Why Hire A Real Estate Attorney?

Buying a house is one of the biggest investments in your life. It's an exciting time, but it also carries with it an overwhelming amount of paperwork and details. It can be tempting to neglect the fine print and move on, just hoping that everything will be OK.

The problem is that it is the overlooked details that can end up costing you down the road. That's why hiring a real estate attorney can be one of the best decisions you make in the process of buying your new home.

Here are three reasons why:

  • Your best interest is first and foremost. A mortgage company and seller all have different interests, so how can you truly know whether the papers you are signing don't include something that could hurt you in the future? Our attorneys will make sure your interest is protected.
  • Unforeseen problems. When you least expect it, it happens. Maybe there was a lien on the property from a former contractor. Or a repair that turned out to be broader in scope. When you buy/sell a home, there can be many twists and turns throughout the process. Wouldn't it feel more secured to have someone you can trust to call on when problems arise?
  • Document review. In any real estate transaction, there are piles of paperwork you feel obligated to read. But do you really know what you're reading? From mortgage loan documents to title searches and title insurance, we can review all contracts and documents and use our decades of experience in this area of law to make you aware of problems. Our review could save you money in the long run. The attorney's review can ensure that the description of the property is accurate, which can affect your taxes and the ability to make changes.

With so many variables and moving parts involved in purchasing a property, you need a lawyer with more knowledge of the ins and outs of real estate law than an agent.
