    Skilled Residential and Commercial Real Estate and Land Use Lawyers Represent Clients in Moorestown and Throughout NJ

    Real estate transactions can be a stressful process involving both obvious risks and hidden liabilities. If you are considering, or are in the midst of, a real estate transaction, you should consult an attorney as soon as possible to help manage those risks and ensure your best possible outcome.

    At Attorneys Hartman, Chartered, we provide a wide range of services to help clients navigate these risks and liabilities in a variety of contexts. If, for example, you are contemplating buying your first home, you should consider not only what inspections will be required but the time frame in which those inspections must be completed, and what your options are if the inspections reveal a defect. Perhaps you are considering buying or leasing commercial property to start or expand your business, in which case you should carefully review the permitted uses and restrictions applicable to the property to avoid buying a property that you cannot use for your intended purpose.

    We recognize that each party to a real estate transaction has a strong interest in ensuring that the deal is consummated. We make sure that our clients do not end up regretting their decision. We, as a full-service law firm, are prepared to work with you, the brokers, the lender, the title company, and any other person or entity necessary to address your concerns. Call or contact our experienced residential and commercial real estate lawyers to schedule a consultation today.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Residential and Commercial Real Estate and Land Use in Gloucester County, NJ

    FAQ: Why would I need a real estate or land use lawyer when I’ve already hired a real estate broker in my transaction?

    Real estate brokers and real estate lawyers perform very different roles throughout the transaction. Brokers are not usually lawyers, so cannot provide any legal advice with respect to issues that may arise throughout the process. Our residential and commercial real estate and land use lawyers are here to represent your interests in every aspect of the transaction, including in situations where disputes arise and legal action may become necessary. We will also review your contract and explain any legal issues that you may need to be aware of, and we can draft riders to address any necessary issues.

    FAQ: What is a Section 1031 exchange of real estate?

    A Section 1031 exchange is named after the Internal Revenue Code section in which it falls, and essentially provides a method for deferring taxes when you are disposing of one piece of real estate and then purchasing another. To successfully defer tax liability upon the exchange, an experienced residential and commercial real estate and land use lawyer will likely be necessary because these transactions are often complicated by a number of factors. In some cases, you may wish to sell one piece of real estate and are uncertain as to the exact piece of replacement property that you will acquire. The law allows us to create an arrangement to provide for a deferred exchange of real estate while maintaining the tax benefits of the transaction.

    FAQ: The property is being sold “AS IS”; does that mean I have to accept defects shown in the inspection reports?

    No; All “as is” means in most contexts is that the seller is not obligated to make requested repairs. A properly framed contract will provide the buyer with the right to make appropriate demands for repairs during the home inspection contingency period and with the right to cancel the contract without penalty if the seller refuses to make those repairs.


    I was served with disciplinary charges at work which then developed into criminal charges. Katie explained each issue to me, and was able to resolve both the criminal case and my discipline! She was always available to me if I had questions and I am very happy with the outcome!


    After working with another attorney, who messed up my case, I hired Katherine Hartman to represent me. I found her to be sincere, trustworthy, knowledgeable and patient in explaining everything to me. In short, Katherine kept me out of jail and I would hire again! (Even though I hope I never have to see her again!)


    I highly recommend the Hartman Law Firm. Katie Hartman is a true professional, and an absolute advocate for her clients. She takes pride in making herself available for her clients in regards to questions or concerns relating to your case. She will leave no stone unturned!


    I wish I could select a higher star rating. Our Company was assisted by Michael Mormando of Attorneys Hartman in a municipal case and we simply could not be happier with the way our case was handled. Michael was extremely knowledgeable and professional. He is a true master of his craft and we would highly recommend his services


    Katherine was such a pleasure to work with! She was very caring, responsive, and professional throughout my whole experience. I will continue to recommend her and her firm to all of my friends and family
