Athens, Alabama Real Estate Attorney

Experienced Attorneys for All of Your Real Estate Needs

Real estate and property laws cover an extensive legal area, regulated not only by federal and state statutes, but by common law as well. Real estate is comprised of more than structures, buildings and land. Trees, bushes and minerals attached to the land are also encompassed by the term real estate, as well as the interests, benefits and rights attached to the property. Such things as the air above the land, the ground beneath the land, and the right to live on the land for a specific period of time, all fall under the umbrella term of “real estate.”

The Martinson & Beason attorneys have represented developers and land owners in the Athens and Huntsville areas when real estate disputes have threatened their goals. We also help homeowner associations enforce restrictions, draft by-laws, and collect delinquent assessments. If you are a landowner or developer looking for knowledgeable legal counsel, you have come to the right place.

We can help you address real estate issues such as:

  • Changes in zoning laws;
  • Site plan approval and permit application disputes;
  • Erosion issues;
  • Environmental review disputes or issues;
  • Title disputes;
  • Disputes regarding management or operating agreements for shopping centers, hotels or resorts, and
  • General property disputes which arise from residential or commercial leases and contracts;
  • Foreclosures of personal homes or commercial real estate;
  • Collections, governing document amendments and litigation for condo and homeowner’s associations;
  • Contractor and subcontractor disputes;
  • Any construction disputes involving developers, owners, contractors or subcontractors;
  • Land use real estate issues including code enforcement, hearings, litigation or zoning applications;
  • Right-of-way and property boundary disputes;
  • Utility easement disputes;
  • Eviction and forcible detainer actions regarding commercial leases;
  • Collections and eviction for landlord-tenant disputes;
  • Eminent domain disputes;
  • Historical preservation disputes;
  • Special use permits;
  • All breach of contract real estate issues.

Real estate law can be a complex practice area, further complicated by inconsistencies in the laws which govern real estate from one city and state to the next. The Athens real estate attorneys at Martinson & Beason have broad experience in real estate law, assisting clients from the relatively simple drafting of deeds or filing of liens, to the more complicated boundary and zoning disputes. We represent owners, landlords, tenants, developers, governmental entities, borrowers, secured lenders, loan participants and others with real estate disputes.
