Many buyers and sellers of residential real estate are reluctant to hire an attorney, choosing instead to rely on form contracts and inexperienced title companies, due primarily to the misconception that a real estate attorney costs too much money or will complicate the process. Believing these misconceptions can cost you precious time and money. It is important to remember that the purchase or sale of your home is one of the most important financial transactions in your life. No two real estate closings are the same, and there are no “standard” contracts.
Negotiating and preparing real estate contracts requires a deep understanding of contract and real estate law to ensure that the final contract will be upheld and your interests will be protected. Along with assisting you in the process of selecting one of Florida’s “standard real estate contracts”, an attorney from Heekin Law will customize the form to meet any particular needs as well as provide counsel to ensure the your best interests are met.
Only an attorney can effectively advise a party on matters relating to the title and answer legal questions that often arise during the closing process. In addition, retaining the services of a real estate attorney to represent you and handle your closing often costs no more than (and sometimes less than) a title company closing.
