If you're considering buying a home, it's probably going to be the most expensive investment you'll ever make. In addition to using a real estate agent to deal with the negotiation process, you may want to consider hiring a real estate lawyer to guide you through the legal process.
Real estate attorneys specialize in legal matters related to property, from sale transactions to disputes between parties.
Real Estate Lawyers: An Overview
Many states require that a real estate attorney be present at a closing. Even if your state does not require it, you might want one there for you.
A real estate attorney will review all of the paperwork in advance of the closing on your behalf and advise you of any problems or omissions with the documentation. At the closing, the attorney will represent your interests.
Most real estate lawyers charge by the hour for their services, although some charge a flat fee. The lawyer will advise you of this fee up front.
We know that few things can be more exciting than buying your first home or commercial property. Often, a person’s home or business reflects of a lifetime of hard work, investment and achievement. Whether you are buying your first home, selling an existing property or are leasing a potential commercial property, our partners are here to help.
