Oregon Real Estate Law Attorneys

For over twenty years, our real estate attorneys have handled all transactional matters surrounding residential and commercial real estate in Oregon, including Washington, Multnomah and Clackamas counties, and litigating any disputes that arise.

Real Estate Transactions

We will quickly and affordably secure the deal that you expect. Our goal for our your real estate matter is to efficiently memorialize your transaction, spot any approaching problems, deal with them before they become worse, and keep your transaction moving productively forward. Closing the deal on your terms is our mission.

Strategic Default

Our real estate attorneys will advise you on the latest legal rules and guidelines on a strategic default. Including when a strategic default is appropriate, the process of strategic default and how strategic default affects you. Because strategic defaults involve a very complex area of law, it is always a good idea to seek professional advice from a strategic default real estate attorney before deciding whether you should voluntarily default on your home loan. At the Harris Law Firm, our attorneys can provide you with essential information regarding strategic defaults.

Real Estate Litigation

If you are faced with a real estate dispute, whether it’s a transaction that broke down, or a dispute between neighbors; whether it’s a residential or commercial dispute, we will quickly evaluate the issues and make sure that your property and contract rights are protected.

We represent both landlords and tenants in commercial lease disputes. If you have a residential landlord tenant dispute, we do not represent tenants, but will represent landlords.

Residential Real Estate

More and more private individuals are conducting real estate sales without the help of a licensed broker, so in FSBO deals quality legal guidance is especially important. Our firm ensures that your documents follow all legal principles guiding the sale and the transaction is closed with your best interests in mind.

Developers and Investors

If you buy, sell, or develop real estate, Harris Velázquez Gibbens is your turnkey solution for commercial and residential real estate issues. Our team of experienced lawyers, helps developers, investors, brokers, property managers, contractors, and property owners structure and document all types of real estate transactions.

Commercial Real Estate

The organizational structure of a real estate transaction can dramatically affect taxation and personal liability. Our attorneys will help you choose the best form of organization for your particular project: corporation, limited partnership, business trust, joint venture, limited liability company, or limited liability partnership. Our goal is to minimize personal risk and tax consequences while maintaining a flexible operating environment.
