Real Estate Attorney West Jordan Utah
Real estate is normally a significant and substantial financial investment whether you are a business, an investor, or someone buying your first home. At Ascent Law, LLC, our real estate attorneys have handled thousands of cases over decades and we are ready to give you the legal help you need in real estate law.
Solving Real Estate Legal Issues
In every type of a property investment or real estate deal, our real estate lawyers are ready and able to offer to represent your interests.
We solve title problems. We recently had a case where a second mortgage had been in default for years. The statute of limitations had expired on collecting on that mortgage. We were able to contact the lender and negotiate a settlement to remove that lien for our client. With a strategic partnership we have with a mortgage broker, we were able to not only solve the title issue for our client, but they were able to get a better interest rate and reduce their monthly payment.
We understand title issues and title insurance. We have worked with title insurers, underwriters, as well as others to assure real estate titles are free from all encumbrances so you can refiance, sell or modify your loan.
We also do mortgage foreclosures for lenders, investors, banks and others.
We have also defended foreclosures and filed lawsuits to stop foreclosures and obtained injunctions in court to prevent the sale of property when there has been fraud or other truth in lending disclosure violations.
Whether you need a lawyer for a bank issue, home loan company, servicing company or mortgages and home loan foreclosure issues, we are here to help.
Real Estate Lawsuits
We concentrate our practice on real property litigation and we are also experienced in managing complex civil litigation involving contracts, quiet title actions, easement disagreements, joint owner real estate disputes, disclosure lawsuits, boundary line disputes, as well as other real estate legal disputes. So, whether you are seeking to recoup your down payment or you want to specifically enforce the performance of a real estate contract (or REPC), we have the experience to not only protect your rights and financial investments, but also fight for you in court.
Landlord, Tenant, and Eviction Cases
When a landlord and tenant fight, we can help you with your residential or commercial property eviction case. Both landlords and tenants have certain rights and responsibilities under both CC&Rs as wells as both city and state laws. When you are dealing with a real estate dispute, it is important that you protect your rights with a real estate attorney experienced with lease contracts and Utah landlord-tenant law. Our attorneys have done countless evictions over the years in Salt Lake County, Utah County, Davis County and Weber County. We can now help you in an eviction case as well as draft or modify your lease agreements to make sure you are in compliance with local and state laws and also to protect your rights in the event of a breach of contract.
Breach of Contract in Utah
A lot of real estate contract disputes arise when one of the parties to a contract breaches the terms of the agreement. We have seen this more and more over the years. We are experienced in aggressively pursuing the rights of our clients who are seeking to enforce a contract or protect against a breaching party. Our Utah real estate legal experience includes nont only breach of contract lawsuits, but also acquisition contracts, lease agreements, commercial real estate purchase and sale agreements, disclosures, REPC lawsuits, and construction agreements. We have represented both buyers and sellers of real estate in litigation and trial.
Real Estate Development Law and Zoning Cases
We have represented developers of commercial real estate shopping centers, PUD sites, office condominium projects, and single family neighborhoods. We have drafted CC&Rs, Condominium Association Declarations; mixed-use developments and more.
When zoning changes and alterations to a Utah city plan are required to develop land that you have purchased or have under contract, we will represent you as the developer before the city planning commission and in all county and city government bodies to assist you in getting your development plan approved.
We have drafted and recorded construction liens for our clients as well as litigated to have them removed. If you are a licensed contractor and you need to file a construction lien, please contact us so that we can move quickly to preserve your lien. If you do not follow the code when recording your lien, you may forfeit your lien or have a wrongful lien recorded which can subject you to the possibility of having to pay the other sides’ attorney’s fees and costs. Having a real estate attorney on your side is vital in this situation.
Real Estate Purchase and Sale Agreements and Leases
We tailor our drafting of real estate contracts and leases, both residential and commercial, according to your requirements and objectives. We have standard contracts that we have used in the past, but because each deal and each property is unique, we draft them to protect you and preserve your rights. Whether you want to do a wrap around mortgage, an installment land contract, purchase a property subject to the existing mortgage, or do a sale lease back agreement, we can help you formalize your agreement in writing.
Homeowner’s Associations and Condo Associations
We provide legal guidance for HOA’s and Condominium Associations. Our real estate attorneys use both legal strategies and prior case law to help you make the right decisions for your association. In the event that you end up being involved in a conflict, we will fight for you.

We provide full service legal services or agents, brokers and also title companies. We can provide legal title opinion letters, plan out options, review trusts, lending documents, or other transactional documents as well as help make sure that your real estate transactions close. We have also served as independent counsel to review cases to provide ideas on discovery and prosecution of cases as needed.
