Real Estate Law

Real Estate Law

Promoters of Growth and Sustainability.

In any legal transaction, there can be issues that fall into the realm of real estate. From divorce and estate planning to municipal development and small business, real property is central to wealth and growth.

Melchert Hubert Sjodin has not only represented the real estate interests of a growing metropolitan area in economic development and city planning, we’ve also served individuals and businesses in the strategic decisions that promote growth and a sustainable lifestyle.

With our affiliated title company, Title Mark, MHS examines more titles than any law firm in the state. Title Mark provides both residential and commercial closing services along with abstracting services, owners and encumbrance reports, and home equity searches. Among a handful of firms in Minnesota that represent municipalities in complex land use deals, we are experienced in the high stakes of public as well as private development.

Within our law firm we also represent clients in construction lending, 1031 exchanges, eminent domain/condemnation issues, mechanics liens, and residential and commercial sales and development. We understand zoning and municipal structures to assist with a business relocation as well as residential development on area lakes.

Our real estate attorneys are on hand to advise lenders with a simple transactional question or to represent private investors in the structuring of a real estate deal. Building these relationships at all levels is at the heart of our growing real estate practice.

Our areas of specialty in real estate law include:

  • Real estate contracts, purchase agreements and option agreements – as well as the ability to advise as simply or strategically as you need on the fundamentals of finance, deeds and mortgages.
  • Boundary disputes and boundary line issues, along with easements, property splits and subdivision of land.
  • Mortgage foreclosures and related matters such as proceedings subsequent.
  • Quiet title disputes and related title issues that may include Torrens title registration, easements and surveying errors.
  • Setting up and monitoring leasing transactions whether they’re office leases, ground leases, retail or medical leases.
  • The creation of common interest communities such as condominiums and townhomes, plus setting up and working with Homeowners’ Associations.

Whether your project is small or large, simple or complex, we’d like to hear about it.
