Property Law, Landlord/Tenant, and Redemption Rights

There are few firms in Kansas City that specialize in the utilization or extinguishing of redemption rights, and those that do are often only interested in your business if you are a large corporation or bank. Higgins & Corder routinely represents property owners, landlords, buyers at sheriff's sales, and property developers for all matters relating to the sale of property, the purchase of property, claiming or extinguishing redemption rights, evictions, and foreclosures.

We also specialize in aiding investors with purchases of mortgages, assignments of rights, and trust deeds in both Kansas and Missouri.
