Your home is a valuable asset. So is your attorney. Whether you are buying or selling a home, the earlier in the process an attorney is involved, the better. Never sign a contract without your attorney reviewing it. At the very least, you should write in a contingency clause saying the contract is valid only with my attorney’s approval. A real estate attorney can examine your title and issue your title insurance policy as well as:
- Negotiate contracts on your behalf
- Give you legal advice
- Explain the meaning of the documents you will be asked to sign at closing
- Resolve title issues
One of the greatest benefits of using an attorney is that he or she has a legal and ethical obligation to work in your best interest. That means answering a lot of questions, including some very important ones that you may or may not know to ask.
