Real Estate

Guidance through every stage of your real estate transaction

By listening to my clients’ wishes and according to sound legal practices, I negotiate and prepare contracts for the purchase and sale of residential and commercial real estate.  I work with clients to resolve problems that might arise in a land sale.   I review abstracts of title for the issuance of a title opinion or a Iowa Title Guaranty commitment.  I prepare deeds to residential and commercial real estate.   I represent property owners with property leases, farmers with rental contracts, developers with the creation and establishment of subdivision, re-zoning applications, easement and property disputes and other real estate matters.

I handle real estate in Iowa City, Coralville, North Liberty, Tiffin, and broader Johnson County, Linn County, Cedar County, and Washington County.

I am member of the Johnson County Title Standards Committee, the Real Estate Section of the Iowa State Bar Association, and I am a member of Iowa Title Guaranty. Contact Melvin O. Shaw today for your real estate law needs.

Melvin has always promptly returns calls and emails, gives educated, clearly stated advice. Appointments are made and kept. I have already recommended Melvin and would do so again.
