For sellers, our attorneys carefully draft a contract of sale that protects our client until the sale is complete. For buyers, we make certain that each provision in the contract which is usually prepared by the seller’s attorney is in your best interest. If not, we negotiate to protect your interests. Additionally, we get involved with:

  • Title searches
  • Surveys
  • Insurance
  • Property inspections

Foreclosures – We at Kreamer Arney Wait & Bottaro, L.C. represent both lenders and property owners in foreclosure actions. We address every requirement to bring these complicated procedures to a conclusion. Lenders must fulfill specific requirements to prevail in a foreclosure action to legally take back the subject property:

  • Identification and notification of all property owners
  • Production and review of relevant clauses in mortgage and loan documents
  • Lawfully publicizing the time and place of the foreclosure sale
  • Submission of proof to the court

Foreclosure actions fail if the required steps are not properly followed. Our attorneys assure that the correct process is used. When a foreclosure action is brought against you, it is crucial for property owners to work with attorneys who are thoroughly familiar with your legal rights. Foreclosure sales that are not executed properly are not approved by the court. We may be able to help you get your home back after it has been foreclosed. Our attorneys thoroughly review the unique details of your situation. We search all legal options to prevent or reverse the foreclosure.
