Why should I have an attorney help me with sale or purchase of real estate?
There are complexities involved in all real estate transactions, whether the property is residential or commercial. Having an attorney represent you is the only way that you can ensure that you have someone on your side watching out only for your best interests. A purchase agreement is the legal contract used for purchase and sale of real estate, but there are steps you may need to take and issues you may need to consider before you even sign such an agreement. Once a purchase agreement has been signed, some of your options may be restricted. A qualified real estate attorney can make sure that your purchase agreement contains the necessary terms and provisions to ensure that you are protected.
How can a real estate attorney help me resolve title issues?
A real estate attorney can make sure that you are obtaining proper title protection when you purchase real estate. Title insurance is normally a sound investment, but a real estate attorney can make sure that you are obtaining the maximum coverage. At times you may own real estate with title problems. These problems may relate to encumbrances such as old mortgages or judgments. Sometimes title to your real estate is not held properly and steps can be taken to correct those problems before the property is sold. In other cases there may be issues involving adjacent properties that can be corrected with easements or other agreements. A real estate attorney can help you determine if problems exist and correct them for you.
How can a real estate attorney help me with landlord-tenant matters?
Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, issues can arise in any rental arrangement. Your rights are established both by law and by the terms of your lease. That is why having a written lease agreement is so important. Of course, some lease terms are more favorable for landlords and some are more favorable for tenants. Having a real estate attorney prepare or review your lease helps you verify that the issues that are most important to you are covered. Commercial leases, in particular, can be very lengthy and complicated documents. An experienced real estate attorney will be familiar with most types of lease provisions and can assist you in negotiating the terms. Perhaps you already have a signed lease. In that case, if issues do arise, a real estate attorney can advise you about the legal ramifications of the various provisions of your lease agreement.
