Dothan-Based Real Estate Attorneys

Our law firm routinely handles all types of commercial and residential real estate closings for property located throughout Alabama and Florida. A lawyer with our firm will provide legal assistance during the real estate transaction involving the purchasing, selling or refinancing of real property. As agents of First American Title Insurance Company, our attorneys are authorized to issue title insurance policies for any properties located in Alabama or Florida. During the closing process, our attorneys perform a diligent search of the property to discover any title issues that may need to be resolved. Based on the title search, our attorneys and staff have previously worked to clear and resolve many different types of title discrepancies in order to close the transaction. Examples of some of the many title issues that our staff and attorneys have previously worked to resolve include:

  • Breaks in the chain of title
  • Judgments
  • Unsatisfied mortgages
  • Liens
  • Boundary line disputes
  • Foreclosures
  • Tax sales

Our attorneys and staff at Prim & Mendheim, LLC work with numerous lenders to manage all of the important aspects of real estate closings including rendering:

  • Title opinions
  • Title insurance commitments
  • Owner and lender’s title insurance policies
  • Deeds
  • Preparation of the HUD-1 settlement statement

We also assist with the review and drafting of purchase sale agreements at the beginning of any real estate transaction. In addition to real estate transactions, our Dothan lawyers also routinely represent clients during active real estate disputes that require litigation through court proceedings. Our real estate clients include banks, mortgage brokers, mortgage companies, realtors, property management companies, contractors, developers, leasing companies, and local home buyers and sellers.

We have experienced lawyers who handle the real estate closing process from start to finish. From receiving the order from the lender, to signing the closing documents at our office, we handle each and every step with attention to detail. We work with various lenders, real estate agents, and mortgage companies throughout the closing process to ensure that the property is closed without any problems. For more information regarding real estate closings, please contact us.
We handle all aspects of the foreclosure process, from the initial preparation of the necessary demand letter to the final surrender of the property back to our clients or the successful bidder.  There are many issues to deal with in a mortgage foreclosure, but we will aggressively pursue all available legal avenues necessary to secure the property for our clients.  We typically handle foreclosures for a flat fee plus expenses.
Each State has laws in place to protect both the tenant and the landlord. It is illegal to force a tenant from a dwelling by changing the locks or tuning off the power.  We provide a seamless service to landlords while safeguarding their rights and gaining possession of the property back legally. The courts are very specific in the manner in which evictions must be filed and there are critical timelines that must be adhered to.  At Prim & Mendheim we take the burden of the eviction out of the hands of the home owner or property manager and follow the eviction process from start to finish.  In addition, we also make sure that any judgment necessary to collect past due rent or damages to the property is obtained correctly in order to pursue its collection.  Our firm is very experienced at handling evictions and provides this service for a small flat fee.
During the closing process, we identify any liens against the property and work toward resolving them immediately.  We also file necessary liens to secure payment in many circumstances.
The real estate lawyers at Prim & Mendheim, LLC are dedicated to their clients’ rights to develop and enforce leases.  A properly executed lease will fully protect the client in the event of any problems or disputes.  From preparing, drafting, and negotiating leases, we will protect your interests along the way.  If you are entering into a leasing agreement, please contact our experienced lawyers at Prim & Mendheim, LLC.
As an agent of First American Title Insurance, we handle various aspects of title work. Through our real estate software, SoftPro, we are able to issue title opinions, title commitments, and final title policies.
Our Dothan lawyers are experienced in the buying and selling of tax sales properties throughout Alabama and have extensive experience with the many pitfalls associated with tax sale properties in general.
