Why Do You Need a Real Estate Attorney?

While many people hire a realtor during the home buying process, many transactions also require the assistance of a knowledgeable real estate attorney.  While the realtor can help you find a home to match your needs, a real estate attorney can provide you with important advice about the legal effects of any documents you sign before you commit to the purchase.  If a problem arises, he or she can advise you of your legal options and represent your interests through litigation, if necessary.

Real estate attorneys are knowledgeable about the various laws pertaining to real property.  They can help explain the procedures involved in common residential and commercial real estate transactions and provide you with valuable advice that enables you to make an informed decision.

They can provide you with assistance with various aspects of real estate law, including:

  • Reviewing any offers or agreements before you sign them
  • Reviewing other documents involved in real estate transactions, including modifications, environmental reports, current tenant agreements, leases and inspection reports
  • Assisting with the due diligence process
  • Inspecting the title for a clear title
  • Resolving title issues
  • Preparing deeds
  • Negotiating a new price if problems are discovered
  • Taking legal action if necessary disclosures were not made
  • Filing nuisance claims or resolving neighbor disputes
  • Protecting boundaries through legal action

Melvin Monachan is ready to assist you with your real estate law needs.
