A real estate agent can help you find the right home, but legal counsel is recommended.


Frequently, when purchasing a home, people believe they do not need an attorney. However, there are a number of ways an attorney can assist you, whether you are just getting started with the process, or you have already had an offer accepted. Some of the ways an attorney can be helpful include:

  • Reviewing purchase and sale agreements – purchase contracts may seem like pretty standard fare, but they often contain clauses that may have a financial impact. For example, it is important to know that you may forfeit your deposit if you decide to not go forward with the purchase.

  • Reviewing inspection reports – an inspection report that comes back with any type of issue may allow you some new negotiating room with the seller. We are happy to review all reports and help you resolve any issues.

  • Necessary correspondence – some buyers are not prepared for the amount of correspondence that will occur between themselves, the seller’s attorney, the lending institution and the title company. We can help make sense out of this correspondence so you do not feel so overwhelmed.

  • Document review – we are more than happy to review mortgage commitments, survey documents, as well as title insurance commitments.

  • Closing representative – we are happy to serve as your representative at the closing of the real estate transaction.
