Real Estate Law


Real estate law is an extremely broad and complex area of law. It includes leases and evictions, sales and purchases, land development and zoning, neighbor disputes, and environmental compliance. 

At Haden Law Office, we can assist you with the full spectrum of legal issues related to real estate. We are from the Central Valley and have witnessed the rapid development of the area, as well as the subsequent foreclosure crisis. This makes us better able to recognize our clients’ needs and to anticipate potential issues with zoning and land use.

We represent a variety of parties involved in both commercial and residential real estate development, transactions, and disputes. Our clients include homeowners and buyers, commercial tenants, land developers and builders, government entities, and title companies. We assist our clients with:

  • Purchase, Sale, and Transfer of Real Estate
  • Land Use, Development, and Zoning
  • Site Plans, Permits, and Environmental Compliance
  • Construction Contracts
  • Commercial and Residential Leases
  • Property Line Disputes and Easements
  • Title Disputes
  • Partition Actions
  • Evictions/Unlawful Detainer

With years of experience, we know that real estate issues can be complicated and require extreme attention to detail. Hiring an attorney to anticipate problems before they arise is the best way to guard against costly disputes and litigation.
