Ocean County Residential Real Estate Attorney
he sale or purchase of a home is usually one of the most financially important transactions most people undertake. Let our real estate attorneys take the stress and confusion out of what can be a complicated process. At Hiering, Dupignac, Stanzione, Dunn & Beck, PC, our loyalties do not lie with the realtor, title agent or bank. Rather, we are concerned with earning your trust and focusing on protecting your interests throughout the transaction.

Contact our Toms River residential real estate lawyers online or by telephone at 888-276-1590 to schedule an initial consultation.

New Jersey Real Estate Closing Lawyers
Our residential real estate lawyers can assist you with obtaining necessary permits, performing title checks, negotiating favorable lending terms and any other administrative procedures necessary in the process of:

-Making additions to your home or property
-Selling or purchasing your residence
-Obtaining zoning permits, site plan approval and variances

Since the recent economic crisis, many banks have attempted to require that individuals be represented by title companies during purchases or sales of property instead of by attorneys. Unfortunately, the title company cannot protect your rights by negotiating the terms of your contract and will not protect your investment where home inspection issues such as water or termite damage arise. For this reason, New Jersey consumers and clients are entitled to attorney representation in real estate closings. Our real estate lawyers will protect your rights by:

-Negotiating your contracts
-Reviewing and resolving home inspection issues
-Reviewing your mortgage documents
-Negotiating and resolving title issues
-Pursuing litigation to protect your rights

Our attorneys will ensure that your rights and interests are protected as you navigate the purchase or sale of your home. We can also assist with any land use and zoning or property tax appeal questions you may have.
