How We Help Buyers

  • We coordinate all aspects of their purchase with the seller, their lender, and their realtors to ensure that everything’s taken care of when they arrive to purchase the property.
  • We review the title report to ensure there are no issues with the title report that could negatively affect the purchaser buying the property.
  • We help buyers obtain title insurance, ensuring that they're fully covered if something pops up in the future.

How We Help Sellers

  • We coordinate all the aspects of the sale, so there’s very little that the seller has to do or worry about. This includes contacting their lender to order a payoff or mortgage, working with the real estate agents to ensure that everything is aligned for the day of the closing, and ensuring that buyers are performing on their side.
  • If issues arise where there might be a disagreement or a misunderstanding between the parties, we can help mediate conflicts and find a way forward. We take out all the guesswork, so both parties are satisfied, and we can move forward with the sale.

Why Hire a Real Estate Attorney, Rather Than a Title Company?

More often than not, title companies come to us for advice and guidance since we have the knowledge and understanding to make things happen. Cutting out the middleman saves you time and money.

Title companies are never allowed to give legal advice to their clients. Attorneys, however, can and do advise their clients on the legalities of their transaction or their contract. This advice can often help work them through issues that might arise between the different parties.

I Already Have a Real Estate Agent. Do I Still Need an Attorney?

Real Estate Agents are important parts of the buying or selling process. However, agents are the face of the property being sold, NOT the legalities behind it. Some common responsibilities of agents include:

  • Assessing and recommending mortgage financing options in order to assist clients in making the best home-buying decision
  • Collaborating with other realtors in order to facilitate the faster sale of homes
  • Directing interested home buyers to properties listed for sale
  • Advising home sellers on an appropriate listing price for their property
  • Working with property sellers to make their properties appealing to buyers
  • Hosting open houses
  • Promoting property on real estate platforms
  • Overseeing the closing between the seller and the buyer
  • Observing the code of ethics outlined in association bylaw
  • Preparing property for viewing by possible buyers

Some important things a Real Estate Attorney can provide you are:

  • Advising clients on relevant real estate laws
  • Drafting purchase agreements, title documents, and mortgage contracts
  • Assisting buyers and sellers in closing deals
  • Mediating disagreements arising from the transfer of property
  • Representing clients in court in real estate matters
  • Assisting landlords in rental applications and lease agreements
  • Representing tenants (both commercial and residential) in disputes with landlords
  • Assisting clients in dealing with foreclosure, bankruptcy, and short sales
