Real Estate law covers a wide variety of subjects from the simple application for building permits to complex high end sales, purchases and exchanges. When most people think of a real estate transaction they think of buying or selling a home. Mr. Montero is an experienced real estate attorney and ready to help you with whatever transaction you might need assistance with.
Few purchases in life, if any, are more important than the purchase of your first home. Aside from the dollar amounts involved, the whole process of buying your first home can be quite daunting. The volatility of the real estate market over the past few years has created opportunities as well as great strife for many homeowners and those looking for a home. While mortgage rates might still be low now, there are still many aspects of buying or selling your home which should not be attempted without an experienced real estate lawyer by your side.
With the recent unprecedented skyrocketing in foreclosures many people have sought to take advantage of falling prices and looked to distressed properties for bargains. Mr. Montero has experience in representing people seeking to purchase homes that are “underwater”, ie… mortgages exceed value of the property. Buying a house in a “short sale” is complicated but can be quite profitable. This is an area that is fraught with pitfalls that should not be taken on without great knowledge and experience. Mr. Montero has both and can guide you through the process.
On the other hand, if you are facing a foreclosure, Mr. Montero has extensive experience assisting homeowners with loan modifications and loss mitigation. Over the past five years there has been much legislation in this field on both the Federal and State level to help homeowners in trouble with their mortgages. From HARP and HAMP to mandatory mediation, Mr. Montero is up to date with all the changes in this quickly changing field and is here to assist you if you are having trouble keeping up with your mortgage payments.
