Buying A House: Start With An Attorney

I’m often asked by friends and family when they are buying and selling a house something to the effect of: “When do you get involved?”

My answer to them is always the same: right now.

Buying and selling a home is a big financial decision.

An attorney can help explain the purchase and sales contract to you and draft negotiable provisions on your behalf.

I often think that most problems in closings of real estate transactions arise because attorneys were not involved in the process prior to signatures being placed on the contract.

My advice: call an attorney before you sign on the dotted line of a purchase and sales contract.
