Commercial real estate

Commercial Real Estate

Ms. Dixon has represented clients in the development, acquisition, sale, and financing of commercial real estate projects such as office buildings, shopping centers, apartment complexes, office/warehouse developments, and hotels. For lenders she has handled multi-million dollar loans, negotiated and drafted complex loan documents including notes, mortgage instruments, financing statements, assignments of leases and rents, guaranties, and affidavits and indemnity agreements. She has protected the lender's interests in title insurance matters, environmental matters, loan underwriting and appraisal matters, and agreements with tenants of the properties securing the loans. For borrowers, she has issued legal opinion letters, negotiated loan documents, and prepared entity resolutions authorizing transactions.

In the workout of problem loans, Ms. Dixon has handled foreclosures, loan modifications, and represented lenders in bankruptcy proceedings.

She has been retained by a title company to cure defects in title for the insured policy holder.

For developers of residential subdivisions, Ms. Dixon has created homeowner associations and drafted covenants, conditions and restrictions.

Residential real estate

Residential Real Estate

As the largest investment that most individuals make, the purchase and financing of a residence is a matter worthy of the best legal advice that a person can obtain. Yet, many enter into such transactions without legal representation in the transaction.

We encourage sellers and purchasers to have the benefit of legal counsel when negotiating and signing a purchase and sale contract for real estate. Even after signing a contract, issues may arise that cause the parties to enter into additional agreements or revise the terms of the original contract. Precise drafting of all such documents can reduce misunderstandings, ensure compliance, and make it less likely that parties will end up in litigation over the transaction.

An escrow agent or closing attorney may handle the closing of the purchase and sale transaction. However, each party is entitled to have the advice and assistance of an attorney whose sole loyalty is to protect her client's interests.

Where a seller agrees to sell to a purchaser who will pay the purchase price to the seller in installments (sometimes called "owner financing"), it is especially important to have conveyance and loan documents drafted by skilled legal counsel. Until that obligation is fully paid, the possibility exists that the borrower/buyer may default in payment and the documents will need to be enforced so the seller can recover his security.
