Why have an attorney?

Buying real estate is a complicated business. There are complex legal and title issues, plus a whole new vocabulary of unfamiliar terms to deal with. What’s more, for most people it’s still the biggest single purchase they will ever make.

With all this in mind, don’t you want someone on your side who is expert and knowledgeable? Your real estate attorney can look out for your interests, ensure you get a clear title to your new property, as well as help you protect your investment for the future. Legal advice offers you something the average homebuyer really needs and usually lacks: knowledge of the subtleties and peculiarities of real estate law and the transfer of property rights and title.

At a real estate closing today, many buyers go without counsel of their own. This means, in effect, that they’re not taking advantage of all the benefits of legal representation.

Real estate attorney can help you

Just consider all the ways a real estate attorney can help you. Before the closing, your attorney can explain the following:

  • Your liability if assuming an existing mortgage.
  • The effect of any existing mortgage and construction liens.
  • Alternative means of financing, including the effect of mortgage prepayment.
  • Where and how to file for homestead exemption.
  • The seller’s liability after the sale.
  • Post-contract liability for fire and other hazards.
  • Is the property’s recorded legal description sufficient?
  • Do the rights include physical access to the property that meets your needs?
