The law firm of Hillman & Lucas, PC, maintains a vigorous real estate law practice from San Francisco's North Bay, east to Sacramento, and throughout Solano County and surrounding areas. This area is home to one of the world's most coveted fertile wine-growing regions in Napa Valley, and lies between two of California's most populous and popular cities, including the state's capital. Real property, both residential and business/commercial, is highly prized and the frequent subject of purchases and sales, investment, and development.
The firm's real estate practice offers clients a diversity of general real estate services. Whether interested in the purchase or sale of real property, or the financing and development of residential or commercial property, our attorneys possess the knowledge and skill to negotiate transactions and prepare documents that will further our clients' interests while protecting their legal rights into the future.
On the commercial side, transactions often involve complex legal issues and business dealings with multiple parties such as investors, developers, and contractors. Lease arrangements can run the gamut from single-unit office space to shopping malls. Land use planning, zoning laws, and environmental regulations at every level of government create a web of complicated legal obstacles that must be successfully navigated to move a project from paper to reality.
The firm's lawyers are experienced litigators as well, and have successfully represented numerous landlords in commercial and residential settings. We have defended both brokers and homeowners in suits involving professional liability and real estate transactions.
Additionally, we represent clients in the wide range of disputes which can arise with commercial property owners as well as residential homeowners. These disputes can arise at any stage of a transaction and may involve transfer disclosure statements, title defects and suits to quiet title, allegations of fraudulent conveyance of deeds, or requests for specific performance. Post-transaction, disputes can arise at any time between joint tenants, adjacent property owners, or with contractors hired to improve a property. Common causes of litigation include property line, boundary and easement disputes, and construction defects involving matters from design and workmanship to soil and slope stability.
