If you are in the process of selling or buying a home, it’s a great idea to have a real estate lawyer. At The Okonji Law Office, we have a very skilled real estate attorney ready to assist you with your next real estate purchase.
Real estate lawyers specialize in knowing the laws, rules, and regulations related to real estate for a specific state. Most new homeowners and even home sellers rely on their real estate agents to take them through the process of negotiation and closing. Though they are knowledgeable on what it takes to negotiate and close, they can only help to an extent.
A real estate lawyer knows and understands contracts and all the legal documents pertaining real estate. Because of this, they are able to help you better than a real estate agent would. In addition to understanding legal documents, they can also negotiate on your behalf.
An attorney always has your best interest at heart because they are representing you. The truth is they worry about all the legal parts that you genuinely might not know about.
Do I need one?
There are only 21 states that require a lawyer to be present while closing on a home. Unfortunately, Texas is not among those states. The state wants to give everyone the chance to make this decision by themselves, which is understandable. It is highly advised to have a real estate attorney with you during this process.
It is always in your best interest to have a lawyer with you when making big decisions like buying a home or commercial property or even closing on one. There are so many different legal documents and contracts that you must sign to finalize everything.
These contracts are filled with terms and conditions that you might not understand or even have the time to read and go through. With the help of a real estate attorney, they will review all the documents and let you know if anything needs to be renegotiated or talked about before buying and closing.
Most homeowners are not entirely sure of their abilities to understand the legal terminology in most documents. If you feel the same way and are unsure about closing on such a significant investment by yourself, then you need to hire a real estate lawyer.
