Residential Transactions: 3 Ways A Lawyer Can Help

Buying or selling a house is likely among the most significant transactions you will make in your lifetime. When you have built many treasured memories in your home, you want to ensure that you sell it to a trusted buyer at a worthy price. As a buyer, you want to make sure that you are investing your money in a property where you, too, can see yourself building meaningful experiences.

When you are closing such a major deal, it is important to have an experienced real estate attorney by your side who knows how to review your paperwork thoroughly and who can help you negotiate for the best possible deal.

At Hobika Law Firm, we have more than 50 years of combined experience handling real estate transactions throughout the Utica-Rome area. Here are three ways you benefit from having legal guidance:

1. Feeling confident about the results of your title search

If you are buying a house, conducting a title search is an essential step in closing your deal. Now that the property is set to be transferred into your ownership, it is crucial to make sure that there are no overlooked defects or liens. A real estate attorney is trained to identify these issues, and many more. The lawyers at Hobika Law Firm know how to conduct a thorough title search that ensures your confidence in making your transaction.

2. Avoiding or reducing unnecessary costs

When you sell your house through a broker, you need to be careful about the terms of the broker agreement. What happens, for example, in the event that the house does not get sold? An attorney can help you review your broker agreement with a detail-oriented approach so that you can avoid agreeing to unclear terms.

3. Being satisfied with your purchase agreement

Whether you are a buyer or seller, the purchase agreement deserves significant attention. What is stated there should be in line with your interests. Matters such as inspections and disclosures should be clearly communicated so that disputes can be avoided down the road.
