Why a Real Estate Lawyer May Come in Handy

Understand Your Contracts
Anytime you are buying real estate there are contracts that need to be reviewed. If there are special conditions with your real estate transaction, such as contingencies involving:

  • Inspections
  • Financing Approval
  • Sale of Your Current Home
  • Appraisal Value
  • Seller Providing Tax Information in a Timely Manner
  • Homeowner's Insurance Approval

An experienced real estate attorney in Camden County can look these things over and give you legal advice.

Solve Title Problems
The title shows who has rights to the property. It can be a good idea to have a real estate attorney check over your title and make sure it is genuine. Here are a few common title issues:

  • Forged Titles
  • Surprising Liens
  • Property Line Disputes
  • False Owners

Assist with Post Closing Transactions
Closing on a real estate transaction can be a process. It may even take up to eight weeks to finish after your offer has been accepted. Having an experienced real estate lawyer in your corner can help you feel at ease that everything is running smoothly.
