Commercial Landlord/Tenant Matters
We represent both property owners and renters in disputes regarding residential and/or commercial property.
Property Tax Sales
We can assist you with preparing for a tax sale purchase. You should not invest in a property without knowing the status of the title. Contact us in advance of the tax sale so we can help you make a good investment. We can also assist with filing a bar of redemption which will allow the tax deed holder the right of possession.
Property Tax Appeals
Both commercial and residential property tax appeals succeed or fail based on the ability to understand how valuation and uniformity can be challenged. Allow us to handle your appeal to the Board of Equalization, the Superior Court, a hearing officer or via arbitration. We can challenge your property taxes based on uniformity and valuation.
LLC Membership Sales Or Transfers
In some cases, it is beneficial to transfer ownership via stock or membership transfer. This tactic can be used to transfer all assets of a company at once.
