New Jersey Real Estate Attorney Tackles Complex Property Issues in Essex, Morris and Passaic Counties

Committed Roseland lawyer handles all your property sale needs

Purchasing property is not a simple matter and usually involves complicated legal arrangements with multiple parties. At Gerald P. Scala, Esq. in Roseland, I assist clients in Essex, Morris and Passaic counties with various issues related to residential and commercial real estate purchases, including drafting and reviewing sales contracts, conducting closings, reviewing lending documents and overseeing commercial property purchases. Representing clients since 1973, I have seen a wide breadth of legal and market changes and understand how to adapt in order to help you reach the best possible outcome. I will give your matter close attention and work to identify and solve issues that could cause future problems.

Reputable law firm works to protect your contractual rights

A central component of any real estate sale is the critical paperwork needed to complete the deal. Examples of documents commonly used include:

  • Sales contracts
  • Lending documents
  • Deeds
  • Documents showing the chain of title

These documents set out the rights and obligations of each party and are typically standardized, but there are still potential issues to identify and address. I know the pitfalls to look for in these contracts and will keep your interests in mind as I perform a thorough review of each document. Depending on the particular circumstances, a standard contract might not be sufficient, so I also draft customized sales agreements, which allows me to address your specific needs and goals. You can rely on my decades of experience to keep your rights fully protected.

Accomplished advocate will strongly represent your interests at closing

The last step in the sales process is the closing. Since this is the final moment before a sale is completed, it is important to review the documents and verify they represent the sale as agreed to by the parties. While uncommon, issues could arise at this point, and having an attorney present to review the papers and respond to any problems can help prevent the sale from falling through. I know what to expect at closing and will work to secure a smooth transition that gives you the ability to move forward with confidence.

Experienced counselor handles all aspects of commercial property sales

Sales of commercial property often involve many unique considerations that can affect the transfer. For example, legal issues pertaining to land use or zoning could become an obstacle depending on how the buyer intends to use the property. Further, applicable environmental regulations should be noted as well as the financing structures used to fund the purchase. You need an attorney with strong attention to detail and sufficient knowledge of the law to ensure all legal requirements are met. I bring both qualities to the table and will be the effective advocate you need to keep your deal on track.
