Buying or Selling a Home
The best time to involve an attorney is before you sign
any documents. When a client is purchasing or selling real estate, it is important to have a lawyer review any documents before signing. After the signing is too late,
because you have entered into a binding contract by signing.
If you are selling your own home without a brokerówhich is common in Massachusettsóconsult a lawyer to draft
the real estate documents you need. Even if you are listing with a real estate agent, we suggest you seek legal advice. Typically, realty agents recommend
speaking with an attorney, because realty agents are prohibited by law from giving legal advice.
There are many potential dangers even to signing an offer without the advice of a real estate attorney. Even an offer
can have binding, legal provisions a layperson may not understand.
One of the major issues before the closing is a problem
with title. When there is a title problem, the buyer should resolve it before the closing. Our experienced lawyers know how to work with title issues and protect clients' interests in property.
