Real Estate transactions have become increasingly complex. In order to make sure that everything is done right and that you are protected from liability down the road, I recommend engaging an attorney to assist you with your purchase or sale of real estate.
My recommendation is to hire an attorney either before or at the same time that you sign a contract for the purchase or sale. Be careful with this — most real estate agents use a form contract that includes an opportunity for attorneys to approve or make changes to the contract within five days of its signing, but if this normal form contract is not being used, I would ask why it is not and get an attorney to protect you even earlier.
Typically, residential real estate transactions are done on a flat-fee basis, so you will have every opportunity to ask all questions and have a full understanding of everything you are signing at the closing. In my practice, I pride myself on returning calls quickly and making sure that my clients are clear on everything they are doing – after all, they’re spending hundreds of thousands of dollars!
Whether you’re selling your home or buying one, it is critical to have an attorney on your side to navigate through this increasingly-complex area. After all, you’re only spending or receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars!
