For many people, buying a home is the largest financial transaction they’ll ever make. So it’s important that you retain an experienced residential real estate attorney to ensure that this big event goes smoothly. At New York’s Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP, our residential real estate lawyers can help you avoid pitfalls that could cost you thousands of dollars. Our attorneys will review the mortgage agreements, sales contract and other legal documents, and will guide you through property tax, insurance and escrow issues.
Reviewing the documents required for home sales
There are several key documents related to buying and selling a home that should be reviewed by an experienced real estate attorney, including:
- Property condition disclosure. Under state law, sellers are required to disclose all known problems with the property. This could include anything from a leaky roof to a sinking foundation.
- Purchase agreement. This is the document that specifies the price, down payment, closing date and other important elements of the transaction. Your lawyer can modify the agreement to reflect your best interests.
- Title search. A title search unearths the history of the legal ownership of the house. It reveals liens or other claims that might cloud your title to the property.
