Why You Need a Real Estate Lawyer
Buying and selling real estate is like no other transaction. The purchaser is not merely buying a product off the shelf. The seller may need to take steps to ensure that “marketable title” is delivered to the purchaser at closing. Certain obligations are imposed on the parties for which they can be held responsible even after the closing. Given the lasting consequences of a real estate transaction and the fact that it may be one of your biggest investments, you want to be sure to have solid representation throughout the process.
Some of the issues that may arise in a real estate transaction include boundary line disputes, clearing objections to title, improvements and structures that are not code compliant. In addition, often times a seller needs to remain in possession of the property after closing; this often occurs where the seller is simultaneously purchasing another property. In these situations, a post-closing possession agreement must be drafted and negotiated.
These are just a few of the issues that the firm handles to help ensure a smooth transaction. If you are buying, selling or even leasing a property, contact us to ensure your interests are properly protected.
