Do You Always Need a Real Estate Lawyer?
When people are buying or selling a property, they often want to try to economize and save money. After all, buying a house has become prohibitively expensive. One place where people should not try to save a few dollars is by going without an attorney. There are too many things that can go wrong in a real estate deal.
Even the slightest mistake in the documents can cause you financial and logistical headaches. The contract of sale is exactly that – a contract, meaning that you are bound by its terms. If you do not have the protection afforded to you by specific terms that you need, you can face a financial loss, whether you are a buyer or seller.
There are other issues that arise in a real estate transaction that require the help of an experienced real estate lawyer. For example, there could problems that arise during an inspection that could force the parties to renegotiate the deal. There may be other permitting and environmental issues that may change the risk profile of owning the home. The average homeowner may not even know what issues they are looking for, let alone how to deal with them if they arise.
Hiring an attorney for a real estate transaction is an investment that both saves you some hassle and protects you in the future. It is a small price to pay for the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you will have fewer or no unexpected surprises in the future.
