Key Real Estate Law Topics in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania, presented by Harper J. Dimmerman, Attorney at Law. Mr. Dimmerman is a seasoned Philadelphia real estate lawyer and litigator in Philadelphia. He is not currently accepting litigation matters. Philadelphia real estate law and throughout the rest of Pennsylvania even can be quite complicated, not to mention fast-paced.

Generally, the American Rule will apply and attorneys' fees will not be recoverable, ever where you have arguably been aggrieved and relatively blameless in the process.

Is there a confession of judgment clause? Do you feel like you lack bargaining strength because the location is good or the zoning fits with your particular business? Contract law can be one of those most damning areas of the law when things go wrong. Do not sign anything until a competent attorney reviews your lease. You could be setting your business up for failure before it even commences. Mr. Dimmerman has litigated these real estate cases and knows.
