Supporting Clients in San Diego County

Without the necessary foresight and careful preparation, real estate transactions can become complex and time-consuming endeavours. There are numerous potential legal issues, and both buyers and sellers can greatly benefit from the assistance of an experienced real estate attorney.

At my firm, the Law Office of Donald Schiffer, I provide guidance to clients throughout the process of purchasing or selling residential or commercial properties, and during real estate development activities. Leveraging my more than 30 years of legal practice, I scrutinize every facet of your transaction with the intent to reduce your liability and ensure a seamless closing.

Comprehensive Guidance on Real Estate Sales and Purchases

My extensive experience in both the legal and financial sides of real estate transactions offers a solid foundation for my insight into the buying, selling, leasing, or development of residential or commercial properties. Utilizing the knowledge I have amassed over decades of practice, I assist clients with numerous aspects of real estate transactions, including:

  • Documentation: I meticulously review all documents and contracts involved in the transaction to ensure your agreement is accurately represented and I strive to minimize your potential exposure.
  • Contracts: I have a wealth of experience dealing with real estate contracts which allows me to negotiate effectively with or on behalf of contractors, developers, landlords, lease applicants, and homeowner associations. I also negotiate and draft easements and reciprocal easement agreements and the necessary documentation for common interest developments, including drafting Conditions, Covenants, and Restrictions and forming homeowner associations (HOAs).
  • Commercial leases: I offer assistance to both landlords and tenants in drafting and negotiating commercial leases.
  • Tax credit financing transactions: I guide nonprofit housing developers in taking advantage of the special financing options available to their organizations.

My background in real estate and finance equips me to provide efficient and cost-effective representation to expedite your real estate transaction towards a swift conclusion. Unlike in larger firms where you might interact with multiple attorneys, at my firm you will receive focused attention and personal communication from me.
