The Importance of a Professional Real Estate Attorney

The sale or purchase of your home will probably be the largest and most important financial transaction of your life. For this reason, it is important that your attorney is involved in every aspect of the transaction. Your attorney evaluates such matters as:

  • Your broker's listing agreement;
  • The specific terms of the sales contract;
  • Income and property tax consequences;
  • Subdivision covenants, conditions and restrictions;
  • Liens and other defects of title;
  • Insurance requirements;
  • Mortgage terms and lender's requirements;
  • Federal and local statutes regarding disclosures required for real estate and lending transactions.
