Buying or selling a home or property? Think you don’t need a lawyer? Think Again!

| Aug 20, 2014 | Real Estate, Real Estate Transactions |

Whether you’re looking to buy or sell a home or any other type of property, you may want to consider consulting a local real estate attorney. Often times, buyers and sellers are already working with a real estate broker and mortgage lender and do not believe that an attorney is necessary for such a common transaction. While these other real estate professionals can offer some dependable guidance, they are not lawyers. To ensure that you receive proper legal advice, you should consult an experienced real estate attorney.

From researching the title to reviewing every aspect of the real estate transaction, lawyers can supplement the non-legal advice provided by brokers and lenders. Unlike other professionals, real estate attorneys can review the transaction and highlight potential legal or tax consequences. In addition, if you are buying or selling in a community governed by a Homeowners’ Association operating under restrictive documents such as covenants, conditions and restrictions (CC&Rs) you would be wise to have an experienced real estate and HOA attorney review the document and explain the complicated rules relating to your property.

The attorneys at The Loftin Firm, P.C. understand the stress and costs associated with buying and selling property and have creative fee structures to fit your individual needs. Contact our knowledgeable real estate attorneys today!
