Palo Alto and Redwood City Real Estate Attorney
Winghart Law Group, Inc. Has the Experience to Make a Difference
Whether you are preparing to buy real estate, sell property, or negotiate a lease, you need a professional with substantial experience in every area of real estate law. The world of real estate is complex and regulated by local, state, and federal laws. Without the assistance of a real estate attorney, individuals and companies can end up with numerous legal issues.
Our team has years of experience in both residential and commercial real estate. For commercial real estate, we work with clients to negotiate leases, secure, perfect, and enforce liens, and litigate disputes for both landlords and tenants.

Residential Real Estate Solutions
If you are planning to buy, sell, or rent residential property, the team at WLG, Inc. can assist throughout the entire process. Real estate legal documents are complex in nature and are often difficult to interpret. Individuals need to know what they are agreeing to when they sign on the dotted line. As residential real estate lawyers, we provide complete analysis of contracts to ensure that they represent your best interest.
When a real estate transaction goes awry and you say “why me?”, we are there to negotiate a positive outcome. Perhaps you are facing an unfair foreclosure, getting evicted, or dealing with misrepresentations during the buying process. Whether at the negotiating table or in court, we will do everything we can to find an ideal solution.
Our team also represents landlords in residential real estate. When landlords are facing non-payment issues or contract disputes with tenants, we exercise our knowledge of local laws to protect landlords’ rights and their property. We can step in and defend our clients if they have been unfairly accused of violating tenants’ rights or engaging in discrimination.
In our residential real estate practice, we handle:
- Unreleased mortgages
- Closing delay
- Title insurance
We Help With Real Estate Disputes in California
Our business law firm can also help with real estate disputes. We can help with issues that include:
- Lease disagreements. Are you having a disagreement over the terms of a commercial or residential lease? We may be able to help you resolve the matter through litigation or alternative dispute resolution.
- Breach of contract. In addition to disagreements with a lease, we can also assist if you are dealing with a breach of contract. Contact us to learn more about how we can help if the other party violated the terms of a lease.
- Failure to disclose. If the other party failed to disclose property defects or other safety issues, and you suffered damages as a result, then you may be able to recover compensation through litigation.
Navigating Complexities in Commercial Real Estate
There is a lot at stake in commercial real estate transactions. The success or failure of a business often depends on finding the right location and securing a fair deal for that location. Over the years, our team has represented investors, large companies, commercial landlords and small businesses.
In the world of real estate, many issues and disputes come down to contracts. Well-drafted and carefully reviewed contracts protect our clients from a myriad of issues. Our team will assist in drafting and reviewing purchase agreements, sales agreements, loan documents, financing agreements, and leasing agreements.
Commercial real estate depends on full adherence to local and state laws. Zoning restrictions often vary considerably between municipalities. If you move too quickly on a sale without considering these local restrictions, your company could suffer serious financial losses. Part of our job as your Redwood City real estate attorney is to be thorough and well informed of these ordinances. This help to ensure that your transaction progresses smoothly and successfully.
Some of the issues we have worked on for clients include:
- Development of new properties
- Escrow services
- Municipal laws and zoning requirements
- Condominium conversions
- Negotiation of contracts
