Attorney in an office speaking to client

Privette Law Office in Willow Springs, MO has a proven track record of assisting clients in South Central Missouri with buying and selling real estate. Even when litigation isn’t necessary, real estate transactions often require the services of an attorney. A mistake in preparing an agreement, deed, setting up your business, or interpreting an easement can be costly. 

Southern Missouri Real Estate Deeds


Deeds are needed when transferring property from one person or entity to another. They must be prepared correctly to be considered valid. There are many different types of deeds that you may encounter when purchasing real estate in South Central Missouri, including:

  • General Warranty Deeds
  • Special Warranty Deeds
  • Quit Claim Deeds
  • Beneficiary Deeds
  • Contract for Deeds

Some deeds are only appropriate in particular situations. A qualified attorney can make you aware of which kind is right for your situation and make sure there are no mistakes that could come back to haunt you. Our attorneys have experience preparing all types of deeds. 

Easements


An easement grants a party legal usage of another person’s land. The use of the land is confined to a clearly defined purpose such as allowing someone to use a road that runs across a neighbor’s property or giving a power company the right to run electrical lines above someone’s land. There are two types of easements: easement appurtenant and easement in gross. The easement appurtenant runs with the land and is binding to future owners of the property. Easement in gross only covers a specific person unless extended to someone else by the property owner. Not understanding the implications of an easement can cause major headaches for both parties.
