Real Issues. Real Results.

Peacock Keller’s real estate group regularly assists individuals, developers, investors, lenders and businesses throughout Southwestern Pennsylvania in all areas of Real Estate law, including the acquisition, development, financing, sale, and leasing of both residential and commercial properties. Real estate issues, whether complex or basic, require familiarity with the local property landscape and the distinct requirements, regulations, and procedures of each county and municipality. Our attorneys draw upon their extensive experience in the local real estate market to effectively and efficiently represent clients in a wide range real estate-related questions or concerns.

Residential Transactions

The purchase or sale of a home may be one of the most important decisions you will ever make, and our attorneys understand that it can be a complicated and stressful time. Whether or not a real estate agent is involved, our attorneys will counsel you throughout every step of the process ranging from the preparation and review of your purchase and sale agreement to handling the closing so that your experience goes as smoothly as possible. As an underwriter for First American Title Insurance Company, our attorneys help to ensure lenders and buyers that past issues don’t affect the property after the sale is closed.

Understanding ‘Fee Simple’ Not So Simple

Title Insurance Protects Your Interests


Our Attorneys regularly draft, negotiate and review residential and commercial leases for both Landlords and Tenants. Whether a tenant has questions about his or her residential lease, or a commercial lessor seeks representation in the negotiation of a multi-year lease, Peacock Keller is equipped to help. Although the material terms of the lease are usually the primary concern, significant attention paid to the fine print can relieve uncertainty and guard against future litigation, and Peacock Keller can advise every step of the way. While preventing litigation with careful drafting before it arises is the best practice, our attorneys are available to assist with lease disputes, as well.

Commercial Transactions

Peacock Keller’s real estate group works closely with lenders, individuals and businesses to structure, negotiate, and close both large and small commercial real estate transactions. In addition, our wide experience in representing developers throughout the region provides an advantage in all stages of development.  If you are considering the acquisition, development, transfer, or refinancing of commercial property, Peacock Keller stands ready to assist you in achieving your goals.
