Real Estate Contracts
Selling and purchasing real estate are big decisions. As a purchaser, you want to know your property is solid, free of defects and that the closing will go forward without complications. As a seller, you want to avoid accountability for issues you had no knowledge of or are not responsible for. An attorney well-versed in real estate contract law can help prevent any potential problems from arising.
At Bowles & Verna LLP, we have extensive experience with real estate contracts. Our attorneys become your partners in this venture, working together to bring your real estate transaction to a successful conclusion. We have seen the havoc that a poorly written real estate contract can cause. We do everything in our power to prevent this from happening to you. We consult with you on the concerns you may have about your real estate deal and advise you on potential pitfalls and how to correct them. Everything we do is geared toward a positive outcome for you.
Broker Errors And Omissions
As a real estate broker, you know that things can go wrong with any real estate deal. When errors are made or when a lack of knowledge leads to an angry customer, you may end up with a lawsuit on your hands. If this occurs, you need a broker defense lawyer with extensive experience in broker errors and omissions defense.

We have handled more than 900 cases of errors and omissions defense over many years of practice. We understand how important your reputation as a real estate broker is to you.

Real Estate Litigation
When you are caught up in real estate litigation, it is important to have an attorney with a thorough understanding of California real estate law. Litigation can be very expensive.

Efficient, Cost-Effective Representation
