Residential Real Estate Law
If you are preparing to buy or sell a home in New Jersey, it is important for you to understand the legal implications involved. While banks, mortgage lenders, and title companies often present their contracts as “form” agreements, these contracts are often heavily one-sided, and negotiating the terms – or at least understanding the terms before you sign – is crucial in making informed decisions.
Too often, home buyers and sellers simply agree to sign on the dotted line, and in doing so they assume responsibility for costs, fees, and liabilities that could have been avoided.
Residential Real Estate Purchases and Sales
When buying or selling a home, it is important to get an attorney involved early in the process. While there may be a “closing attorney” assigned to your transaction by the lender, his or her role is not to advise you regarding your best interests. Even highly-experienced buyers and sellers will benefit from engaging an attorney to represent them; for first-time homebuyers, hiring a lawyer can give you the peace of mind you need to settle into your new home.
