PURCHASING A PROPERTY

During the purchase of a property, a real estate attorney can make sure that all paperwork and contracts are drawn properly, adhere to rules set forth by the state and local municipalities.

 

Title review is an essential part of the purchasing property.  Reviewing the title to the property determines if the seller has any liens or judgments and insures that the seller has the legal right to sell the property. It’s best completed by an experienced real estate attorney who can negotiate a price reduction should a title search reveals a problem.

 

Failing to file the appropriate documents properly at the county and state levels can result in dire consequences. A real estate attorney will navigate through state regulations quickly and efficiently.

 

Your real estate attorney will attend the closing with you. Should a real estate dispute arise, your attorney is there to help protect your interests.
