Chicago Ridge, Illinois Real Estate Attorney

Chicago Ridge real estate law firm

Commercial and Residential Closing Lawyer in Cook County and the South Side of Chicago

A real estate purchase is a significant investment, and when you are closing on a home or commercial property, it is important that you have a strong understanding of every step in the process so that you can protect your finances and avoid making a bad decision. This can be difficult for first-time and experienced buyers and sellers alike due to the sheer number of details, documents, and involved parties to keep track of.

An experienced real estate lawyer can keep track of these issues for you to make the closing process more manageable. At The Law Offices of Marques A. Eason, LLC, we provide legal guidance and representation for residential and commercial closings in Chicago Ridge and throughout the South Suburbs, as well as counsel and litigation for evictions, foreclosures, and other disputes.

Residential and Commercial Closings in the South Suburbs of Chicago

Having an attorney present at your residential closing can ensure that all details go according to plan, but home buyers and sellers can also benefit from our legal services well before the day of the closing itself. If you expect to make or accept an offer on a property in the near future, hiring us early on gives us the opportunity to fully explain each step of the process and offer our assistance at several key points, including review and negotiation of the purchase agreement, arranging of the home inspection and damage repairs, review of the loan agreement and the title search results, and preparation of closing documents to allow for a smooth transfer of ownership.

We are also experienced with commercial closings and the added complexities of these typically larger transactions. We can guide you through escrow, signing authority for legal entities, review of documents regarding zoning and environmental regulations, and assumption of leases, always keeping in mind your business interests and ensuring an efficient process so that you can benefit from your investment as soon as possible.

Chicago Ridge Landlord Evictions

Commercial property owners often need legal representation long after the closing to assist with their ongoing relationships with tenants. We can help landlords of both commercial and residential properties draft legally compliant, enforceable lease documents that protect their interests, as well as offer guidance and litigation through the eviction process to seek compensation from tenants who are late on payments without infringing on their legal protections.

We provide similar services to condominium and HOA associations, including drafting and review of rules and regulations, assisting with the collection of dues and assessments, and evicting unit owners who fail to pay their fees.

Foreclosure Defense in Illinois

As a homeowner, you may find yourself unable to make mortgage payments due to fluctuations in the economy and your personal financial situation. We can help you explore options to make your payments more manageable, like refinancing or temporarily modifying the terms of your loan, or defend you in litigation with your lender once they file for foreclosure. We know the thought of losing your home is overwhelming, but with our help, you may be able to prevent it.
