Our Real Estate Law Services

Real Estate Closings & Contracts

Buying or selling any type of property is a major financial decision. It is important to make sure contingencies and key contract terms are addressed. For many people, this process is intimidating. We have decades of experience helping property buyers and sellers throughout the Shenandoah Valley complete their real estate transactions with confidence.

When you come to Hoover Penrod, we will take several steps to protect your interests – including examining title records for liens, judgments, conveyances, unpaid real estate loans, and other potential clouds on the title. We will scrutinize charges to ensure they are consistent with estimates, provide updates of facts that affect the property interest, and counsel you if any difficulties arise during a closing.

Real Estate Loans & Refinancing

The real estate attorneys at Hoover Penrod routinely help residential and commercial property owners explore their financing options. We also assist with refinance loans, loan modifications, and other lending issues.

We regularly help buyers with real estate contracts and closing negotiations, as well as the drafting and review of lease agreements and sales agreements for properties such as office buildings, primary residences, vacation homes, and retail space.

We are also experienced in handling tax-free exchanges and working with construction loans.

Sometimes problems arise during the process of applying for a loan. We have extensive experience resolving matters involving:

  • Adjustable-rate loans
  • Fraud
  • Short sales
  • Foreclosure
