What is a residential real estate attorney?
A residential real estate attorney handles transactions, litigation, leasing, and landlord/tenant matters for residential properties. Residential real estate attorneys may work with realtors, title companies, and lenders to ensure transactions close smoothly. They should be knowledgeable in all aspects of property law.
Transactions begin with a purchase contract, which should be drafted or review with care and attention to avoid bigger problems down the road. After the contract has been signed, you’ll need to understand your rights and obligations during the inspection period and title review period, including important deadlines for each period. Prior to closing, you may have questions about the closing statement, the title commitment, and the closing process. We can walk you through each stage of a transaction, and we can even close the entire transaction. However, we often work with real estate agents and title companies to ensure that the transaction goes smoothly.
Title problems often arise before closing, when the title work comes back from the closing company. To finalize the transaction, you may need to clean up title problems using a quitclaim deed, quiet title action, probate, or other curative title work. We routinely handle curative title work to facilitate closings, and we can help you keep the transaction alive in the meantime.
Disputes & Non-Disclosure
Residential transaction disputes can arise for a variety of reasons, including breach of contract or non-disclosure of property defects. A residential real estate attorney from our firm can advise on your rights and obligations, and if necessary, handle litigation on your behalf.
