The Top 3 Ways a Lawyer Helps Realtors

Real estate agents offer a wide range of essential services to their clients. We understand that the value realtors and agents provide to their clients is well worth the cost to your clients. Just like a real estate agent offers essential transactional services to their clients, so too can a real estate lawyer help agents ensure the legal aspects of the transaction are done properly.

A real estate lawyer has the experience and training necessary to help with several important steps that need to be completed before a property is bought or sold. The following are some of the most critical things that a qualified attorney can do to help a realtor through this process.

1.   Drafting Documents

A lot of paperwork needs to be completed when a home is bought or sold. Having an attorney draft, review, negotiate, or rewrite many of these legally binding documents will not only save you a lot of time, but it will also ensure they are done properly. Real estate attorneys often help with deeds for conveyance transactions, purchase contracts, financing agreements, lease or rental agreements, and other legally enforceable documents. Don’t leave these documents to a DIY template online! Every situation is unique and therefore merits its own documents and contracts. Online DIY templates could get you and your client in legal trouble later on.

2.   Negotiating

When negotiating a residential real estate deal, there is a lot more to discuss than just the price. An attorney focused on real estate will have the necessary experience to be able to negotiate the best possible deals for you and your clients. This can be helpful with almost any type of real estate transaction, but becomes especially critical on deals that have a high dollar value.

3.   Reviewing Transactions

A real estate attorney can perform the necessary due diligence on a transaction before the buyers or sellers move forward. A real estate agent can have the attorney look at things such as legal title issues, inspection reports, and much more. Having us do this research can help ensure you aren’t recommending a property to a client when there may be serious issues associated with it. It can also protect your clients from running into issues months or years after they have purchased the home or property.
