Real Property (Real Estate) Law

Real Property law encompasses a wide range of issues related to both the transactional and litigation side of the legal profession. Real estate transactions, mechanics liens, disputes with contractors, disputes with local governments, landlord/tenant issues, condo associations and evictions are just some of the many issues confronting property owners. Effectively resolving these issues can be difficult without the help of experienced legal professionals. Even large and established property developers often find it challenging to secure competent and cost-effective legal representation. The goal of the Law Office of Brian M. Krause, P.C. is to draw upon its abundant experience to assist clients with diverse property challenges.

We represent clients confronting common problems such as non-paying tenants as well as those clients facing more obscure property issues such as riparian (waterway) disputes. Resolving these problems effectively requires knowledge and experience. Our firm has the resources needed to meet the unique goals of our clients and to offer solutions appropriately tailored to the specific challenges facing our clients.

Understanding the Needs of Your Business

While many Chicago landlords and property managers know some of their basic rights under the law, they lack the experience to make the law work for them. We understand the many pressures faced by Illinois property owners. Working closely with property owners during difficult times in the real estate market has given our firm a sound perspective on the needs of real estate clients. Our firm represents property owners ranging from big management companies to residential landlords who own just one or two properties. We understand how difficult economic times can affect clients. We understand how the modern practice of law often seems inefficient and archaic to our clients. Thus, it has become the goal of our firm to make law more efficient and cost effective for our customers. Our firm's services might be a fit for you, if you face the following types of problems:

  • A Chicago tenant in one of your buildings has failed to pay rent and you want the tenant evicted from the premises as quickly as possible;
  • You want to collect on a judgment for nonpayment of rent or resolve a holdover situation;
  • You need advice on creating a trust, will or estate plan. Or, you are purchasing a property and you want to transfer the property into your trust;
  • You are involved in a contract dispute; or
  • You are involved in a dispute with a triple net lease tenant over common area maintenance charges.
