Purchasing real estate is one of the largest purchases most people make in their lifetimes. This is why it is important to ensure you are legally protected in any type of real estate transaction. Consulting with an experienced real estate attorney during any real estate transaction is a wise step to take.
Whether you are buying or selling real property you should consult with a local attorney that is experienced in handling all types of real estate transactions. An attorney will be able to create or review real estate contracts and agreements to ensure the real estate laws of your state are followed and that you are legally protected.
Remember, real estate agents are not lawyers, and they can not give legal advice. So, be leery of any real estate agent that says you don’t need an attorney to review your real estate purchase and sale agreements. Only an experienced real estate agent can provide legal advice, so take the time to consult with a local real estate attorney to ensure your legal rights are protected. Taking the time to talk with a lawyer can save you a lot of stress and money if something goes wrong with your real estate transaction.
