Why Should You Hire a Lawyer to Sell or Purchase Real Estate?

It is usually a terrible idea to sign any contract without having an attorney look it over first. This is especially important with real estate contracts. If you are a seller and received an offer to purchase or if you are a buyer about to sign an offer to purchase, it is always a good idea to have an attorney review the contract first. We can review these documents with you and alert you to anything that is disadvantageous, missing, or has a possibility of having negative financial or legal impact.

Once you have a signed contract, whether you are buying or selling, you have to comply with the terms of the contract. Real estate contracts have many deadlines and requirements. In addition, there may be local or municipal requirements that must be met before the real estate closing can take place. A real estate attorney will help you navigate through them to make sure that you don’t expose yourself to any adverse legal or financial consequences. 

If you are purchasing a property, an attorney will make sure that you are getting a clear title. This means that the title will be free of any liens, judgments, or any other possibly unacceptable issues, such as property line encroachments.

Buying and selling property can be confusing, stressful, and time-consuming. When you have our legal team on your side, then buying or selling real estate in the Chicago area can be a positive and stress free experience.
