I Can Buy a House and I Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Lawyer:
Why You Are Wrong!
Corene C. Ford
You’ve decided to buy a new home. First, Congratulations! Second, have you hired a real estate attorney to review your purchase agreement, mortgage documentation, and title policy? If not, you may be in for trouble down the road.
Buying a home involves more than you think. It is very important to have your documents reviewed by an attorney BEFORE you sign them. This is especially true since the real estate bubble burst. Mortgage companies couldn’t keep up with the number of foreclosures and many of them were done in a careless and sloppy manner that can affect clear title to property. If you purchase a property with title errors, you could be setting yourself up for an expensive quiet title action to correct the errors. However, for the fraction of the price a lawsuit, a review of the closing documents could save you money and tons of aggravation.
Buying a home is one of life’s largest investments. For a reasonable flat fee, I can review your purchase agreement, appraisal, and closing documents, as well as perform a title search to check for errors. For more information, please contact me.
