Local Experience and Attention in Real Estate Law

Most real estate matters in California do not require a lawyer. Real estate brokers and title companies can handle basic sales transactions. However, it is also true that a house is the biggest investment most people have and that investment property, commercial space or the home that provides a roof over your head can sometimes turn into a legal headache.

An effective real estate attorney has knowledge of local property laws and proven experience in negotiations and trial. For over a decade, Attorney Peter H. Liederman has helped clients in Berkeley, San Francisco, Oakland and throughout the Bay Area of California protect their property interests in real estate law. Contact the Law Office of Peter H. Liederman online or at 510-250-3757 to discuss your real estate issue.

  • Estate and trust planning.

Loan Modification

The Law Office of Peter H. Liederman cannot presently offer significant help with loan modification unless there is a genuine dispute as to whether the loan was issued with proper disclosures. The California Legislature recently made it very difficult for private attorneys to practice in this area. If you are interested in loan modification, referrals for counseling services may be found at: http://www.mortgageloan.com/mortgage-loan-modification/non-profit.
