Real Estate Law


Real estate law is complex. It requires a thorough understanding of both the pertinent law and the real estate business. Real estate law also demands expertise in both litigation and transactional work, as lawyers who are best at litigating real estate agreements are usually best at writing them.

The Law Office of Timothy J. Hannan represents clients in a wide range of real estate matters. Our thirty-five years of experience in real estate law enable us to craft innovative, cost-effective solutions to our clients’ needs — whether we are negotiating complex transactions, drafting a purchase and sale agreement, forming a real estate partnership, or resolving property-related disputes through trial work or alternative dispute resolution.

In our real estate practice, we advise property owners and managers about their rights and their duties. We represent buyers and sellers of real property, commercial and residential developers, land owners, commercial landlords and tenants, contractors, insurers, real estate agents and brokers. Our practice is divided into two sub-specialties: litigation and transactions.

We have handled many types of real estate litigation. This includes unlawful detainer actions, breach of lease and guaranty actions, easement and boundary disputes, brokerage commission disagreements, mechanic’s liens, stop notices and claims against payment bonds, purchase and sale agreement disputes, and land use disputes.

Our transactional expertise is equally varied, and includes negotiation of commercial, retail and industrial leases; purchase and sale agreements; construction documents; development agreements; and formation of corporations, partnerships and limited liability companies.

Whatever your real estate law need, we can deliver effective, timely results. Contact us at 707.578.0903 or email us.
