Black Real Estate Attorney in Chicago

Residential and Commercial Closing Lawyer Helping Black Buyers and Sellers in Beverly and on Chicago's South Side

Black real estate attorney BeverlyFor many Black Chicagoans, owning real estate property is an important goal, whether to provide a good home for your family or to make an investment in your future. However, for some, it can be difficult to know where to begin in pursuing this goal or how to navigate the often lengthy process necessary to achieve it.

At The Law Offices of Marques A. Eason, LLC, we are personally invested in helping Black buyers and sellers of both residential and commercial properties. Our attorney, Marques Eason, has 10 years of real estate law experience and a long-time familiarity with communities on the South Side of Chicago and in the South Suburbs. We want to use our knowledge to help you understand the closing process and empower your decision-making, and we will work with you at every stage to try to make your goals a reality no matter how long it may take.

Home Closing Attorney for Black Chicago Residents

Many of our clients are first-time buyers for whom home ownership may seem unattainable for reasons including low credit scores, low income, or employment gaps. Though all of these things can present obstacles and extend the closing process, we can help you explore all available options to overcome these obstacles or minimize them as much as possible. We want to start working with you as early as we can so that you have an experienced lawyer on your side as you make every important decision on your way to closing on a home.

When you find a home and decide to make an offer, we will review your purchase contract with the seller and help you negotiate agreeable terms with your personal and financial interests in mind. We will also help you work with lenders to obtain financing and answer your questions about your mortgage agreement. We can also arrange for home inspections and title searches to uncover any defects or issues with the property that would make it an unwise purchase for you. Our favorite part of the process is Closing Day, when we will be there to help you address the last few details and celebrate your successful purchase.

We also help experienced home buyers and sellers with closings, and we can be there for you even after the closing if you need litigation for a dispute between the buyer and seller. We are also passionate about defending homeowners in foreclosures, because we know that in Chicago communities that have been hit hard by COVID-19 and unemployment, it can be difficult to keep up with mortgage payments.

Legal Services for Black Commercial Property Owners

In addition to homeowners, we support Chicago's Black business property owners through legal representation for buyers and sellers in commercial closings on apartment buildings and other income properties. We know that these transactions can have a major impact on your income, so we help you protect your investment throughout the important steps including contract negotiations, review of zoning and environmental regulations, and transfer of lease responsibilities.

We also understand that when you have worked hard to purchase a commercial property, you want to be able to maintain and protect it. To that end, we help landlords draft enforceable rental agreements and pursue evictions of tenants who fail to pay rent or otherwise break the terms of the lease, seeking full compensation for your losses and damages.
