Real Estate

 

Residential real estate closings make up the majority of our business.  For this reason, we are able to provide a highly competent and efficient service at competitive rates.  We interact daily with other professionals critical to real estate transactions - mortgage lenders, real estate agents, other real estate attorneys, and municipal offices.  These relationships allow us to provide our clients an advantage over other firms that handle several practice areas.

Given our proximity to the Canadian border, many of our clients are Canadians.  This presents certain challenges that we are accustomed to handling.  Specifically, Canadians selling US property are subject to a withholding tax known as FIRPTA (Federal Investment in Real Property Tax Act).  Please see our Resources for Canadians page for more information.
