Real Estate

Real estate law encompasses a wide variety of legal aspects relating to the use and ownership of land and buildings. The field of real estate law can be complicated because this area of the law requires specialized knowledge of both federal and state law.

The attorneys at Olsen Legal Group Ltd., in Merrillville, Indiana, have the necessary experience to guide you through most real estate transactions, including purchases, leases, and sales. We have represented both buyers and sellers in all aspects of residential and commercial real estate transactions.


Since real estate purchases often represent one of the largest investments a family will make, it is important that you have an experienced attorney to help protect your investment. Whether you are the buyer or seller, it is crucial to know your rights and responsibilities, especially during the closing process. Our team of attorneys has experience handling a variety of closings, including purchases, short sales, and refinances.


Another critical aspect in real estate law is transfer of title. While the concept of transferring a title from one owner to the next seems simple enough, there are many complications that can arise if a title is not transferred properly. Problems with mortgages or prior deeds can jeopardize your legal ownership of a property and can delay your closing. That is why it is essential to have an experienced attorney inspect the chain of title of your potential purchase. At Olsen Legal Group Ltd., our attorneys have handled title work for many clients, helping to ensure their closings proceed as smoothly as possible.
