Many people mistakenly believe a Realtor or real estate agent is all the "representation" needed to avert legal problems when purchasing a residential property. In fact, Realtor and real estate agents have little or no education and training regarding the legal aspects of property aquisition.
We have all heard the horror stories when a person or couple finds out too late that a problem exists with the deed, or the buyer gets stuck with non-repairs the seller was thought to have made. Involving an experienced, competent real estate attorney early in the home purchasing process will potentiall save you time, money and many frustrations.
An experienced real estate lawyer will make sure your financial interests are protected, ensure you have "clear title" to the property, and create specific contractual requirements the seller must adhere to in order to avoid further legal action.
