into a lease agreement, to ensure that each party's rights and duties are
clearly stated in the lease and to avoid future disputes. Common lease disputes

Real estate development agreements are contracts to
develop land for personal or commercial use. Development agreements can be
complex, involving many regulations and parties, such as individuals,
developers, businesses and cities. Some issues that may arise include planning,
zoning, environmental laws, contracting and financing. Our attorneys can help

restrictions (CC&Rs) place limits on how property can be used and
maintained, such as exterior paint colors, parking, landscaping, pets, and
resale terms. CC&Rs are often used by homeowners associations (HOAs) in

Our real estate attorneys assist developers in the

disputes, including enforcement of CC&Rs; penalties or foreclosures for
violations of HOA rules; issues of home maintenance, design, construction, or
conditions; and the resale of homes.

by the mortgage instrument, and generally a trustee's sale occurs.
In a trustee's sale, the property usually goes to the
