Real Estate Concerns:
Christie Tournet & Associates has a very unique ability to help clients in certain facets of Louisiana real estate concerns. We can assist in drafting a variety of real estate transactions and we also provide counsel ranging from residential purchase and lease agreements to more sophisticated commercial leases and purchases and other commercial contracts, including prospective franchising agreements and concerns.
For example, buying or selling a home is the most significant financial transaction that many individuals undertake in their lifetime. While this can be an exciting time, without proper legal guidance, the process can also become frustrating, overwhelming, and more expensive than necessary. Even if there are no obvious disagreements between the Buyer and Seller, it is advisable for each party to enter into real estate transactions with one's own attorney, who can help steer the client away from common pitfalls and facilitate a smooth transfer of property.
