Local Real Estate Lawyers For Sellers
Selling real estate – with or without a real estate broker – can be a multi-step, complicated transaction. And the last thing you want is for a dispute to crop up partway through the deal, or worse, after the deal has closed.
You want to be sure that you’ve disclosed everything about the property that you’re legally bound to disclose, including defects…that you have the legal right to sell what you’re selling and that an easement, boundary dispute, or allowable land use issue doesn’t come back to haunt you later…that you haven’t intentionally or unintentionally misrepresented anything…that you have clear title to the property…and more!
How To Prepare To Sell Real Estate
Before you put your property on the market, it can be beneficial to perform due diligence on the title to the property (including title insurance exceptions) and land use research. If the deed is vague or there’s a cloud on the title, it’s better to know that, and cure it, before you market your property to potential buyers.
Real Estate Sales / Purchase Agreements
Purchase and sales agreements for real estate have a multitude of clauses, all of which you need to understand before you present the contract to a buyer and/or sign it. From earnest money amounts to inspection deadlines, closing dates to warranties, it’s important to pay attention to every word in a contract and to have the contract reviewed by a real estate attorney. Even if you plan to sell your property to a family member, friend, or associate, a well-written legal agreement is a must-have!
Disputes Over Sales / Purchase Agreements
Real estate purchase can often go sour in the middle of negotiations and/or during escrow, and time is always of the essence if you don’t want the deal to collapse.
