Ashtin focuses her practice in the areas of commercial and residential real estate transactions.
She represents both lenders and borrowers in all of the steps of a transaction, including drafting and negotiating contracts; identifying and curing title issues; identifying and negotiating potential issues such as legal access and easements; preparing title insurance policies; reviewing loan documents for compliance with South Carolina law; and thoroughly explaining loan and other closing documents to her clients.
She is also experienced in drafting and negotiating commercial leases; corporation, partnership, and limitation liability company formation; drafting and amending covenants, conditions, and restrictions; preparing Wills, Trusts, and other estate documents; and counseling Personal Representatives in the administration of estates.
Ashtin enjoys representing business owners and learning about their industries and real estate and financing needs. She strives to ensure her clients feel like their transaction is in good hands so that they can keep their focus on their project or business.
Ashtin’s interest in real estate law began in law school when she served as an Articles Editor of the American Bar Association’s Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Journal and took courses in commercial and residential real estate law taught by local lawyers. She learned the importance of being detail-oriented to ensure every step of the transaction runs smoothly while remaining mindful of her client’s overall goals.
