Both Residential and Commercial real estate issues can be complicated and often overwhelming. They also often involve one of the biggest investments you will make in your lifetime. With the assistance of a skilled real estate lawyer on your side, you can have a fuller understanding of your rights and options when attempting to address and move forward with your real estate matters. In most instances, the cost for Tull & Laubach to represent you in a real estate matter is far less than the commission on the sale or even the title insurance to insure the sale.

Land Divisions

Our firm assists clients with the legal division of their property. Among the methods of land divisions available in Michigan are: Subdivisions, Site Condominiums and Land Divisions (larger parcels). Each type of land division presents its own challenges and statutory and regulatory challenges and requires an experienced attorney’s assistance to assure compliance with these laws and regulations. We can advise clients on the proper procedures for land division. We can also assist in drafting necessary easements for ingress and egress, driveway easements, utility easements, and the like.

For Sale By Owner (FSBO)

Many Sellers of residential real property seek to save on the cost of a real estate broker when selling their homes and do so “by owner” (For Sale by Owner – FSBO). FSBO Sellers need an experienced attorney to assist them through the process from purchase agreement through closing. Similarly, Buyers who are purchasing from a FSBO Seller, require an attorney to protect their interests and to make sure that they receive clear title with one of the largest investments of their lives. Attorney Douglas A. Tull and Andre R. Laubach have more than 40 years of experience assisting both Sellers and Buyers in FSBO transactions. To ensure that you are fully protected when dealing with a home that you are selling by yourself, or buying a home directly from an owner, it is important to have the experience of a residential real estate lawyer on your side. Attorneys Douglas A. Tull or Andre R. Laubach can advise you as to your rights and obligations in a FSBO transaction, whether you are the Buyer or Seller. They will guide you through the process as smoothly as possible.
