Residential Real Estate Lawyer

Are you in the process of buying a house, condo, or other residential property? Before you shell out the down payment or sign the agreement of sale you need the assistance of an attorney. Failing to consult with an attorney before you take these important steps can result in you buying into problems and issues you didn’t know even existed.

Once you’ve signed an agreement, now what? It's time to make sure everything goes smoothly from now until closing. A residential real estate lawyer can help you negotiate with the other party home repair costs raised by the inspection, look over any contractor agreements you need to sign and represent you at settlement. You can't just bring the house back with the receipt and get a full refund! You need an experienced lawyer to help you navigate the purchase or sale from beginning to end.

Whether you are a buyer or seller, you should contact a lawyer. Real estate brokers work for commissions and don’t get paid unless the sale goes through. Their interests are not always the same as yours and they are not your advocates. An attorney will work for you and review all of your legal documents, negotiate on your behalf to make sure that all disclosures and terms are fully compliant with the law and assure that your rights and interests are protected.

At times, the seller has MORE to worry about than the buyer, and as such, will need good guidance. You don't want to end up sued by the buyer for an honest mistake. Daniel Katz, Esquire can help with all documents needed to sell your property, and do so with peace of mind.
