Real estate law is a wide-ranging legal area that covers everything from property rights to boundary disputes to timber rights. While real estate is one of the older areas of law, there are new developments that take on a modern role – areas such as cell phone tower leases and home owners’ associations.
While Tennesseans try to be good neighbors, sometimes there are disputes on where the property lines actually are and if they are recorded correctly. We are happy to assist any or all parties on property line disputes.
Even though you own your land, there may be need for a neighbor or a municipality to retain an easement over your land. We have experience in drafting easements and in having easements removed from property.
If you are a business owner and are planning on renting commercial space, you are likely be required to enter into a form of commercial lease. From short-term to multi-year leases for any business or space size, we are happy to review, advise, and draft language to protect our clients and their businesses.
Cell Tower Leases
Mineral Rights &
If you own property in Tennessee, you may have land rich in building stone or other valuable materials that you’d like to harvest but need a specialized third-party to help. At Strachn Law we have experience in reviewing and drafting mineral leases to provide the maximum benefit to the property owner while ensuring that the beauty of Tennessee is preserved in accordance with EPA and TNEPA regulations.
Home Owners’ Associations
It is quite common for trees, as they grow, to encroach on the land of another property owner and cause a nuisance or, unfortunately, property damage. Additionally, with the uptake of selective harvesting, property owners are finding it useful to hire companies to selectively harvest the timber on their property. We are happy to discuss nuisance claims or review timber contracts for our clients.
