If you’re a first-time home buyer, you’re probably learning how complicated and time-consuming the purchase of real estate can be. Because it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, it’s often beneficial to have a Schaumburg real estate attorney walk you through the process.

Real Estate Law in Schaumburg

Whether you're buying or selling residential property, our legal team can help with specific advice for both parties:  

For Buyers 

Buying a home is often one of the largest and most complicated purchases anyone will make during their life.

There are many facets involved when purchasing a home or any piece of real estate, and having an attorney present during the process makes it easier to understand contracts and legal obligations. A real estate lawyer acts as a mediator between you and the realtor to ensure you are treated fairly and aren’t taken advantage of.

Another main benefit of having an attorney present when buying a home is safety, especially if you will live in the home with your family. 

An attorney can help look over the property and make sure it is safe and that any previous modifications made were made lawfully. They can also look into the house's history to ensure there weren’t any cases of termites, asbestos, or other hazards that a seller may be hiding or omitting.

For Sellers  

Selling property can be even more complicated than buying it. Many buyers demand a lot from a seller, and an attorney can help you write and revise contracts that will be fair for both you and the buyer. 

It is also essential to have an attorney with you to protect your rights when a buyer reviews and signs a contract involving your property. Especially in competitive markets, such as those in Illinois, you want to make sure you’re always getting a fair deal.
