What Are Some Common Reasons That People Need A Real Estate Attorney?
Real estate transactions inherently come with risk. A person might use a false identity or pretend to be an owner, then take the money and run. Sometimes, people don’t take the time to look at what someone is doing and fall into that. If you are buying real estate that is in distress, you especially should have a real estate attorney. There could be problems with inspections or zoning that the real estate attorney can help you with.
How Can I Prepare Beforehand To Sell Or Buy a Property?
Some sellers want to sell their property as is while others may want to do some repairs, in order to maximize their sale price. Some buyers want to buy property in a certain area, regardless of the condition. It varies greatly from person to person.
Should I Use A Standard Real Estate Listing Contract Or Should I Use A Custom One Drafted By My Attorney?
In most transactions, the standard listing agreement is fine. Some of the things that we typically deal with outside of the the listing agreement is oil tanks and soil contamination. That’s all taken care of with attorney review.
Will You As My Attorney Review The Agreement Prior To Signing When Buying A Property?
It’s almost irrelevant for me to review a contract pre-signing because anything that we need to take care of in that contract can be done during attorney review. Before the contract is signed by both parties, it’s not a contract.
