Why Hire A Real Estate Attorney?

If you are a prospective buyer or seller of residential real estate, you might wonder whether you should hire a real estate lawyer. Most New Jersey real estate buyers and sellers hire lawyers to protect their rights because of the substantial financial decisions involved. However, you are not required to retain a real estate lawyer to close on a home or another property.

Need a real estate attorney to prepare an agreement of sale? Download our handy checklist to ensure you have all the information needed for he or she to do so.

A real estate lawyer can help you draft or review an agreement of sale and assist with property inspections and disclosures. A lawyer can also research the title and help with ownership or title issues. An attorney can also help with all pre-closing and closing duties and represent you during closing. When you have an attorney, he or she can serve as a valuable partner. A lawyer helps to ensure legal compliance and a fair transaction. Working with a lawyer can help to limit potential future problems and help you understand your responsibilities and rights. When you retain an attorney, you can have peace of mind while you go through a complex financial transaction.

For more information about what you need for an agreement of sale, you can download our real estate checklist here.

Real estate attorneys can easily identify problems that might otherwise go unnoticed before closing. While a real estate agent has experience in marketing properties, guiding buyers to the right homes, and evaluating offers, an agent is not a substitute for the work of a real estate lawyer.

Commercial real estate transactions require careful research before going through with a sale or purchase. Attorneys can perform market analyses, research profitability and zoning laws, and make sure that businesses choose the right locations for their operations. If a variance or easement is needed, a commercial real estate lawyer can help by representing your business in front of a zoning board. Commercial real estate financing can also be complex, and a lawyer can help to explain all aspects of the process.
