Real Estate

Real estate lawyers at Cate, Terry & Gookins (CTG) handle residential and commercial real property transactions on behalf of clients throughout Indiana and Illinois.  Our attorneys help clients with all their real estate matters, from the purchase and sale of personal residences to the construction and leasing of multimillion-dollar commercial facilities.

Whether of a business or a personal nature, real estate transactions often involve the largest commitment of money, energy and emotional attachment of any transaction.  Typical real estate transactions involve not only buyers and sellers, but also brokers, agents, inspectors, appraisers, lenders and quite often government representatives, such as assessors, and agencies, such as zoning boards. Given the multiple parties and steps involved in a single transaction, there is always potential that one misstep or misunderstanding could derail the deal.

Our attorneys help clients navigate the complicated network of laws and regulations while negotiating favorable contract terms and preparing the necessary agreements and other documents to successfully finalize real estate transactions.  Should a dispute arise regarding licenses, permits, clouded title or specific performance, we can ably handle the matter before the appropriate agency or in court.

The lawyers at CTG have a track record of success litigating real estate matters.  The firm’s proficiency in litigation extends to all types of property-related matters, including landlord-tenant disputes, property lines and boundary disputes, easements, financing and taxation issues.
