Real Estate

Texas real estate law covers all of the issues that may arise when you purchase or sell real property, as well as those issues surrounding leases and contract disputes. Below are some of the most common issues that may require the services of a Texas real estate attorney like Patti J. Hightower.


From drawing up the initial contract to closing, Attorney Patti J. Hightower can facilitate the sale or purchase of your new home. Sales begin when the purchasing party makes an offer on a piece of property. If the offer is accepted, the contract moves forward. If the purchase is financed, the lender will typically require a clear title, along with title insurance. However, even if the buyer doesn’t need financing, title work is essential to protect the investment.

Until the sale is complete, all funds will remain in escrow. To ensure that the process is smooth and painless, choosing the right escrow service is extremely important. Finally, after all requirements have been met, the sale will close, and the title and funds will legally change hands.

Leasing/Contract Disputes

Drawing up an ironclad lease helps prevent disputes in the future. Although you may be able to write such a contract on your own, soliciting the services of an attorney will help you protect your assets and limit your liability.

If problems do arise between a landlord and tenant, or when sales contracts are broken, real estate litigation is often necessary. If you are involved in a contract dispute, a qualified attorney like Patti J. Hightower can examine the lease and help you understand your rights. She can also represent you in court and help you resolve the issue as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Commercial Real Estate

Commercial real estate law is often more complicated than residential real estate law. If you plan to sell, purchase or lease commercial property, the services of a knowledgeable real estate attorney can save you a great deal of time and anxiety. The right attorney can help you create or analyze real estate contracts, close purchases efficiently and make the best possible decisions for your financial future.
