Barrington – Why is it critical to work with an attorney when buying or selling a home? “Buying a home will most likely be the largest and most significant purchase you will make in your life. It also involves the law of real property, which is unique and raises special issues of practice, and problems not present in other transactions. A real estate lawyer is trained to deal with these problems and has the most experience to deal with them. A real estate attorney will help you protect and guard your purchase.” 

Steven Nicholas, Real Estate Attorney, for Piercey and Associates. By having an established, trusted and highly accomplished attorney with over 35 years of real estate law experience like Steve, you will be assured that your closing is in good hands. Steve has a thorough knowledge of all aspects of the mortgage industry including sales, foreclosures and short sales.

How can a real-estate attorney can help you with a closing? 

Contracts are often filled with vague and unclear terms. For example, a seller may sign a brokerage agreement that does not deal with a number of legal problems. This happens quite often; realtors often use standard forms, expecting that they will cover all circumstances or will be easily customizable for unusual circumstances. A real-estate attorney like Steve will assure that you are understanding and agreeing to the correct terms 

The purchase agreement is the single most important document in the transaction. Although standard printed forms are useful, a lawyer like Steve will explain the form and make necessary changes and additions to reflect the buyer’s and the seller’s desires. 

After the purchase agreement is signed, Steve negotiates all matters of attorney’s review and home inspections. Once an agreement is reached, Steve prepares all of the legal documents and figures for the seller. If Steve represents the purchaser, he attends the closing and when a lender is involved, reviews all loan documents to assure they are correct.
