Residential Sales Attorney
You have probably heard it a thousand times, “the purchase of your home is one of the biggest investments you will ever make.” This is a very true statement and because the purchase of your home will be one of your biggest investments, you want to be well informed and make good decisions from the time you start the process all the way through closing.
Some people are told that in Florida, you do not need an attorney involved in your real estate purchase or at your real estate closing. While a real estate attorney is not required it is highly recommended. There are many things that a real estate attorney can do that a real estate agent or a title company cannot do. Title companies cannot cure defects in title and they may not be able to understand and explain the tax consequences of your transaction. Many residential real estate contracts are form documents; the same form is used in every transaction. While there are certainly similarities between different residential real estate transactions, no two sales are exactly the same. A real estate attorney will go through your mortgage documents and real estate contract with a fine toothed comb and will be able to explain any existing or potential issues with you. Having a real estate attorney that can competently and diligently deal with any legal issues that may arise is extremely important. It is difficult to predict what will happen in a residential real estate transaction so having someone with experience in your corner can make a world of difference. Title companies can be helpful, but they are not advocating for you. A real estate attorney will advocate for you, no one else.
