Real Estate

Buying real estate is a big deal. Whether you’re buying a house or developing a commercial property, the process can be complicated. It involves a lot of money and there are many steps to go through, so it’s important to have a knowledgeable lawyer to help you make sure everything goes smoothly.

At Paul J. Ganim law firm, our lawyers are experts in real estate transactions. We’ve helped people with buying homes, refinancing, and selling both private and commercial properties. We’re proud to support and give legal advice to our neighbors in Fairfield, Westport, Stratford, Norwalk, and Trumbull, Connecticut. Our goal is to make the buying or selling process as simple, clear, and cost-effective as possible.


Buying property is a big expense, and you might think that avoiding lawyer fees can save you money. But in the long run, not getting legal advice can cost you more. Real estate attorneys help make sure that contracts are followed, and everyone agrees on the terms. They act as a go-between for buyers, sellers, and lenders, and they can prevent any unexpected lawsuits.

When you’re buying property or a home, you may have to:

deal with documents and contracts

inspect the property

make sure there aren’t any arguments about the property boundaries

check that the zoning rules are followed

get the right permits for building

handle lease agreements

make sure the title to the property is clear

Any of these things can cause problems and legal issues in the future if they’re not handled correctly.

A real estate lawyer will help you through the whole process and support you at every step.
