1 Negotiate Purchase Price and Contract Terms
Real estate attorneys work with other attorneys, real estate agents, developers, brokers, and investors to negotiate favorable terms and conditions for their clients. (This means saving you $$$.)
2 Prepare and Review Contracts and Other Legal Documents
Legal documents are complex, and each has its own legal implications and consequences. Attorneys are versed in “legalese” and can explain legal documents such as purchases, sales agreements, and promissory notes to their clients in layman’s terms.
3. Communicate with All Parties Involved
Real estate transactions involve many different parties, including seller and buyer, real estate agents, mortgage lenders, closing attorney, etc. An attorney can effectively navigate relationships with all parties to ensure their clients’ best interests are maintained. Having a real estate attorney involved can give you peace of mind.
4. To Investigate and Resolve Title Issues
Title issues such as liens, judgments, zoning, and other encumbrances can greatly affect the value and enjoyment of property. These issues can be costly and time consuming if handled without an attorney. Attorneys are trained to spot and resolve problems that their clients do not recognize.
5. Save Money in the Future
“Prevention is better than a cure” is a common and true saying. Hiring an attorney in the very beginning of a transaction can save clients thousands of dollars in the long run. For instance, a preliminary review of a contract by a real estate attorney can result in identifying unfavorable fine print terms which saves a client thousands of dollars in future litigation fees and court costs.
