Most first time home buyers know how complicated and overwhelming the purchase of real estate can be, which is why it may be beneficial to have an attorney walk you through the process. Even if you have plenty of experience in real estate, each purchase and sale is different and can have different legal obligations. Robert M. Kaplan is experienced in real estate law and can assist you in staying informed during the process of buying or selling your real estate.

Real Estate Law in Schaumburg


Buying a home is often one of the largest and most complicated purchases anyone will make during their life. There are many facets involved in the process of purchasing a home, or any real estate, and there are many benefits of having an attorney present during the process, including making it easier to understand contracts and legal obligations. They will be able to be a mediator between you and the realtor to make sure you are being treated fairly and aren’t being taken advantage of.

Another main benefit of having an attorney present when buying a home is safety, especially when you are going to be living in a home with your family. An attorney can help look over the property and make sure that it is safe and that any modifications done were done lawfully. They can also look into the history of the house to ensure there weren’t any cases of termites, asbestos, or other hazards that a seller may be hiding or omitting.


Selling of property can be even more complicated than buying. 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 important to have an attorney with you when a buyer reviews and signs a contract to protect your rights.
