About real estate cases

Real estate transactions are full of pitfalls and traps for those who do not practice in these areas frequently. Real estate transactions should always be in writing, and one small error in the drafting or interpretation of a real estate contract or document can have catastrophic consequences. Typically real estate is the largest asset owned by individuals and businesses, and thus becomes a crucial asset to safeguard. It is virtually always cheaper for an attorney to keep you out of harm’s way by being involved in the process throughout than it is for the attorney to be called in after mistakes have been made by someone with good intentions.


Why is a real estate attorney a good idea?

Even the most basic of real estate documents can be drafted so as to benefit the Buyer over the Seller; the landlord over the tenant; the bank over the borrower, etc. Many years and many lawyers have led to the sophistication of legal documents related to real estate. This and the high value of land, homes and buildings make a real estate investment one worth protecting.
