Residential Real Estate
The Cambridge law firm of Gregg, Hunt, Ahern & Embry has a robust residential real estate practice that includes all aspects of home buying and selling throughout Massachusetts. While residential real estate transactions can seem deceptively simple, our attorneys ensure that buyers and sellers complete their home-buying or selling transactions without falling into any of the traps that await the unwary.How We Help
We understand that, for most of our clients, purchasing a first or second home or condominium is 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 usually have different goals from clients who are acquiring a place to live or vacation. Although these clients are dissimilar in some ways, our real estate lawyers provide both with knowledgeable counsel and representation necessary to concluding their transactions smoothly, efficiently and within the parameters of the law.
We help our clients by making them aware of the issues in particular properties, whether vacation homes, primary residences or investment property. We ensure that each client is fully informed about any possible risks and all details relative to the transaction they are about to undertake. We counsel our selling clients so that they understand related issues such as clear titles and marketability. We draft and review contracts and other necessary documents and attend closings with their ultimate interests in mind. If disputes arise, we help resolve them through litigation.Assisting Faculty With Real Estate Purchase and Sales
Over the years, our law firm has developed special relationships with local educational institutions such as Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. We assist new faculty, staff and employees with purchasing homes in the Greater Boston area and help departing personnel with the process of selling their properties. We help locate lenders and oversee the transactions so that the purchase or sale goes forward as quickly and smoothly as possible. Our goal is to pave the way for a smooth transition, whether the client is moving to Massachusetts or leaving the area.
