Why do I need a real estate attorney?

Buying a home is a very exciting time in a person’s life. It can also be very stressful, especially for first-time homebuyers. One aspect of the real estate process that makes it a little easier is the assistance of a real estate attorney who can walk you through the process. In New Jersey, you actually need a real estate attorney to conduct the three-day attorney review, but they can help with a lot of other things. A three-day attorney review is where your real estate attorney looks at your contract to make sure that you are getting a fair deal when you purchase the house.

Real estate attorneys can also help you work through any other issues that may come up during the process. They will also make sure the property transfer goes smoothly, that the title has no issues, that all of the paperwork is filed correctly, and that the closing goes well.

When you sell your home, you will also need to make sure that you have a real estate attorney as well. Just like purchasing a home, a seller will also need to have an attorney for the three-day attorney review before the contract can be signed. They can advocate on your behalf to make sure the buyers aren’t asking too much of you and that the closing goes well.

If you have questions about the legalities of buying or selling a home in New Jersey, it is important that you consult with an experienced real estate attorney who can provide you with assistance.
