Real Estate

Assisting with the Purchase, Development and Use Compliance of Residential and Commercial Real Estate

We have over 100 years of experience handling real estate transfers ranging from simple residential home purchases to complex real estate development projects and Section 1031 exchanges.  Our real estate team has been integral in many of the largest real estate development projects in Harrisonburg and Rockingham County over the last several decades. We have substantial experience drafting real estate sale contracts, leases, option agreements, and construction contracts. We routinely assist clients with commercial land use issues such as subdivisions, stormwater agreements, restrictive covenants, and the creation of property owners’ associations. Our extensive experience representing local governments affords us an “inside-out” perspective on issues such as special use permits, variances, and rezonings, and we often represent private clients on those matters when there is no conflict. 

Numerous homeowners’ associations have relied upon our firm over the years to draft restrictive covenants that set forth construction and maintenance requirements within their developments.  In addition, we have been called upon to amend and update covenants to address new issues which sometimes arise years or even decades after original covenants are adopted and recorded.

Our real estate experience does not end on the courthouse steps.  We have successfully litigated a variety of lawsuits involving real estate, including partition, accounting, construction, and creditors’ suits as well as disputes concerning easements and boundary lines.  Our firm has also been trusted to conduct foreclosure sales in instances where a debtor has failed to fulfill a secured obligation.
