Real Estate

At the Law Offices of Benjamin N. Sternberg, A.P.C., our Los Angeles real estate attorney’s experience surpasses the level of seasoned professional, giving our office an advantage inside and outside of the courtroom. Our attorney, Ben Sternberg, spent seven years serving as one of the youngest bench officers in the history of Los Angeles County, where his time as Judge Pro Tem, or court-appointed temporary judge, was spent hearing litigants argue landlord/tenant issues, wherein Ben would make rulings applying the law to the facts presented.  Many of the cases before Ben included contract issues as well, which permitted Ben to also utilize his vast knowledge of this area of law as well.

Contracts, deeds, and business requirements that are covered under our real estate laws are easily understood with the help of an accomplished attorney who has served on both sides of the courtroom in residential and commercial real estate matters. Ben’s exceptional experience in real estate law allows our firm to provide representation throughout Los Angeles, including South Bay, San Fernando Valley, Downtown, and West LA residents, business owners, and property owners who have found themselves engulfed in this complex area of rules and regulations. Do not let the complicated nature of real estate law intimidate you; our firm will provide solutions for your case no matter how simple or involved the details may be.

What Is Real Estate Law and How Does It Affect California Residents?

Real estate laws in California affect more than just business and property owners. Those who sign residential and commercial leases are just as likely to become embroiled in real estate law concerns as those who have a portfolio of real property assets.

The economy, interest rates, and even monthly fees associated with leases and rental properties all affect how our residents live and pay for real estate throughout California. Each person who engages in a real estate transaction, whether it is signing a lease for an apartment, office, or new business venture, should seek their own private counsel to review the paperwork they have been given to sign. Seeking a third party’s legal experience is not only an intelligent approach to safeguarding your future but one that just may provide the insight you need to adjust the contents of the paperwork to deliver more control over the transaction.

Our Los Angeles real estate attorney represents individuals and companies alike to ensure their rights and best interests are at the forefront of every transaction, including those in the areas of:

  • Assignments and subleases
  • Commercial lease agreements
  • Contract disputes, including those involving construction
  • Easements and boundary disputes, including property lines and trespassing
  • Escrow and title requirements
  • Failure to close cases
  • Failure to disclose defects claims
  • Homeowner’s association legal issues
  • Landlord and tenant disputes
  • Loan documentation and modification
  • Mortgages
  • Municipal land entitlements
  • Option agreements
  • Property management
  • Purchase and sale agreements
  • Residential leases
  • Risk management
  • Subdivision
  • Zoning and land use

  • Acquisitions
  • Financing
  • Development
  • Management
  • Construction
  • Leases
