Selling a home shouldn’t be hard. However, it’s actually a fairly complex task from a legal standpoint. It’s a multi-step process that includes tasks like:
Initial contract negotiation, where the parties will discuss price, closing date, and other terms.
Gathering information like a title report, mortgage agreement, and other financial contracts.
Closing meeting: both parties sign a deed, mortgage agreement, and other tax forms and sworn statements. All of this paperwork needs to be ready by the closing date originally agreed on in the initial contract. All parties need to have funds necessary to make the purchase at the time of the closing.
When you retain a lawyer, they can take care of every aspect of a real estate closing. They’ll take care of drafting your contract to sell, as well as negotiate any terms before the final sale. It’s important to make sure you retain legal representation early in the selling process. That way, your lawyer will be able to guide you every step of the way. They can also help you avoid expensive mistakes that can force you to restart the entire selling process over from the beginning.
When you’re selling a home, you have certain rights including determining the listing price and what property is included in the sale. However, there are numerous disclosures you need to provide to any prospective buyer. If you don’t, you could be facing costly lawsuits. These disclosures include:
If the property has any hazardous waste present
If there are any issues with the plumbing, electrical, or structural systems of a home
Whether the house has any infestations by rodents or other pests
Homeowners’ association fees
Water and mineral rights (if applicable)
Without an attorney’s help, it’s easy for a seller to overlook this kind of information during a home closing. That’s why it’s so important to retain the help of experienced and competent legal counsel when selling real estate.
