Representing Buyers

Gavel being used on toy house | Lawyer Schaumburg ILPurchasing a home is likely the largest investment you will ever make. Having an experienced attorney on your side means having someone trustworthy to explain the legal terms of the contract. Most homebuyers benefit from having an attorney on their side to ensure that the contracts and agreements are consistent with what you discussed with your mortgage lender, the seller, and your real estate agent.

People without an attorney at their closing appointment run the risk of signing on the dotted line without being fully aware of the legal obligations of the purchase. For buyers, we will review the contract, suggest any changes, and assist in meeting the required deadlines of the purchase. We can offer help in scheduling a home inspection and getting the proper mortgage commitment, as well as oversee the transaction through closing.

Real Estate Law for Sellers Building a Home

Otherwise, mistakes will cost you time and money, especially if you have to find a new buyer. When representing the seller in a real estate transaction, we review the contract and suggest any necessary changes. We assist in obtaining the title for your property and oversee its transfer upon completion of the sale.

Commercial Real Estate Law

We represent both buyers and sellers in commercial real estate transactions. We review contracts, zoning laws, and can help you schedule an inspection of the property, if necessary.

Many lenders require an attorney for closing on commercial real estate property to protect the rights and interests of each party.
