We successfully assist those selling real estate "by owner". Why pay a realtor 4%-10% commission? Once the homeowner finds a buyer, our office will prepare the initial purchase agreement, provide guidance, review all documents, and coordinate with the title company and the buyer for closing dates and attend the closing.
From leases, evictions, and litigation involving claims to title to forged signatures on deeds, improper recording, notary mistakes, homeowner's assessments, construction liens, we have successfully handled many cases involving real estate. Our past experience allows us to custom tailor a strategy and apply an approach that has been proven succesful to attain a client's goals in the quickest and most efficient manner.

Transferring a business to the next generation is part of the Estate Planning process. During the administration of a trust or will, a business may be closed, sold or transfered. The team at John R. Tatone & Associates has handled issues such as this and are well prepared to assist with explaining, negotiating or drafting the necessary documents. We focus on protecting our clients and make the process as quick and simple as possible. We coordinate with accountants and financial advisors to develop a complete plan to eliminate suprises. Our goal is to minimize the taxes, debts or any other burdens in an effort to provide a smooth transition either into a new business venture, the family business, or retiring from the business.
Wills, Trusts and Estate Planning
It is always best to be prepared and make sure your wills and trusts are set up correctly. Correct and complete Estate Planning will avoid confusion and insure the clients wishes are carried out as planned.
Probate Administration and Litigation
Being in charge an Estate or Trust can often feel like a second job. The team at John R. Tatone & Associates has been through the administration of wills and trust so often, it's like second nature. We take the burden from the person appointed in a trust or will. We keep the client informed at each stage of the process whether by phone, e-mail or an in person meeting. We provide the information that clients need to successfully complete administration of the estate or trust of a loved one. In many cases, we find assets that others either forgot or never knew existed. In most of our administration cases, the clients do not go to court. Whether you are appointed as Personal Representative (Executor), Trustee, Conservator, Guardian or Attorney-in-fact under a power of attorney, we will help you navigate the Probate Court and fullfill your duties.
Occasionally there are court battles. A will or trust may be created under unusual circumstances. The money that was once in the account is now gone. The decedent's home was invaded by family and friends after the funeral (or before) and valuable items are missing. We have seen these and many other types of cases. Our extensive experience allows us to inform the client on the strengths and weaknesses of each case and what to expect before, during and after a court hearing. We can estimate total costs and time, so you know if it worth the fight.
