Real Estate Law

Real estate has traditionally been an important part of creating wealth. At The Ballard Law Corporation, we understand California and many local real estate laws and the repercussions they can have on your life and finances. Legal protection in real estate transactions is particularly important in a volatile market.

Real estate transactions typically represent the largest transactions in most people’s lives and for many businesses. Real estate brokers and agents play an important role in marketing property and evaluating purchases; however, one usually should not rely solely upon them for drafting or reviewing contracts, escrow instructions or loan documents. Our experienced team can guide you through a variety of personal and commercial real estate actions, including:

  • Real estate contracts and closings for purchase, sale, or exchange
  • Clearing title defects and tax lien issues
  • Land use and zoning law
  • Financing, including private financing and using retirement funds
  • Leasing as a commercial or residential landlord or tenant
  • Determining how to take title, especially when using trusts
  • Acquisition and redevelopment
  • Property, transfer, income, and estate tax issues

We find that, most of the time, our review of even a smaller transaction saves the client more money than their legal fee. Businesses, individuals, and families throughout California turn to Ron Ballard and The Ballard Law Corporation for creatively structuring real estate deals.
