Purchases and Closings
When purchasing a home, why do you need a lawyer? Moreover, why should you put time and effort into selecting an attorney before you make an offer on your new home or before you apply for financing? Why not allow your real estate agent to select an attorney for you? Don’t you just need an attorney at your closing, simply to make sure that you sign your documents in all the right places?
An attorney, especially an attorney of your own selection, is essential to protect your bests interests throughout the real estate transaction. Your attorney’s presence at your closing is only a small part of the role the attorney plays in the real estate transaction. You should select an attorney early in the purchase process, and your attorney should be involved in the transaction before you place an offer. Your attorney should review your contract of sale and be available to assist and represent your interests to all parties throughout the process.
In today’s economy, bank-owned properties or properties subject to a short sale are more and more common. Now, more than ever, buyers need an experienced attorney advocating for their interests from the earliest point in the property purchase.
