TIER Plus Real Estate Leagl Services with Happy Family

Legal Due Diligence

If you have questions or concerns about a real estate issue in Idaho, Montana, or Washington, call today to schedule a no-charge consultation with a real estate lawyer, (208) 712-4700.

Logging restrictions, zoning, building permits, conservation restrictions, chain of title, and other circumstances of a parcel can have a devastating effect on the use and value of a parcel.

Legal due diligence uncovers risks in a parcel's public-record, substantiating the true value of a parcel.

Buyer Beware

The most avoidable problem seen at the law office is a buyer who didn't understand the devastating effect a public-record document had on the use and enjoyment of their purchase.

The law assumes buyers know about all public-record documents. If a buyer doesn't know about a public-record document or doesn't understand its effect on the parcel, the law offers little recourse.
