Buying your dream home should be a simple process, but more often than not, it can be quite the nightmare. There are several legal pitfalls to home buying that anyone can fall victim to – from poorly structured contracts to potential fraud. The team at Mercer Law can help protect one of the most important investments of your life and ensure that your future home can be yours with no strings attached.

Do I Need a Real Estate Attorney?

For most people, buying a home is the single biggest purchase we will make in our lifetime. Such a monumental investment should be protected. Although an attorney is not required in most states, having one on your side can make the process smoother, avoid misreading contracts, and find solutions to potential disputes. Because when it comes to buying a home, it’s best to avoid risks altogether.

How Can a Real Estate Attorney Help a Homebuyer?

An attorney can help you with a wide range of issues, including dealing with brokers, reviewing contracts or purchase agreements, negotiations, and a mortgage transfer, among others. Other common reasons a buyer might need an attorney include:

  • Purchasing a property in a different state
  • If there is physical damage to the property
  • Illegal additions to the structure of the home

How Can a Real Estate Attorney Help a Seller?

Sellers can also benefit from a real estate attorney, especially if:

  • They have a history of property liens
  • They are short-selling or foreclosing on a home
  • There are structural problems with the property
