Water + Natural Resources
In New Mexico, land and water are precious commodities. Protect your investment by using skilled, experienced counsel in your real estate transactions. Egolf + Ferlic + Martinez + Harwood has worked with clients throughout New Mexico to ensure that their purchases and sales of real estate are secure and processed properly. The Firm will also work to ensure that you maximize the value of your property through a proper evaluation of any water rights that are associated with the real estate.
Regulations in northern New Mexico can be confusing and bewildering to property owners. We have represented clients seeking to obtain local government approval to build, remodel or develop. Egolf + Ferlic + Martinez + Harwood has also represented clients seeking to block the irresponsible development of property near to their homes. We can help you make the best use of your property and ensure that others make use of their property in compliance with local laws.
In our arid environment, nothing is more important than securing a safe and secure supply of clean water for your home, business, farm or acequia. New Mexico’s complex and unique system of water laws and regulations demand competent counsel to protect your rights and to complete your water right transactions. At Egolf + Ferlic + Martinez + Harwood, we have experience at every level – from our state water administrators to the United States Supreme Court. The Firm has represented individuals, corporations and acequias in water right transactions, applications for new water rights, protests of water transfers, and efforts to protect existing water rights.
