Real Estate Law

Residential Development

The Real Estate Law practice group at CMDA represents builders and developers in all aspects of residential development. We assist builders and developers in establishing condominium projects and subdivisions by preparing the master deed, bylaws, declaration, rules and regulations, as well as obtaining the necessary governmental approval for the project. We also prepare sales documents, including the disclosure statement, escrow agreement, limited warranty and purchase agreement, which a builder or developer needs to sell units. We provide representation throughout the entire sales and development period and assist the builder or developer in compliance with the Michigan Condominium Act, all the way through the date that control of the Association is transitioned to the co-owners.  Our attorneys also assist individuals and/or builders with respect to construction of individual homes and issues with building permits.
