Here are some things a Utah real estate lawyer does.

If you are an experienced real estate owner or investor, you may have used a real estate lawyer before. But if you haven’t, you are not alone. Many buyers, sellers, and investors have never used a real estate attorney. To help you better understand what a Utah real estate lawyer does, please read on.  

What Issues Does a Utah Real Estate Lawyer Handle?

1. Contracts

Contracts are some of the most important documents in real estate. The fact that they are legally binding allows different parties to engage in transactions and know what to expect from one another. Things can still happen – like someone not honoring their obligations in the contract – but generally speaking, contracts are quite reliable.

However, not all contracts are created equal. A poorly written contract may fail to protect you the way you expect it to. Whether you are drafting a contract or considering signing one, we encourage you to speak to a Utah real estate lawyer first. Our firm can make sure that your interests are protected.

2. Leases

Owning rental property in Utah can be financially rewarding, but you need a good lease to protect yourself and your property. Whether you are renting to commercial or residential tenants, we can help you draft and customize a lease that will accomplish your goals as an owner.

3. Dispute Resolutions

Even with a perfect contract, real estate disputes can still happen. There are numerous issues that can lead to disputes, including:

  • Boundaries
  • Easements
  • Right of way
  • Disclosures
  • And more

There are a few things you can attempt to resolve on your own, but generally, a Utah real estate lawyer is the best person to help you resolve such disputes. Our attorneys know Utah real estate law and we know how to apply it to your dispute. Once we know the details, we can use the law to resolve the dispute while protecting your interests.

Real estate disputes don’t always end the way you want them to – but they are much more likely to end in your favor if you have an attorney to represent you.

4. Evictions

Utah’s landlord-tenant law is very strict about how to perform an eviction. You must adhere to the law exactly to avoid future legal troubles. Our legal team is well-versed in Utah evictions and we can apply our knowledge to your specific situation. Let us know what you are dealing with and we will identify the most promising solution. And you can depend on us to start on your case quickly.
