Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Philadelphia Real Estate Attorneys

The Philadelphia real estate attorneys & lawyers on UpCounsel help represent landlords, property management companies, condominium associations, and tenants on any issue relating to real estate purchases, leasing, rent increases or decreases, habitability issues, condo conversions, code violations, owner move-in situations, and more.

They also provide client service across residential and commercial real estate disputes ranging from specific performance of a purchase agreement to land use or zoning issues and construction defect litigation. Real estate agents are generally prohibited from attempting to provide legal counsel or to serve as your legal representative in any manner. Therefore, during the course of a property deal you (as the seller or the buyer) should have your interests represented by an experienced Philadelphia real estate lawyer.

You should absolutely hire a real estate attorney before you sign any paperwork. If you have already started the process and did not understand every detail of the sales contract then you should hire an experienced real estate attorney found on UpCounsel. Especially if something in your contract doesn’t make sense or seems out of the ordinary. The smallest oversight or clause could end up costing you big time.

What Is Cumulative Voting?

Cumulative voting is a type of voting system used by a company's shareholders that allows them to distribute their votes between candidates when voting for a company's directors. It is also known as proportional voting.
