Law Office of Lester F. Hardy

Experienced Real Estate Law
In St. Helena, California


An Attorney For Your Every Real Estate Need

Whether one is acquiring vacant or underused land for a new development, or operating an existing agricultural or commercial use, real estate investments come with their own set of risks, especially in the highly-regulated environment of California. Whether it’s an individual home sale or a major development project, mistakes can be disastrous.

As a Napa County real estate lawyer with offices in St. Helena, I help buyers, sellers, developers, investors and other clients with a wide variety of issues and transactions involving residential, agricultural and commercial property, including:

  • Purchases and sale
  • Disclosures
  • Agricultural and commercial leases
  • Boundary issues
  • Easements
  • Contracts
  • Title issues
  • Common interest developments
  • Homeowners and condominium owners associations
  • CC&Rs
  • Land use and zoning

Transactions And Litigation

I seek to help my clients with their every need in real estate law, and so I work on both transactions and related litigation, including quiet title actions.

Because I appreciate the high cost of legal services, my goal is always to help clients catch issues before they become problems.

When disputes arise for my clients, I help them find effective and efficient solutions. Whenever possible, I work to resolve disputes through negotiation, but I have the experience and skill to argue on my clients’ behalf in court, when necessary.

I also help clients with land use and zoning issues, representing them in public hearings and private meetings with state and local regulatory agencies.
