Purchasing a home

Purchasing a home is one of the largest investments a person can make in their life. A lawyer plays an important role in any real estate transaction, especially during the purchase of a new home. When you purchase a house, you will be required to enter into a legally binding contract with the seller of the property. The contract may affect your rights and impose certain legal obligations on you. This is where the real estate lawyer plays an important role. The real estate lawyer can explain your rights and obligations under the contract and help ensure that they are met. This can help you to avoid problems that could cost you time and money.

Our office offers comprehensive service to homebuyers from signing the contract to attending the closing.  Our services include:

  • Review and/or prepare your contract of sale with the seller
  • Negotiate changes to the contract to protect your interests
  • Order a title search and review the report for title defects
  • Review Building Department records for violations against the property
  • Ensure that there are no liens and/or judgments that will attach to the property and adversely affect the title. 
  • Review of the survey
  • Review Legality of Structures on the Property
  • Attending Closing
  • Review of all bank documents
  • Review Title bill
  • Review bank fees

Our office will guide you through the entire transaction. 
We are always available for questions.

Consultations are Free.
