Buying a New Home? Find Out Why You Should Hire a Real Estate Attorney.

You spent weeks looking in the Riverpoint neighborhood in Norfolk for the perfect home and you finally found it—a two-story colonial with a pool located on Talbot Hall Road. You and your family are very excited, but the whole thing is stressful too, since this is the largest purchase you have ever made.

Because it is such an important and complex important transaction, it makes sense to hire an experienced real estate attorney to ensure that everything goes smoothly. A real estate can help with all aspects of a home purchase and provide some real benefits including the following:

  • Negotiation assistance – The home seller is going to try to obtain the highest possible price, which may be above market value. An experienced real estate attorney can help you to negotiate a fair price for the house.
  • Document review – There are many documents to review during the home-purchase process. These documents can be confusing and full of legal jargon. A strong real-estate lawyer can review these documents for you to ensure that your interests are protected
  • Completion of inspections – There are a number of surveys and inspections that must be completed before the sale of the property can be finalized. A real estate lawyer can coordinate them to ensure they are completed properly and on time.
  • Loan document review – Loans can be complicated and have hidden terms that can surprise a buyer down the road. An attorney will be able to review these documents to ensure that the terms of the loan are fair.
