Answering your questions about buying/selling residential real estate
The process of buying and selling a home consists of multiple steps that can take weeks, even months, to complete. This pamphlet can’t begin to cover all aspects of home buying or selling. Rather, it focuses on specific stages in the process when a lawyer’s advice would be helpful, even crucial, to get the best results for you.
By law, only an attorney can provide you legal advice – not a real estate agent, loan officer, or closing agent. Whether you’re a buyer or seller, you need your own legal advisor who will look out for your interests. Because the buyer’s and seller’s interests differ, it’s not a good idea for both parties to use the same attorney.
