Real Estate Law

Avery Dooley & Noone, LLP provides legal representation for clients in a variety of real estate transactions. Our real estate attorneys are often retained by developers, institutional and private lenders, and individuals who seek quality advice and legal expertise for real estate matters. Our clients benefit from our broad experience and knowledge regarding every aspect of a transaction.

We recognize that each real estate transaction is unique. We help our clients set clear objectives and identify strategies to achieve them. Our attorneys strive to proactively solve problems while mitigating risks and seeking to complete the deal within our client’s established parameters.

Residential Real Estate

Our residential real estate practice includes all aspects of home buying and selling throughout Massachusetts. Our attorneys help buyers and sellers complete their transactions while avoiding potential pitfalls. We understand that for most of our clients, purchasing a home or condominium is a major investment, and we are respectful of the resources that they are using to fulfill their dreams. Our attorneys also represent residential real estate investors who primarily purchase properties to rent or resell for profit. Although these clients have different goals than people who are buying homes for personal enjoyment, our real estate lawyers can provide both with the knowledgeable counsel and representation necessary to smoothly, efficiently, and legally complete their transactions.

Commercial Real Estate

Our commercial real estate practice provides legal services to developers and landlords as well as buyers and sellers of commercial property. We represent clients at each stage of their projects, from acquisition and assemblage of land to securing tenants and developing leases. We can assist with establishing the appropriate business entity for the transaction or project. Our attorneys help clients obtain zoning and construction permits and represent them before the Zoning Boards of Appeal. We negotiate, draft, and review the many contracts needed for commercial transactions.

Institutional Lenders

Avery Dooley & Noone, LLP represents lenders in both residential and commercial transactions. For these clients, we handle drafting and reviewing residential and construction loan documents, residential and condominium development plans and contracts, and title insurance documentation and coverage.

Zoning and Land Use

Our attorneys assist clients with all types of zoning and land use matters. Promptly obtaining zoning approval and the necessary permits is often the difference between a successful project and one that drags on and runs over budget. Residential, corporate, and institutional projects all require an experienced zoning attorney to serve as a guide through the legal process and to keep the projects on schedule and under budget. Our clients who seek counsel for land use and zoning matters range from individual homeowners to commercial property developers. We defend clients in a variety of cases, ranging from zoning violation charges to toxic contamination claims.
