Background On Real Estate Law
Real estate transactions can be complex and confusing without the assistance of a real estate attorney. Real estate law involves a wide area of law including sales and acquisitions, title, land use, environmental, development, leasing, finance, joint ventures, restructuring, workouts and litigation. A real estate attorney's role in a real estate transaction is helpful for many reasons and can be as broad as you like. When buying a home, your real estate attorney should prepare all the legal documents, make sure there are no liens against the property, review and help you understand all contracts associated with the purchase, and attend the closing. When selling a home a real estate attorney can be useful when negotiating the transaction, reviewing leases, appraisals, and inspections, preparing the deed, reviewing offers, contracts and agreements and making sure your rights as a seller are protected.
Real estate attorneys are a vital tool, as they have sophisticated experience with many different types of transactions. Real estate attorneys work closely with other attorneys, brokers, agents and developers. One of the major roles of a real estate attorney is to draft and negotiate documents; they prepare leases, deeds, purchase contracts, mortgage loan documents and financing documents. The main benefit of having a real estate attorney involved in a transaction is that the buyer or seller will be protected from financial loss. They can check for errors or clauses that someone without the experience of real estate attorney may overlook. Whether it's buying, selling, leasing, houses, land, or buildings it is important to have a real estate attorney helping facilitate every step of the way. The final goal for a real estate attorney is to make the transaction as smooth and fair as possible for all parties involved. At Michael L. Feinstein, P.A. we take great pride in our work in the real estate practice area, and will continue to protect our clients in any and all real estate transactions by providing the best legal counsel possible.
