Legal support for real estate developers

Real estate development can be a highly lucrative business in the state of Nevada. There are many communities in and around Henderson that are growing rapidly that developers may wish to buy into and capitalize on as the area becomes more populated and businesses seek to establish themselves in the market. However, as much as it can be profitable for some developers, real estate development can be a financial pitfall for others who are not prepared to manage the legal aspects of the process.

What is a quiet title action?

In order to understand a quiet title action, a reader of this Nevada-based legal blog must first understand what it means to hold title to a parcel of land. A title is tool through, which an individual gains legal ownership of a piece of land and attains the right to use it for their intended purposes. When property changes hands so too does the title to that property and through a title search a person may learn the parameters of their land's boundaries, who previously owned it and other important information.

Support and representation for Nevada land owners

One of the biggest investments that a Nevada resident may make during their lifetime is in real estate. Real estate ownership can involve land, the improvements on it and other property interests. Land ownership grants individuals the right to develop their properties the way that they want within the confines of the laws, regulations and rules that govern it.

What is the purpose of zoning?

Building a new structure or buying a new parcel of real estate can be an exceptionally exciting time for a Nevada resident. They may see in that property an opportunity to improve their financial situation, all while providing their community with a tool for growth. Individuals who endeavor into real estate investing and development have a great deal of autonomy over what they can buy and how they can use it, but anyone who chooses to purchase real property should be aware of the zoning laws that may regulate their land's use.

Due diligence and real estate investing in Nevada

Not all buyers of real estate are in it to find a new home or find a location for a business. Some are in it for investing purposes. Over the last decade or so most people have probably seen television shows about "flippers," people who buy old houses and buildings to renovate them and put them back on the market to try to turn a profit. Real estate can be a lucrative area for investment, but there are always legal concerns in any real estate transaction, no matter the motive for the purchase.

The financial impact of a real estate dispute

Most people in Nevada who are involved in any type of real estate transaction usually hope that it goes smoothly. Unfortunately, the reality is that any time real estate changes hands, there is the potential for something to go wrong. Different factual scenarios in any given case can lead to disputes that may leave the parties facing off in a courtroom. The financial impact of such a situation can leave both parties worse off.

Disputes about purchase agreements focus on the details

In almost any real estate transaction, the primary document that is the focus of all parties involved is the purchase agreement. When this agreement is signed, many of the varying aspects of the transaction are locked into place. As a result, any disputes about purchase agreements can be conflicts that are heavily focused on the details of the document - the wording and phrasing that will, in all likelihood, ultimately resolve the dispute.

Could you find yourself in a dispute over property insurance?

The most popular refrain about why any type of insurance is necessary is simple: peace of mind. This is true whether it is health insurance, life insurance or, for those who own real estate, property insurance. However, as anyone who has ever had to make any type of insurance claim knows, insurance policies can be quite complex, leaving people wondering what type of incidents are covered by their insurance. Could Nevada residents find themselves in a dispute over their property insurance policy?

Protecting your real estate rights in Nevada

Details are the crucial underpinning of any legal transaction but are most important in real estate transactions. Whether you are buying or selling real estate, the details in the negotiations and the resulting legal documents involved provide direction for not only the parties involved in the transaction, but all others who have an interest in the fact that the ownership of real estate is changing hands.

Could issues with your property boundaries lead to litigation?

Any individual or business that purchases real estate probably likes to think that the boundaries of that property can be readily identified. Unfortunately, that isn't always true. While one property owner may believe that a certain boundary line applies, a neighbor may disagree. So, could issues with property boundaries lead to litigation in Nevada?
