Colorado Real Estate Contract Lawyers
Drafting Contracts & Protecting Best Interests
Colorado law allows real estate brokers to practice law only to the extent that they can draft contracts to buy and sell real estate on a Colorado Real Estate Commission (CREC) approved form. Real estate brokers are not allowed to deviate from the form or create significant addendums or additional clauses without the assistance of an attorney. This does not mean that attorneys are in any way prohibited from drafting contracts or buying and selling real estate.
In recent years, more and more sellers and buyers of homes have been able to work out a deal without the assistance of and without the commissions paid to real estate brokers. Online listing services such as Zillow have empowered sellers to become For Sale By Owner (FSBO) professionals, as long as they also incorporate the legal guidance of a real estate contract lawyer. If you need real estate contract assistance, choose our team of Colorado real estate contract attorneys from Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. today. We have the tools and skills you need to successfully complete real estate transactions and the genuinely friendly dispositions to make the process stress- and complication-free.

Our real estate contract lawyers are here to help by:
Reviewing sale and purchase offers
Have you already been given an offer by a seller or a buyer? Before you sign anything, let our attorneys see it to check for any inconsistencies, legal errors, or clauses that are one-sided and out of your favor.
When you want to take control of the real estate transaction process, you need to create the necessary contracts from scratch. Since real estate brokers cannot legally make their own contracts, this process should be left solely to our legal professionals.
Making changes and addendums
Completely rewriting a contract might not be necessary to get the outcome you want at the end of a real estate transaction. Simply making small changes or adding new clauses could do the trick.
Assisting at closing
The closing process in any real estate transaction is where the details really count, and things can get complicated if you are not careful. Rely on us to be your representative and guide during closing to avoid any bumps in the process that could derail the whole thing.
Use the Help of Our Licensed Real Estate Broker
To give you the best possible service and to ensure your real estate transaction goes well, we use Colorado Real Estate Commission approved forms to streamline all processes and when creating new real estate contracts. We also have a shareholder on our team who has been a licensed real estate broker since 1985 and who teaches classes on contract formation and other real estate issues to attorneys as well as real estate brokers. Few other law firms in Colorado can claim to give you that same caliber of service and insight when it comes to real estate contracts and transactions.
