Our Real Estate Practice

Sunnyvale Real Property Attorney

If you are involved in a residential or commercial real estate matter, you want an experienced lawyer to protect your interests. These transactions involve many complex documents. Seemingly minor errors can be costly, in terms of both time and money.

At the Law Offices of Steven D. Hoffman, we have represented individuals and businesses in real estate matters in California for more than 30 years.

We emphasize personal service and attention in our practice. We understand that every real estate matter is unique. We will take the time to gather all necessary information from you, so that we can identify all potential issues and find effective solutions. We work hard to be available and accessible when you need answers, and to return your calls and e-mails in a timely manner.

Our Real Estate Practice

We assist individuals and businesses at all stages of a real estate transaction, from the negotiation of terms to the preparation of documents and through the closing. Once the terms of the purchase and sale have been agreed upon, we review and prepare all necessary documents, including the purchase and sale agreements, deeds, mortgages, promissory notes and financing instruments, easements and restrictive covenants. We will also work with escrow and title companies in resolving title issues and will be your advocate in any litigation arising out of a real estate transaction.

Specifically, we handle:

  • Troubled real estate loans, loan modifications, short sales and actions to delay and stop foreclosures
  • Situations involving fraud or misrepresentation, including Seller's failure to disclose
  • Landlord-tenant disputes
  • Quiet Title and Partition actions
  • Specific Performance actions
  • Construction disputes, including fit and finish issues and construction defect claims
  • Residential and Commercial leases
  • Homeowner's Bill of Rights (HBOR)

We work with homeowners, commercial property owners, investors, landlords, tenants, construction companies, developers, general contractors and property management companies.
