Before hiring a real estate attorney to help with your house purchase, you’ll want to check references from others who worked with this lawyer. Try to get references from other clients with similar housebuying needs and priorities. Ask these questions, plus anything else that interests you. If you’re buying a house in a state such as New York, where attorneys play a key role in the homebuying process (and attorney fees can be quite high), your questions should be especially thorough.
