What Does an Attorney Do for a Real Estate Closing?
Searching for a new home is usually an enjoyable process for first time homeowners. Whether you are purchasing a home on your own or with a partner, most people spend most of their time finding the right house, putting in an offer, and negotiating the price of their new home.
Obviously, these are important details that factor into your decision when buying a house, but it is crucial to remember that you do not officially own the house until the real estate closing. For many people, that’s where things become stressful in the home buying process…
Consulting a real estate attorney is a way to avoid trouble at the real estate closing. There are many benefits of consulting a real estate attorney in Atlanta or Elberton when closing on your new home, including but not limited to the following:
Experience and knowledge: A real estate attorney knows the closing process backwards and forwards. For that reason, a real estate lawyer can steer the process to avoid time wasting and expensive complications. Saving you time and money is important when buying a new home!
Save you from trouble: A real estate attorney can help you if the seller is trying to hide something from you. Your real estate lawyer will make sure to uncover any concerning issues before you sign on the dotted line. This often comes into play with the terms and conditions of the purchase contract.
Someone to answer your questions: Many home buyers make the mistake of assuming that their real estate agent is all they need. While your agent can help with many steps in the process, such as showing you homes and negotiating a deal, they don’t have the legal knowledge of a real estate attorney.
Not to mention the fact that they also want to see your deal close no matter what, as that’s the only way they make money! A real estate lawyer, on the other hand, only has your best interest when closing on your potential new home.
Assistance with unusual circumstances: Maybe you’re buying a home with tenants that you need to remove after closing, as perhaps you intend to move in. Or maybe you’re buying a home with seller financing. These types of circumstances call for a unique approach from a real estate lawyer.
Everyone’s home buying experiences are different, so these are just a few possible ways to benefit from consulting with an attorney for any or all your real estate closings. If you know you want to go down this road, you will need to find a real estate attorney early into your home buying process to ensure that you’re on the correct page as you come toward closing. A real estate attorney will do whatever it takes to protect your legal rights, which will allow you to close on the home without any concerns.
