individuals buying residential property, a real estate lawyer can help interpret the contract and ensure you get the deal you deserve. Although Pennsylvania is one of the few states that does not require an attorney present at closing, property buyers can often benefit from legal support.
Real estate lawyers are also vital in buying and selling commercial property, from drafting the contract to negotiating the deal to completing the final closing. Besides handling the transactional work, these attorneys are often instrumental in conducting due diligence investigations surrounding environmental factors, utilities or critical structural details. In addition, real estate attorneys can provide assistance to resolve issues like boundary disputes, zoning compliances and breaches of contract when disagreements arise.

Real Estate Closing
Although our practice focuses primarily on industrial and commercial real estate, our team has extensive experience handling residential transactions. Having an experienced lawyer present at closing can provide many significant benefits, including:

- Catching any prospective errors.
A property title provides evidence that an owner is in lawful possession of a property. A title insurance policy protects real estate lenders and owners from any potential property loss they might experience because of encumbrances, liens or defects in the property title. The policy also protects against past events involving the property and actions by the people who owned it, including fraud, forgery or encroachments.
MPL Law Firm Real Estate Litigation Services
The attorneys at MPL Law Firm can perform industrial, commercial and residential real estate-based litigation before regulatory agencies, municipalities and federal and state courts. MPL Law Firm has extensive experience handling litigation from inception through the trial and appeal. A significant part of our real estate practice is resolving title and boundary disputes, disclosure cases, construction defect cases, failed real estate deals and evictions involving landlords and tenants.
We also have extensive knowledge of the Pennsylvania Uniform Planned Communities Act, the Pennsylvania Uniform Condominium Act and other applicable laws to protect condominium and planned community residents.
During the initial consultation, we review the case’s strengths and weaknesses with each client to determine possible alternative resolutions and whether the cost of litigation makes sense.
