Real Estate Attorneys in Rapid City

Advancing the Best Interests of Buyers & Sellers

When the burst of the housing bubble played a role in the Great Recession of 2008, many decided real estate was too risky of an investment. But constant flux in the market is completely normal, and any skilled attorney understands how to protect their clients during both the highs and the lows. If you are considering investing in real estate, selling a property, or disputing a related issue, our real estate lawyers at Monument Law are here to support you every step of the way.

Our job is to understand the ins and outs of real estate so you can focus on what matters most. Your goal may be to build a portfolio of smart investments, or perhaps you want to get rid of your property as soon as possible. You may be about to enter a large financial transaction, or someone may have breached your property rights and you are ready to take them to court. No matter the case, we will listen to your short- and long-term goals and develop a strategy to help you navigate the complexities of real estate law.

Supporting Your Real Estate Transactions

Real estate law primarily involves the purchase and sale of real property (i.e. land and structures). Our real estate attorneys ensure these transactions adhere to state law and advance our clients’ best interests. We can help draft and review all paperwork, including purchase and sale agreements, mortgage documents, titles/deeds, insurance policies, and transfer documents.

At Monument Law, we have an in-depth understanding of the nuances of real estate law. We can assist with all elements of your real estate transaction, no matter the size nor complexity. At every point, your best interests are our main focus.

If you are purchasing real estate, we can:

  • Perform a title search to protect you from purchasing a property with a judgment or lien
  • Ensure your intended use of the property adheres to zoning laws
  • Navigate the transaction in accordance with charter agreements/corporate relationships
  • Oversee the proper transfer of the title from the seller

If you are selling real estate, we can:

  • Review the home inspection to ensure the buyer has all relevant information
  • Help protect you from future lawsuits by ensuring your transaction is free from legal issues
  • Guide you through the additional hurdles of a short sale or estate sale

Whether you are the buyer or seller in a real estate transaction, we can ensure the process is legally binding and fair. Ultimately, this transaction should further your estate planning goals, and we have the skills and resources needed to support this long-term process.

Real Estate Litigation

Unfortunately, issues may arise even after a perfectly executed sale. We are fully prepared to help you obtain a fair settlement or, if necessary, litigate your case in a court of law.

Here are some of the most common real estate disputes:

  • Breach of contract
  • Title issues
  • Failure to disclose
  • Fraud/misrepresentation
  • Property boundaries (e.g. encroachment)
  • Negligence
