Having a Good Real Estate Attorney Makes a Difference

Did you know that in Illinois, homeowners can register a property as a Homestead to put it off limits to creditors? It’s meant to prevent homeowners from becoming homeless when the economy crashes. There are a lot of limits and rules around it, though, so you’ll need a smart real estate attorney. There are also real estate laws specific to Chicago, including lease and rental agreement laws, security deposit laws, commercial development laws, and many more.

Our point is that there is a lot more to real estate law in Chicago than just processing purchase and sale agreements, title paperwork, and such. That said, you also do want a real estate attorney who performs those services and more with both legal expertise and financial insight, because how the paperwork is put together can significantly affect your long-term financial goals, including tax liabilities, access to cash when you need it, estate transitions, and a whole lot more.

The Gunderson Law Firm possesses that expertise and insight, reinforced by years of experience and long-term connections throughout Chicago’s real estate, finance, and insurance industries. In fact, our attorneys are also title insurance agents for several of the top title insurance companies in the world. Whether you are a couple wanting to buy or build a house, a corporation converting commercial properties to residential, or a commercial developer looking to change the Chicago skyline, The Gunderson Law Firm can help you get through the zoning boards, historical commissions, licensing boards, easement granters, and more with the right papers in the right places, addressed by the right people at the right times to move your project(s) forward and get all the i’s dotted and t’s crossed correctly…and as smoothly as humanly possible.
