Lake Charles Residential Real Estate Lawyers Provide Sound Counsel

Established Southwest Louisiana firm handles all types of property issues

It does not matter if you’re buying a first home or developing a property for a multi-unit project, residential real estate transactions are significant events that have a profound effect on your current and future well-being. Stockwell, Sievert, Viccellio, Clements & Shaddock, L.L.P. in Lake Charles has provided valuable legal guidance for clients in property matters since 1934. Whether you have a question about a title issue, have concerns about the lease you’re being asked to sign or are engaged in a dispute over a real estate sale contract, we are committed to helping you accomplish your objectives.

Thorough attorneys prepare home purchase and lease agreements

Effective representation during the negotiation of property purchase and lease agreements can help you complete transactions successfully and avoid problems down the road. We draft clear documents associated with home purchases and apartment rentals so that everyone understands the parties’ obligations and our clients’ important interests are protected. Moreover, we conduct exacting reviews of materials prepared by the other side to identify potential problems that might not be readily apparent.

Counselors advise on title, foreclosure and commercial development matters

Having served Southwest Louisiana for decades, our firm can manage any of your real estate law concerns, including challenges related to:

  • Foreclosures — Even temporary financial difficulties can lead a lender to threaten a homeowner with foreclosure. In these situations, our lawyers have a detailed understanding of the laws governing lenders during this process and represent clients who seek mortgage modifications or other solutions so they can remain in their residence.
  • Title liens — If a title lien exists on a property you own or are considering for purchase, we work diligently to assess the situation and clear any infringement that affects the value of a given real estate parcel. 
  • Industrial site acquisitions, expansions and joint ventures — Our firm handles a wide array of commercial real estate matters, including transactions involving industrial sites and authorization for structural expansions. As experienced attorneys with a long track record of success in business and property matters, we also assist with joint ventures and other business arrangements related to residential and commercial property development.

In every case, we draw on our legal and practical knowledge to complete important tasks and help you maximize the value of your property investment.

Litigators represent parties in disputes between property buyers and sellers

Even when both parties to a residential real estate transaction are in general agreement on most terms, one dispute can destroy the deal. Conflicts over financing, title concerns, property conditions or alleged misrepresentations need to be addressed promptly and effectively to keep things on track. Having practiced law in this area since 1934, our firm understands how to identify and execute creative solutions regardless of what particular disagreement exists between a home buyer and seller.
