Buying or Selling Residential Property: Why Do I Need An Attorney?

What are some of the benefits to hiring an attorney to represent you in connection with the purchase or sale of your home?

The attorney will:

• Help you prepare the offer

• Help negotiate the sale price and conditions of the sale

• Draft and/or revise the Purchase and Sale Agreement to protect you and your money

• Assist you with the mortgage process

• Prepare you for the final walk-through of the property

• Attend the closing and represent your interests

• Provide you with a three-day right of review of the Purchase and Sale Agreement

To protect your best interests, we recommend that you always retain an attorney when buying or selling residential property.
