We certainly think there are benefits to hiring an attorney for buying or selling property. Your private attorney will look out for your best interest in all aspects. Your attorney is being paid by you and represents you only. He or she isn’t being paid a real estate commission or working on behalf of the mortgage lender or title company.
Purchase agreements should include specific financing terms, seller assistance on closing costs, home inspection contingency, full disclosure on fixtures & appliances included in the sale, closing dates, and a contingency for selling your existing home.
