Buying or Selling Property

Buying and selling property is likely a major transaction in your life, and you want to be sure that you have the advice of a professional while working with a broker and signing a written contract, before doing a title search to ensure that the title is free of any issues such as long-lost grandchildren who own a small percentage of the property, or other potential pitfalls.

Once you have finalized all of the research to satisfy all parties who are involved, you will sign the final closing documents using a title company, and the transfer of ownership will be completed. Using an attorney throughout the entire process ensures you understand your transaction, and if there are any issues after your purchase or sale, that you have legal protections in place.

Deciphering Contract Terms

Contracts are always full of jargon and legalese, but it is very important that you are confident in every stipulation included in every contract before you sign any documents. As such, you want to be sure that you have an attorney who is very familiar with real estate transactions to verify that the contracts include everything you need, and that you are actually agreeing to the deal you believe you are accepting. When you have an attorney explain all of your paperwork, you can move forward signing your contracts with the confidence that you are positive about what you are signing, and that you will be protected if there are any issues in the future regarding these documents.

Signing Purchase Agreements

When you are signing a purchase agreement, there are many terms that are included in the agreement that stipulate what can and cannot happen with the property following signing the agreement. It is important that you review the agreement with an attorney to be sure that you are protected in case any other issues are discovered on the property, such as chemical contamination, or other undisclosed issues that would ultimately change the deal. If you are locked into a purchase agreement that does not address any of these issues, you may have little recourse when a party to the transaction sends you a Letter of Demand. An attorney will assist you to determine what is and is not allowed in the agreement, so you do not lose your investment.
