Residential Real Estate

Residential Real Estate

Our highly-skilled and knowledgeable partners leverage more than 50 years of real estate experience in counseling our clients in the purchasing, sale, financing and leasing of residential property. Our residential real estate services include:

Buying or Selling a Home

When you partner with SARAGA/LIPSHY, PL early in the home buying or selling process, you'll have direct access to all of the value-added transactional law services necessary to ensure a successful closing. And the earlier in the process you involve our firm (e.g., pre-contract signing), the more value you gain. One of the greatest benefits of using an attorney is that we have an ethical obligation to work on behalf of your best interest. Unlike a real estate agent who may have a financial interest in both the purchase and sale of a property, SARAGA/LIPSHY, PL only represents one party…you!

Title Insurance

SARAGA/LIPSHY, PL can handle your title insurance, and our fees are comparable to those charged by title companies. However, we can also perform vital services that title companies simply do not offer, including:

  • Preparing your purchase contract.
  • Resolving any title or inspection issues.
  • Providing you with expert legal advice and guidance.
  • Represent you in a disputed matter.

A title agency unaffiliated with a real estate lawyer cannot do any of those things

Landlord/Tenant Disputes

Represent landlord and tenant in evictions and beach of lease proceedings related to leases for homes, apartments and foreclosure proceedings.

Association Disputes

Represent homeowners in disputes with the homeowners or condominum owners associations.


Represent landlords and tenants in structuring, negotiating, and documenting residential leases

Foreclosure/Short Sale

Many clients are not familiar with the foreclosure or short sale process and learn at the last minute that their home or investment real estate is set to be sold at a foreclosure sale. Many property owners simply need more time to evaluate their options and create a plan. At SARAGA/LIPSHY, PL, we understand how to help property owners who are facing foreclosure or who may benefit from a short sale or deed in lieu transaction. It is our goal to educate our clients on all the available options and provide legal counsel that will help each client execute a plan that works best to meet their individual goals.
