Real Estate

Real estate remains one of the most valuable and complex assets an individual, family or business can own.

Cantey Hanger recognizes the importance of staying on top of the changing landscape of real estate transactions, particularly in connection with the Dodd-Frank Act and the emergence of new approaches towards obtaining financing for real estate transactions. Our Real Estate practice group is comprised of seasoned professionals who can consistently navigate changes to real estate practices and procedures to facilitate routine or complex real estate transactions, including mixed-use developments, multi-family residential projects, commercial leases, oil and gas issues, and the multi-faceted financing issues surrounding transactions of this nature.

Our Real Estate practice group is proud to have some of the most experienced attorneys in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex in the unique fields of title insurance defense, eminent domain/condemnation actions, and environmental law. When real estate disputes occur, our trial lawyers have significant experience in representing commercial real estate developers, institutional and private lenders, title insurance companies, municipalities and utility companies, landlords, tenants, and corporate and private investors.

Our transactional and litigation attorneys remain active in providing our clients with services relating to loan workouts and restructuring, secured collateral realization, and related remedial matters, including deed in lieu of foreclosure transactions, and judicial and non-judicial foreclosures.
