Giammona Law, LLC today at (973) 737-1637 or contact us online to request our services.
The Role of an Attorney During Closing
When you buy or sell a property, a real estate agent will prepare a binding contract for buyer and seller to sign. At this time, both parties are entitled to retain counsel to review the document, someone who will ensure their interests are protected after the document is signed, or propose modifications to the contract. This process, a form of protection afforded to people who buy and sell the property, is called an attorney review. Maria A. Giammona Law, LLC is adept at ensuring her clients’ requirements are met through the transaction.
In addition to the closing document, it is also useful to seek a professional attorney review of other documents relevant to a real estate transaction to verify your interests are protected, and to guide you through each step from the legal perspective. For example:
- Buyers and sellers can seek review of the title and surveys to identify issues that may lower or raise the value of the property and/or adversely affect ownership of the property when signed.
- Buyers can seek review of necessary closing documents, including the deed, affidavit of title, and HUD-1 documents for verification purposes.
