South Dakota Real Estate Attorneys
Most property transactions are consummated without any problems. But when things go wrong, they can really go wrong. Consulting a real estate attorney on the front end can prevent many conflicts, and early legal intervention in disputes can help protect your investment and limit the expense, time and headaches. The most important document in a real estate transaction is the purchase contract. The purchase contract should be drafted by an attorney that has experience in real estate law.
The law office of Richardson, Wyly, Wise, Sauck & Hieb, LLP provides comprehensive counsel and representation for residential and commercial property transactions, land use and litigation. Serving South Dakota, we protect the interests of owners, buyers, sellers, landlords, tenants, developers and lenders.
Our attorneys will educate you on your rights and options so you can take appropriate steps to investigate your proposed transaction, such as when a property is sold “as is”, or there is a question of ownership and adverse possession. Our attorneys will advise you on potentially troublesome real estate transactions, such as seller carrybacks, wrap-around contracts, or sales/leaseback transactions, and will draft a contract that limits your liability.
