Overview

Reminger’s Real Estate Practice Group members offer expert representation and practical advice in all facets of real estate transactions and litigation.

Our public and private clients call upon us for assistance with the acquisition, leasing, financing, and sale of commercial, industrial and residential property. We have extensive experience in property management as well as finance, title, and escrow matters. We represent clients in zoning, land use, and tax issues. Our clients are national retailers as well as industrial, commercial, and residential developers, and consumers whom we assist in all aspects of buying and selling residential real estate, including condominiums and new construction. We also represent several real estate trade associations.

Our Real Estate Practice Group frequently defends real estate brokers and agents in connection with real estate errors and omissions litigation. We have specific expertise in representing real estate brokers and agents in nondisclosure, misrepresentation, and breach of fiduciary duty claims. We also assist with compliance issues, operations, license law investigations, disciplinary actions and audits, and in fair housing matters. We frequently appear before all Ohio courts, the Ohio Division of Real Estate and Professional Licensing, the Ohio Real Estate Commission, and the Ohio Civil Rights Commission.

Our Services and Philosophy of Case Handling

Our philosophy of practice in respect to real estate law is no different than all of our other our practice groups. In collaboration with the client, we immediately assess facts, identify the problem, then explain the risks, challenges, and possible avenues of action. We then decide on the best way to resolve the matter as quickly and efficiently as possible.

We know from experience that this philosophy distinguishes us from so many other law firms. Our clients can and do expect a different approach from Reminger.
