TIER Plus Real Estate Leagl Services with Happy Family

Custom 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, (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 problems are those associated with public-record document(s) that limit the use and enjoyment of a purchase. The law assumes buyers know and understand all public-record documents. If a buyer doesn't know about all public-record documents, the law offers little recourse.
