San Diego Real Estate Attorneys

Real estate contracts in San Diego and throughout California can become quite complex.  Many transactions attempt to use the standardized forms, but the transaction itself just doesn’t fit into that boilerplate.  This can be true for the sale or purchase or raw land, commercial or residential real estate, as well as the structuring of a complex transaction involving the creation of a new entity and the division of ownership and tax benefits across a broad group of investors.  It is important to work with experienced San Diego real estate attorneys who can expertly guide you through the transaction, and protect your interests at each step of the way.

Real estate contracts must do more than capture the agreement between the parties, such as the terms, contingencies, representation and warranties and escrow instructions.  The development of a contract should clearly establish the responsibilities of each party, and provide a roadmap that results in the completion of a successful and profitable transaction.  An effective real estate contract clearly identifies potential issues that can arise along the way, and establishes the manner in which disputes will be resolved to ensure that the transaction has the greatest likelihood of completion.

Residential and Commercial Leases

Whether you are a landlord managing a portfolio of residential properties, or a commercial tenant preparing to negotiate a commercial build-out or commercial lease, the attorneys at the Watkins Firm are prepared to ensure that an effective agreement is negotiated, executed and enforced.  Commercial leases can become quite complicated, especially when improvements to the leased space are to be included as part of the transaction.  Questions of utilities, dedicated parking, future expansion, deferred lease payments, payment processing, even repairs and updates must be answered and included to protect our client’s interests.
