If you've been arrested for a crime you didn't commit, you need to defend your legal rights. You have the right to an attorney who can help you present your case. After being wrongly accused of something myself, I learned quickly how to navigate the legal avenues to have my case dismissed. My attorney was a great resource for building the case, and because of my understanding of the law, it worked. I created this site to share what I learned along the way and some other great tips for others who have been wrongly accused and arrested for a crime.
Whether you are buying your first home or your 10th piece of property, there are a variety of different reasons why you might want to consider professional legal help. A real estate attorney who knows their stuff can prevent you from making a mistake or help you navigate through waters you've never been through before. Here are some of the different reasons why hiring a real estate attorney before your next transaction is a good idea.
A Real Estate Deal Involves a Contractual Agreement
If this is your first home or your first time as a seller, you might go to the close not fully understanding all of the legalese in the contractual agreement. It's important to remember that whether you are the buyer or the seller, a real estate deal often involves a lot of contract law. If this is not your area of expertise, you need someone who can read through the details and make sure everything is on the up and up.
A Real Estate Attorney Can Act on Your Behalf in a Different Town or City
Are you interested in expanding your real estate portfolio to another city? Perhaps you want to start looking for housing in a new city, but you are not ready to actually go there yet? Hiring a real estate lawyer can help you in both of these scenarios. A real estate attorney is authorized to act on your behalf. They can help you close the deal on your new house, building, or land even if you're not physically there. If you are buying real estate in a different city or state, hiring a lawyer is a good idea anyway because they might be aware of local laws or regulations that don't apply in your current location, and they can make sure you stay on the right side of the law.
The Seller Has Issues That Need to Be Resolved
You might think you've found your dream home and are ready to make an offer, but then you may find out that the seller has a lien against the house or some other kind of title issue. In this scenario, you absolutely need a lawyer to help you investigate what's going on. You need to make sure the seller has the right to sell the property to you and that you won't get left holding the bag because of issues that the seller never took care of.
