Why Should I Hire a Real Estate Attorney?
Because buying property is a major expense, you may feel inclined to cut costs by avoiding lawyer fees. However, passing on legal advice may just end up costing you more long-term. Real estate attorneys act as a liaison between buyers, sellers, and lenders to ensure that contracts are upheld and all conditions are agreed upon, mitigating any unforeseen disputes.
Some of the several factors to consider when procuring property or making a home purchase include documentation and contracts, land inspection, boundary disputes, proper zoning, building permits, leasing agreements, title agreements, and more. Any one of these may cause unforeseen challenges and legal issues in the future, causing a dream to turn into a nightmare.
A real estate lawyer will guide you through the process and advocate for you every step of the way, confirming that deeds are transferred accordingly, the title is valid, and that all closing documents are completed to your understanding.
