Real Estate

Kessler Law offers its clients specialized real estate expertise.  We represent clients in the acquisition, financing, leasing, joint venture and sale of commercial, multi-family and residential properties.

At Kessler Law we have the experience and accessibility expected of a real estate boutique. We are aware of market conditions, allowing us to effectively counsel our clients and negotiate transactions.  Ultimately, our strengths are understanding and helping our clients realize their business goals.

The primary areas of Kessler Law’s real estate practice include:

Investment Real Estate

Our firm regularly represents real estate investors.  In addition to traditional real estate acquisition, financing and sales, our clients are involved in purchase of notes and mortgages, deed-in-lieu of foreclosure transactions, Sheriff’s sales and and sale-leaseback transactions. We have the expertise and resources to handle these transactions from start to finish in a cost-effective manner.  Our attorneys, paralegals and staff have particular expertise in resolving complex real estate title issues.

Commercial Acquisitions and Sales

Our firm represents investors in the acquisition and sale of commercial, office, warehouse, industrial and multi-family properties, including negotiation of purchase and sale agreements, due diligence investigations, title issues, purchase money and institutional mortgage financing, the purchase of notes and mortgages and closings.

Commercial Leasing

We have experience in all facets of commercial leasing.  We prepare, negotiate and review leases and subleases for office, industrial, retail and warehouse space, as well as rooftop antenna leases and commercial brokerage agreements.  We also handle commercial and residential landlord-tenant litigation.

Loan Restructuring

We represent lenders and borrowers in debt restructuring and the workout of real estate loans. Please see our lending and finance practice section for further information.

Residential Closings

We represent individuals and investors in the purchase, sale and refinancing of residential properties, including properties purchased at Sheriff’s sales, REOs and short sales.  Our services include title and contract review, financing and inspection reports and closing.

Real Estate Tax Appeals

We are active in contesting real estate assessments and valuations.  Many of our clients are finding that their municipal property tax assessments exceed the value of their properties. We prosecute commercial and residential property tax appeals and have realized significant savings for our clients.
