Three Reasons to Hire a Real Restate Lawyer

For many Americans, homeownership is a dream that may seem far off and unattainable. However, with the changing real estate market and assistance options available for finding an affordable home, it’s a dream that can easily become a reality. Buying your first home is a major milestone that can be equally exciting and overwhelming. Navigating the world of real estate law in Coral Springs as a first-time homebuyer is confusing and may lead to sticky legal and financial situations if one isn’t careful. Thankfully, the team at Benson, Mucci & Weiss are experienced in all areas of real estate law.   

Here are just three benefits of hiring a commercial or residential real estate lawyer in Coral Springs.  

Contract Review and Negotiation  

Purchasing a property is a major legal and financial transition between two or more parties. At Benson, Mucci & Weiss, our Coral Springs real estate lawyers have decades of combined experience in real estate law. We help ensure your contracts are clear, binding and your investment is protected. We use our expertise to review your contracts line by line, identifying any loopholes or unclear phrasing to ensure your rights are protected.   

We can answer all of your contract-related questions and help guide you in negotiating the best terms for your transaction. This includes holding the current owner liable for any pressing liens or necessary repairs and more. Should you choose an ‘as-is’ sale, we can help you and your real estate agent negotiate a fair price based on the anticipated expenses of said deal.   

The most important stage for consulting a commercial or residential real estate lawyer in Coral Springs is during the closing process. Because this is the final step to purchasing a property, it is vital to ensure your contracts are in the proper order to prevent later complications. Having an experienced real estate attorney is crucial throughout this process and makes closing the sale easier  

Legal Compliance  

Most first-time homebuyers have no idea what a title search is, let alone why they need one. In the simplest terms, a title search ensures no other parties have a claim on your future property. This includes existing loans or liens against the home, other members listed on the current deed, and tax records to ensure everything is within legal compliance. Our real estate lawyers walk you through your title search process and we advise you throughout this process to ensure all concerning issues are met with knowledgeable and effective solutions.  

Legal compliance can also mean things like assessing zoning ordinances and ensuring you have the proper paperwork filed with the city before any construction begins, should you choose to renovate or expand a property. These are just a few legal issues that are best left to real estate lawyers to ensure transactions are handled properly.  

Expedition  

Trying to purchase a home on your own can be a long, drawn-out process. Realtors and sellers are much more likely to take you seriously and focus on closing your transaction with a commercial or residential real estate lawyer in Coral Springs at your side. Additionally, the legal professionals at Benson, Mucci, & Weiss are available to assist with expedited notarization and filing of documents associated with closing your sale.
