Experienced Salem Lawyer Represents Your Property Interests

Missouri law firm provides comprehensive support for real estate matters

Whether you are a seasoned real estate developer, novice commercial investor or residential buyer, an experienced real estate attorney can help you protect your investment and leverage your assets. At the Law Office of Steven M. Patterson, I represent individuals and businesses in Salem and the surrounding areas in all aspects of real estate law. My representation includes any matter involving the sale, purchase or ownership of property as well as landlord-tenant disputes. If it involves property, I can help.

Diligent counselor represents buyers and sellers in real estate transactions

With broad knowledge of real estate law, I have the ability to provide effective and affordable representation in wide-ranging transactions involving real property. I provide transactional services in the following areas:

  • Negotiation of real estate agreements — In any real estate negotiation, each party has their own needs and wants, and getting everyone to the point of agreement takes experience, knowledge and skill. I approach negotiations from a legal perspective, not an emotional one, to represent your best interests and navigate any problems that arise.
  • Drafting or review of sales contracts — Once the initial terms of a transaction are agreed upon and a formal written contract is introduced to the process, I make sure the terms are written in view of your needs and goals and that any one-sided provisions favoring the other party are eliminated.
  • Representation in residential home sales transactions — Buying a home may be the most significant investment of your life. An experienced real estate attorney can assist with many aspects of the transaction beyond just negotiating and drafting the purchase agreement. My services include performing title examinations, setting up escrow, representing you at closing and addressing any legal issues such as quiet title actions that arise during the process.
  • Preparation and litigation of real estate contracts — I provide legal support for any type of contract that may be involved in your real estate transaction, including purchase and sale agreements, leases, deeds and easements. I also provide representation in disputes over real estate contracts and between landlords and tenants.

If you would like to learn more about these services, I offer a free initial consultation at my Salem office.
