Selling your home?
Stern Law will review with you all the information you need for a contract of sale.
A real estate contract of sale has many contingencies you need to fully understand. Can the purchaser obtain a mortgage? Are there problems (such as termites) that need to be dealt with prior to the sale? Is the title free of defects or liens? In other words, is it a good marketable title?
Before you enter into a contract, make sure you understand all your obligations. Your attorney can explain your responsibilities regarding the home’s condition, closing costs, and taxes. By having an experienced real estate lawyer, you can be aware of how to protect yourself against future liability.
Buying a home?
Buying a home is likely the biggest and most complex transaction you will ever make. Though most home sales work out well, some do not and result in costly disputes.
An experienced real estate attorney can guide you through the purchase process and help you avoid problems. Have your attorney review all documents before you sign.
When you sign a contract of sale, make sure the contract includes all aspects of the purchase: the sale price, deposit amount, repair requirements, and needed contingency clauses (mortgage contingency, home inspection contingency, sale-of-other-home contingency), and all items included in the sale. Your lawyer can also check the home’s title and make sure you have title insurance.
