The attorneys at Wu & Hung Law, LLC have experience in a variety of real estate related matters and can assist you with buying and selling real estate, landlord-tenant disputes, and property tax appeals.
Residential Real Estate
Buying a home can be one of the most stressful experiences of your life, often becoming unnecessarily complicated and adversarial. At Wu & Hung Law we endeavor to make this process as smooth as possible for our clients, from reviewing and negotiating the purchase agreement to working closely with the brokers, mortgage banks, and title agents to ensure a timely closing. And as we also represent clients selling their homes, Wu & Hung Law has a thorough understanding of the real estate sales process from both sides of the transaction.
1031 Like-Kind Exchanges
Do you have an investment or business property that you want to sell? The IRS allows you to defer the capital gains tax on the sale if you reinvest the proceeds in a similar "like-kind" investment or business property within 180 days of the sale. Wu & Hung Law’s attorneys can help assess and ensure that the sale of your business property qualifies for this favored tax treatment.
Foreclosures & Short Sales
If your mortgage is “underwater”, or you have fallen behind on your mortgage payments and the bank is threatening to foreclose, it is important to understand what your best options are. Wu & Hung Law can help you refinance your mortgage or negotiate a loan modification with your bank. A short sale can also be a great alternative to foreclosure. However, it is very important to have Wu & Hung Law negotiate on your behalf to protect your assets and release you from hidden personal and financial liabilities.
Landlords and tenants face a multitude of potential issues, ranging from landlords who refuse to make repairs to tenants who fall behind on rent. Both landlords and tenants have rights and responsibilities under the law, and Wu & Hung Law can help you understand and enforce such rights and responsibilities. Given your specific situation, our attorneys will advise you on the best way to handle all disputes you are having with your landlord or tenant.
Property Tax Appeals
If you feel that your property taxes are high compared to other properties in your neighborhood or similar properties in the same city, or if you are experiencing hardship that makes it difficult to pay property taxes, Wu & Hung Law may be able to help reduce your tax burden. Our attorneys will review your property tax assessment, and represent you before your county taxation board to help get your assessment lowered.
