Real Estate Attorneys

If you are planning to buy or sell a house, land or building, you should consult a Real Estate lawyer who can help you negotiate terms of your transaction and draft the terms of the contract or contracts involving the transaction and sale. The Real Estate lawyer can represent you in handling the closing of the real estate transaction. In some states, a lawyer’s presence is required for real estate transactions. In some states, title insurance is required with respect to the purchase of a home or other real estate. The Real Estate lawyer usually has relationships with title insurance company representatives. At the closings of real estate transactions, lawyers often conduct the proceedings.

Even if you are not required to hire a real estate lawyer, you should consider the benefits of hiring one to review the contracts or other documents involved in your transaction to make sure that your rights are protected. Many of the documents routinely involved in real estate transactions are not easy to understand. The Real Estate lawyer can help explain the meanings of the terms. A Real Estate lawyer can also help you in matters relating to a mortgage foreclosure, or represent you as a tenant or as a landlord in cases involving leases and rentals.

Also, the location of the property involved in the transaction is very important.  Each state has its own property laws. In some states, the laws may differ between different counties and cities. Therefore, a lawyer located in the area where the property is located is likely to have more relevant knowledge about what is required in the transaction than an out-of-town lawyer. If you are looking for a new home in an area which is outside the area where you currently live, you should consider hiring a lawyer who practices real estate law in the area where you are buying the property, instead of hiring a lawyer from the area in which you currently live.
