Buying or selling a house, condo or land often appears to be a straightforward process, even if you’ve never done it before. Unfortunately, because it seems simple, mistakes are common, and those errors can cost you dearly. Learn why hiring a real estate lawyer makes the difference in a successful property transfer.
A real estate sale requires many different kinds of documents, especially if you or the other party is taking out a mortgage. Any piece of missing information or the wrong form can keep the transaction from being completed at your closing.
Your Interests Aren’t Represented
The real estate agent works for the party who hired them, and that client’s best interests are always the agent’s focus. Without real estate professionals working directly for you, there’s no guarantee that your rights will be honored. And once you sign those rights away, you may be stuck.
The Prepared Contract Doesn’t Accurately Describe the Sale
There’s no one-size-fits-all real estate transaction, so your contract shouldn’t be like that either. Blank contracts available online or unknown sources presented for you to sign at a closing may not accurately describe the purchase or sale, leaving you vulnerable to problems down the line.
