Columbia Lawyer Provides Dedicated Services to Residential Real Estate Clients

Maryland law firm represents property owners and renters in transactions and litigation

Buying or selling a home or renting property can be an involved process, requiring a keen understanding of your rights and responsibilities. At The Totten Law Firm, LLC. in Columbia, I provide comprehensive counsel on all aspects of residential real estate transactions and matters affecting landlords, tenants and property owners. Whether you need assistance in buying or selling a home, dealing with a lease or rental issue or handling a condominium or homeowners’ association matter, I draw on my extensive knowledge of real estate law to help you make informed and confident decisions.

Skilled real estate lawyer assists with real estate contracts

My firm provides valuable legal guidance at every stage of a real estate transaction. I represent buyers and sellers at all stages of the deal, including drafting and reviewing sales contracts, negotiating key terms, reviewing and preparing loan documents,  performing title searches, and conducting closings. If disputes arise over interpretations of contractual terms or either side’s efforts to cancel the deal, I pursue a swift resolution using appropriate remedies and defenses. I also assist clients with issues related to easements and restrictions on property use. Whatever your needs and concerns, I will work to help you achieve a successful result.

Attorney provides strong advocacy for your interests in landlord-tenant disputes

I offer a range of legal services for parties to residential leases, representing landlords or tenants in negotiations and in rental disputes. I help landlords collect unpaid rent, respond to tenant misconduct and bring eviction proceedings when necessary. I also assist tenants in controversies over rent, handling of security deposits, property maintenance and terminations of tenancies. In any landlord-tenant matter, you can rely on me to defend your rights vigorously whether you are pursuing an enforcement action or fighting against a lease violation claim.

Effective counsel helps with HOA and condominium issues

My firm assists clients with condominium and homeowners’ association matters, from advising HOAs on the governance and everyday operations of a community to managing disputes with individual unit owners. I regularly draft and review governing documents and advise associations on collection and enforcement issues. Where there are alleged breaches of rules, covenants or state or local regulations, I represent associations and individual owners in condo and HOA violation procedures or in litigation and other means of dispute resolution. I fully address any concerns you have about protecting your property rights or upholding the integrity of a HOA community.
