Real Estate Law

For most individuals and small business owners, a residential or commercial real estate transaction is a major and sometimes life-changing investment. Whether you are selling or buying a new home or business property, or entering into a lease for a home, apartment or business location, you need legal representation to explain the issues and provide you with the necessary legal expertise. You want a lawyer equipped to handle major transactions, but still ready to listen to the smallest of concerns. At the Law offices of George B. Handelsman, P.A, we provide big firm resources and small-firm personal service in all aspects of real estate. Call us before you sign a sales or lease agreement, and have your questions answered by a professional trained to advise you in these real estate matters.
