Transactions involving residential real estate are often the largest purchases and sales most people will make in their lives. There are numerous laws in place on how transactions should be handled. In addition, the numerous contracts and documents involved in the process should be carefully handled. Carelessness with these documents can land sellers and buyers in legal entanglements that are not easily resolved.

Hart & David provides the real estate and law expertise needed to prepare for real estate transactions and see them through successfully. Whether you are buying a home or selling one, we will help you with the legal aspects of the process to ensure a secure transaction.

For Buyers

There are many elements to consider when purchasing a home, including the state of the property, its compliance with zoning and land use laws, and the paperwork that accompanies every stage of the buying process. Our lawyers can assist you with every aspect of purchasing your dream home, from document analysis to negotiating transactions.

Given the complexity of the various documents involved in the process, you will need the assistance of an experienced real estate lawyer. Only a trained eye can catch the small errors and inconsistencies that may appear in real estate related documents and contracts, and missing those errors can land you in some serious legal complications. Prior to making any agreements with sellers, be sure to have a lawyer review the following documents:

  • The deed
  • Description of property
  • Mortgage loan documents
  • Bill of sale
  • Title insurance documents
  • Any other document you may be asked to sign

Reviewing these documents is key to protecting you from prematurely committing to a purchase. It can also head off conflicts with zoning laws if there is something amiss with the property. Hart & David can help you avoid the pitfalls involved in purchasing a home.

For Sellers

To avoid lawsuits due to misrepresentation of the property, zoning law conflicts, or other issues, you need to be sure your home and its documentation are all in proper order prior to selling. Everything needs to be consistent and handled within the limits of the law. Otherwise, you may end up in a costly legal entanglement.
