Columbus, Ohio Law Services

At The Fox Law Firm, we offer clients a wide range of services to help them through complex legal matters regarding the ownership and use of real estate and personal belongings in Columbus, Ohio.


The law governs the ability for a person to transfer their real estate and properties to someone else, as well as change the type of ownership. For example, when people want to sell their properties or gift them to someone else, or change the type from sole ownership to joint tenancy, there are certain rules that will determine whether or not doing so is legal for the specific land or real estate in question. At The Fox Law Firm, we can assist you with these legal matters.


A deed is a legal document that states who owns a specific piece of real estate or land. There are multiple types of deeds, each with different rules regarding the extent to which a person owns specific properties. Whether you need assistance preparing a deed or overseeing the transfer of a deed to a new owner, our Ohio firm can help.

Private Land Use

Private homeowner associations in Columbus can make laws regarding the use of real estate and land in a specific area. The acts of creating, enforcing and challenging these laws fall under property law and private land use laws, and The Fox Law Firm can help you in any of these areas.

Land Contracts

A land contract is used when a seller finances a buyer’s real estate purchase. Hiring an attorney to provide advice or assist with the contract ensures both parties’ interests are protected and the intended goal is accomplished.

Zoning Laws

What a person can and cannot do with their Franklin County, Ohio land and real estate is regulated by a government’s zoning laws. When you make a purchase, a zoning law will dictate whether that land can be used for residential, commercial or industrial purposes, as well as specific rules regarding how and where your home or business building is built on the lot. Working with attorneys can help you settle disputes related to city and county zoning laws.


Whether you’re a landlord creating a real estate lease to use when renting out your home or a business owner looking to rent an office building, have a lawyer review the lease before either party signs it to make sure the terms are fair.


Easements give people permission to use other peoples’ properties. For example, if the only way to access your home is by going through someone else’s yard, you may be able to get an easement over their land. This can be a tricky matter, and our law firm is here to provide representation during easement-related litigation.

Adverse Possession

In cases of adverse possession, people claim the right to real estate and properties without paying for them. This typically happens when a person has lived on the land for a significant length of time, or when incorrect boundaries have been used for a length of time. If you’re dealing with disputes related to adverse possession, our firm can help settle them.

Personal Property

Personal property laws state what happens to gifts as well as real estate and land that have been abandoned or lost. For example, in order for a building to be considered abandoned, the owners must have intended to let go of their ownership over it. Since “finders keepers” doesn’t always apply in legal situations, it’s helpful to have lawyers work through these issues with you.

Real Estate Law

The Fox Law Firm also specializes in all areas of real estate law, including estate planning, probate, land contracts, mortgage documents, business law and more. When you’re deciding what you want to happen to your assets at the time of your death, our firm can help you with estate planning and deciding how your assets will be distributed during the probate process. We can also prepare and review documents such as a mortgage, lease, closing documents and more. Whatever your real estate-related needs, The Fox Law Firm is here to help.
