If you’re planning to purchase a home in Connecticut or Massachusetts, or if you want to acquire an investment property or other piece of commercial real estate, you may think that simply hiring an experienced real estate agent is enough.

However, if you don’t consult with a lawyer who practices commercial or residential real estate law, you could end up with a legal nightmare when it comes to property ownership. Garvey Law helps commercial and private clients complete closings and navigate other legal aspects of the real estate transaction process.

Real Estate Lawyers

Real estate attorneys represent clients in real estate transactions in numerous ways, including negotiating terms, drafting contracts, and conducting title searches to ensure that each transaction is clean; that is, that the seller can legally transfer the property freely and clearly to the buyer.

As your advocate in negotiations, your real estate attorney can ensure that any transaction you enter has terms that favor your interests, not just those of a real estate agent.

Real estate lawyers also review any contracts and other legal documents before you sign, ensuring that each one is fair and will not impact your sales or purchase goals.

The purchase agreement is the most important component of any real estate transaction. Obtaining legal advice before reviewing a presented agreement or consulting with a lawyer to draft yours can protect you from expensive and messy legal issues.
