What your Real Estate Lawyer wants you to Know

When purchasing real estate you have the option of seeking the help of a Real Estate Lawyer. While it is often unheard of to contact a lawyer before purchasing real estate it could actually benefit you in the long run. We at Robinson, Seiler, Anderson & Fife, LC. in Provo have real estate lawyers that can ease the purchasing process for you. Below are just some of the things our real estate lawyer wants you to know about employing us on your next big purchase.

 

Don’t Wait to Call Us

As soon as you find some real estate that you are interested in purchasing you need to contact your real estate lawyer. We can be there to guide you through the paperwork and contracts to make sure you aren’t getting the short end of the deal. Waiting to contact us after you sign a contract will only cause more headaches later on.

 

Hire a Professional

You want to make sure that you hire an attorney that is an actual ‘Real Estate Attorney’. All too often you go with a lawyer that you know or that your friends have referred and they don’t have the real estate experience needed to backup your transaction. Laws and customs can vary widely from state to state, so it’s critical to go with an attorney who has experience with real estate law in the area in which you’re looking to buy.

 

Attorneys have more Power

Some states require that an attorney be involved in a real estate closing, while other states let real estate agents prepare purchase contracts without any involvement from attorneys. Typically the buyer pays for a real estate attorney. In most cases, an attorney is going to act more like a referee, ensuring that everything follows the law. But if you’re looking to add unusual terms to a purchase agreement, or if you’re worried about a specific legal issue, an attorney can provide legal advice that a real estate agent can’t.
