Legal Advice Is Important When Buying or Selling a Home

Real estate attorneys recommended in New Jersey

It has been said that other than getting married and having children, buying a home is the most important decision of your life.

Different areas of New Jersey have different customs as far as real estate transactions are concerned. Generally speaking, in most of Central and Northern New Jersey, buyers and sellers of real estate take advantage of the three-day “attorney review” period, which begins once the contract is signed. All Real Estate contracts in New Jersey, if written by a non-lawyer (real estate agent, seller, etc.) are required to have the “attorney review” language included in the contract.

It is best to secure an attorney before you begin looking for a home, so that your realtor knows where to send the contract once it’s signed, and the “attorney review” period can be started and concluded quickly. During the attorney review period, the attorney will be able to amend the contract to remove overly-harsh terms that are usually present in form contracts, as well as being able to tailor the contract to the particular needs of the buyer or seller, such as: contingencies for mortgages, inspections, or the sale or purchase of another home, underground oil tanks, and other issues that can range from lender requirements to short sales.

In addition to my legal expertise, I have created an exceptional team of professionals, including a surveyor, a title company, and inspectors, whom I work with frequently. I have the utmost confidence in their professionalism and abilities in protecting your interests in purchasing a home.

I will be intimately involved with your file, and know all of the details. I handle everything myself.  I do not hand you off to a paralegal and only show up to closing. I will represent your interests to ensure that you are protected and confident throughout the entire process.

Having both purchased and sold homes, I know what it is like to be the buyer and seller. As your attorney, I will work diligently to provide you with the best guidance and legal advice as you navigate this most important decision.

If you are thinking of purchasing or selling a home, please telephone me at (732) 444-6406 or write me an email and tell me you’d like to meet about real estate sale.
