Real Estate Law - Residential
We provide expert services for purchase and sale of real estate, and transfer of such property, such as a consequence of divorce. It should be kept in mind that a real estate agent, even a very good one, is primarily loyal to the seller, since that’s who pays the agent’s fee. You want someone who will stand by your side and is only interested in one thing – getting you the best, legally sound result while protecting your rights while also concerned about future problems that might arise, and not someone who is concerned to close the deal and move on to the next sale. Our team is here to assist you in home purchasing, selling, negotiations, closings, and all other real estate transactions.
Purchase and sale of a home is one of the most expensive things the average person gets involved in in their entire life, usually hundreds of thousands of dollars, or more, after factoring in the cost of financing, and, though most closings go smoothly, when things go wrong, the financial and other consequences can be emotionally straining at least, and potentially financially devastating. Because of that the relatively small additional cost to have an experienced lawyer by your side is wise, even if only to make sure the terms of the deal are being properly written and so many side concerns, from rights in case of needed repairs, termite, radon, building and other inspections and zoning, to title issues and environmental concerns. There are also many differences in how sales may proceed in counties as different as Montgomery and Bucks or local ordinances affecting everything from inspection and occupancy permits in cities like Philadelphia and townships such as Southampton. For all that, the relatively small cost to have your lawyer guide and give you peace of mind from the beginning and/or only the closing is a very smart thing to do.
