Real Estate

Real Estate

For individuals and families, buying or selling real estate may be among the most important financial transactions they ever participate in. Successful real estate transactions also contribute to the financial health of businesses and lenders.

Whether the purchase of a home, the sale of a family farm, or the lease of commercial property, a real estate transaction may have great personal and financial significance. To maximize the benefit of the transaction, attention to detail and knowledge of relevant Ohio real estate law is critical.

At Schroeder, Blankemeyer, and Clinton, LLC, we understand how important your real estate matter is to you. We take pride in helping you at every step of your transaction, listening to your needs, explaining your legal options, and advancing your interests.

Northwest Ohio Residential and Commercial Real Estate Services

As one of the oldest law firms in Ottawa, Ohio, Schroeder, Blankemeyer, and Clinton has been serving the real estate legal needs of Putnam County and the surrounding region for decades. While we are available to assist with a single transaction, we often have long-term working relationships with our clients, which enables us to have an in-depth understanding of their needs and larger goals.

We know that there is no such thing as a “typical real estate transaction.” In every situation, there are terms to be negotiated that will affect how favorable the transaction is to each party. The services of an experienced Ohio real estate attorney make a real difference to the benefits and obligations a transaction offers and prevent costly mistakes.

Our services include assistance with:

  • Negotiating, drafting, and reviewing offers to purchase for residential or commercial property
  • Real estate closings
  • Commercial leases
  • Title services
  • Quiet title actions
  • Deed preparation
  • Boundary disputes
  • Mortgages and financing
  • Estate sales of real estate
  • Issues unique to agricultural real estate transactions

Careful drafting of real estate documents offers clarity, and avoids confusion over each party’s rights and responsibilities. This prevents needless litigation down the road.

Our attorneys offer the unique combination of practice experience gained in larger firms and cities, and the dedicated personal service you would expect from a family firm in a smaller community. We are capable of assisting with a sophisticated commercial real estate transaction from start to finish, and we take the same amount of pride in guiding a family through the purchase of their first home. No matter what is involved in a real estate transaction, or how many transactions we participate in, we never lose sight of what each transaction means to our clients.

We welcome the opportunity to assist you with your real estate needs in Putnam County or the surrounding area of northwest Ohio. We invite you to explore our website, meet our attorneys, learn about our practice areas, and contact us to schedule a consultation. We look forward to working with you.
