When buying a home, one wants to make sure the property is in good repair, that it passes all necessary inspections, that it meets one's needs and that one has financing in place. The same can be said for commercial real estate. Buying commercial property is a big investment. Oregon residents who wish to take this kind of thing on may want some assistance to ensure a smooth acquisition process.
If you have a loved one who passed away recently, and you or someone else has an issue with the contents of his or her will -- or lack thereof -- you may find yourself in an Oregon probate court, fighting things out.
