The sale or purchase of a property is an important transaction with varying interests and rules. Besides hiring a real estate agent, consider having a real estate attorney to take you through the legal process. Real estate attorneys handle legal real estate matters, such as transfer of ownership, preparation of legal documents, and real estate conflict management.
Real Estate Attorneys Prepare Legal Documents
These attorneys protect their clients' interests by preparing specific documents for their real estate situation. They tailor agreements to clients' needs rather than rely on standard contracts. The real estate attorney can prepare the Agreement of Sale, the Agreement of Purchase, title, and closing papers.
Advise Clients Against Bad Deals
Real estate attorneys ensure home sellers and buyers agree to legitimate real estate deals. They do the necessary due diligence by researching the property's history, inspecting its title and title insurance. They also check its zoning and establish existing unpaid utility bills or property taxes.
Real estate attorneys review the closing documents to ensure the paperwork is in order. The lawyers also verify all issues are resolved before completing the transaction. They use their understanding of real estate law to save clients' time and money in the closing process and ensure the deal is legal without any potential issues.
Manage Real Estate Disputes
Real estate disputes may arise from various issues, such as breach of contract, boundary matters, fraud, title, or insurance. The real estate attorney represents your interests in court or negotiations and guides you through your options when such problems emerge.
