Business Law and Transactional Law

Every contract you come across needs to be modified specifically for you and your circumstances before you sign the dotted line. Form contracts widely circulated on the internet or within large businesses can often be disregarded in court because they do not contain the required specificity to contain necessary terms for an agreement. Form contracts also ignore some of the costliest mistakes in agreements, including remedies and directions after a breach occurs.

The other pitfall is a contract that has been reviewed by the other side’s attorney, but not yours. The terms will typically favor one side, and the other party makes the mistake that simply because it is a friendly transaction, it equates to everyone’s interests being protected. Absolutely not. Heather offers budget conscious contract review rates so that when you sign, you know someone has your back.

Real Estate and Property Law

It is becoming more common for real estate agents and brokers to draft all the necessary documents to close a property transaction. With the value of homes rising, this is too risky and many times results in things left undone, such as the proper recordation of easements and land use agreements. Some things are better left to attorneys, especially when it comes to valuable assets such as property. Heather can review and help draft all agreements related to the sale, purchase, and lease of property so you know exactly what you are getting and your claim to it is not challenged.

Home Owner Association Law/ Rights, Remedies, and Enforcement

HOAs are an extremely valuable commodity as they create pleasant and aesthetic communities to live in. However, HOAs are also non-profits that rely on the volunteer efforts of its community owners to occupy and run the Board of Directors. Many times, a Board gets sidetracked by inexperienced owners, or spearheaded by ego-driven owners who assume no one cares enough to pay attention. It is crucial, therefore, that both Boards and homeowners consult with an attorney when it comes to interpreting and enforcing the CCRs. Heather has represented numerous Boards and their respective homeowners, and is well-versed in the particular laws that govern these communities.
