Hawaii Real Estate Attorneys
We have extensive experience in structuring and negotiating real estate purchase and sale transactions, including major office buildings, industrial, residential, retail and commercial properties. We represent both purchasers and sellers of Hawaii residential real estate.
We assist our selling clients with proper disclosures, as well as drafting the Hawaii Purchase Contract if a Hawaii real estate agent is not involved. By using attorneys you can save three percent of the sales price that would have gone to a real estate agent. Here is a description on our services: For Sale By Owner and Mandatory Seller Disclosure Statement for Hawaii Residential Real Property.
Are you a real estate buyer who wants to obtain a three percent credit from the seller by not using a real estate agent? We conduct due diligence on the Hawaii residential property, review condominium documents and title reports. Our attorneys also assist with drafting and negotiating the Hawaii Purchase Contract (see Why Your Surveying Paragraph in a Hawaii Purchase Contract May be Inadequate When Purchasing Hawaii Residential Real Estate) as well as working with escrow to obtain a proper title insurance policy. We will also help you understand issues that may arise such as Purchasing from a Foreclosure Lender a Hawaii Condominium that has Delinquent Hawaii Homeowner Association Common Area Fees.
Given the difficult economic conditions and lack of credit, we have been increasingly asked to prepare Hawaii Agreements of Sale. A purchaser or a seller involved in Agreements of Sale should consult an attorney to truly understand the risks and rewards of entering into such a transaction. Here is a summary of some Issues under a Hawaii Agreement of Sale.
Hawaii Attorneys Serving Commercial Property Buyers and Sellers
For commercial property, we assist purchasers and sellers by negotiating a Hawaii Purchase and Sale Agreement (see Should a Hawaii Purchase Contract (DROA) Be Used in Purchasing Hawaii Commercial Property? and Why a Purchaser of Hawaii Real Estate May Want to Delete an Arbitration Paragraph), preparing closing documents such as a Bill of Sale, Warranty Deed, Assignment of Tenant Leases, Tenant Estoppel Certificates, and Escrow Instructions.
It’s important to note that the representations and warranties within the Hawaii Purchase and Sale Agreement are the important to protecting a purchaser, but cannot replace a thorough due diligence review which may reveal issues requiring a downward sales price adjustment.
