Many potential problems can be avoided or more easily resolved if you consult an attorney before you make an offer to purchase your dream property.
Commercial Real Estate
Buying or leasing property for your business can present complex issues, including:
- financing issues
- zoning restrictions
- environmental regulations
- existing leases on property you purchase
- complex lease terms on property you rent
- and other issues that that require the advice of a commercial real estate attorney.
Many commercial real estate transactions demand a strong negotiator to help you make the deal you want. You also need a lawyer who has the experience to spot potential pitfalls that could adversely affect your business. Consult with Attorney Harry J. Fournier of Fournier Law Firm, Ltd. for professional advice concerning your commercial real estate sales, purchases, and leases.
A short sale occurs when the selling price is less than the amount owed on the property. When the real estate market is weak, sellers who need to leave because of new employment opportunities elsewhere might not have the luxury of waiting for real estate values to increase. Other sellers can no longer afford their mortgage payments and are forced to sell despite having no equity in the property.
Representation by an experienced short sale lawyer provides essential protection for sellers who do not want to be responsible for unexpected debt after the sale is completed. Attorney Harry J. Fournier of Fournier Law Firm, Ltd. has gained substantial experience assisting and advising clients involved in short sales during his more than 15 years of real estate practice.
Residential Real Estate
If you are buying or selling real estate, you will need to understand the dozens of documents involved in your transaction. Most buyers and sellers want to be represented by an attorney at their real estate closing, but you should not wait until then to retain counsel.

Problems that Fournier Law Firm, Ltd. can help you address include:
- Financing issues
