How to Choose

A Real Estate lawyer

The cost of a real estate lawyer is considered reasonable. It varies depending on if you’re buying or selling and the complexity of the transaction.

When it comes to real estate, the documents are complex and the financial risks are large. A real estate lawyer looks out for your best interests by ensuring you are protected from adverse conditions that can happen with properties. Letting you sleep peacefully knowing your lawyer is looking out for you.

No. You need to have a Real Estate Lawyer to register the deed that is received from the seller, at a minimum.

It is difficult to choose a real estate law firm or real estate lawyer. We recommend looking at Google reviews on the law firms that you find and reading up on the bios of each lawyer. A law firm that has overall positive reviews, and is actively working to help their customers is what you should look for.

You will need a real estate lawyer to review the conditions and facilitate purchasing or selling a house. Your mortgage is between you and your bank or mortgage broker. However, our lawyers would be happy to review any mortgage contracts if you are concerned.
