  • The real estate department of YCR recently worked cooperatively with other counsel to close the purchase on behalf of a local historic preservation group of a significant south-of-Broad residence.  The acquisition was made more difficult by the presence of mechanic and judgment liens as well as a pending mortgage foreclosure, in addition to other unique circumstances surrounding the transaction.  YCR’s Bill Bates (Sr. Counsel) and Barb Morgan (legal assistant) worked with other counsel and the client’s governing body to fine tune the contract of sale and then to handle a multitude of unusual closing details which required coordination with attorneys for all lien holders and with Seller’s closing counsel.  Close coordination with a national title insurance company was required to complete the closing process.  The protection and ultimate rehabilitation of the residence located in one of the city’s prime residential neighborhoods further validates the work of the client’s historic and preservation efforts; YCR is proud to have been a part of this joint effort.

Johnson, managing partner at YCRLAW, was honored to be selected as the feature story for the inaugural issue of the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce’s new magazine, MetroSource.  The Chamber will begin publishing this magazine four times a year.  We are delighted and humbled that Mr. Johnson’s efforts have been recognized in this extraordinary way.
