Our clients involved in real estate matters are business persons, investors, developers and private home owners. These are difficult times for homeowners and commercial tenants alike. You need a real estate attorney to protect your rights in such a complicated legal transaction.
The first step of a legal transaction is the contract between the seller and the real estate agent. It is a wise seller who sees a real estate attorney before engaging a real estate agent. The agent’s marketing plan, commission, length of engagement and disclosure if he or she is representing both buyer and seller need a contract.
A real estate attorney is there to make sure that what you agreed to verbally makes it into the contract. It is a small price to pay to know that if your agent is not performing as required, you can fire him or her.
For a seller to actually sell property he or she must prove that he or she has the title to the property – in other words, pro of that he or she owns it. The title needs to be unencumbered for the sale to go ahead. Generally your attorney will investigate to make sure that the seller has clear possession of the title.
Most buyers get a mortgage to finance the buying of real property. These documents are complex and are best reviewed by an attorney. A closing is a meeting where the documents get signed. It is not uncommon for a buyer or a seller to allow his or her attorney to make sure that all documents are correct and execute them on his or her behalf.
