The day you’ve been waiting for has finally come. The house you have been eyeing for years is finally on the market and is within perfect range of your job and your children’s schools. But before you start packing your boxes and planning all the changes you’re going to make to your new house, are you sure that the sale of your current home is secure?
Here are just a few reasons why you should invest in a real estate lawyer when selling your home:
Educates You on the Home Selling Process
Selling your home is a complicated process with many forms, fees, and requirements that can be dizzying for a first-time seller. If you’re looking to understand the whole process and not skip any important steps, a real estate lawyer can educate you on the process from start to finish.
If you plan on purchasing and selling a home again in the future or would like to simply invest in real estate, there is no better resource than talking with an experienced lawyer.
Protects You From Any Legal Action
Suppose you’ve recently sold your home, but it has been an extremely rainy spring. Water has leaked into your basement walls and caused mold to grow. You had no idea this happened but your buyers disagree and are now taking you to court for withholding information.
Rather than being overwhelmed by court proceedings and potential lawsuits, your real estate lawyer will know how to defend your innocence in court and help you move on with peace of mind.
Your State May Require It
Different states have different regulations when it comes to real estate lawyers, but here in Illinois, attorneys are usually very involved in the home sale process and review the home sale agreement before the sale can be finalized.
Having an attorney provides you many benefits in your sale, but if you live in Chicagoland, chances are you can avoid some penalties or fines by having a lawyer by your side.
Whether you’re selling your family home or a commercial space for your business, having a real estate lawyer to help you complete the process quickly and efficiently is essential.
