Real Estate Law
Real estate law touches the life of almost every Maine family. The purchase
or sale of a home or business is for many of us one of the single most important events which brings us to an attorney’s office. We need and trust our attorneys to provide the right guidance and assistance in this important area of our lives.
Our real estate department. Our real estate department consists of attorney Michael J. Levey (member of the Maine State Bar Association Title Standards Committee), paralegal Diane Poulin (with more than 25 years as an abstractor and closer) and paralegal Michael Susan Brown (with us since 2001).
- Negotiating and writing purchase and sale agreements for buyers and sellers of homes, apartments, and businesses

- Searching titles to inform buyers and lenders whether there is “clear, marketable and/or insurable” title to real estate that is being purchased or financed
- Preparing deeds
- Assisting in the transfer of family real estate which may occur as part of estate planning
