For most, buying a family home is one of the most significant purchases of their lives. Purchasing property is a huge investment, but it can also be incredibly complex for first-time buyers and sellers. Hiring a real estate attorney can help you avoid some of the common problems associated with buying or selling a home. Keep reading to learn more about how our Naugatuck real estate lawyer can help you avoid the most common pitfalls of real estate.
Lawyers Can Do What Your Agent Can’t
When you hire a Connecticut real estate attorney, you are hiring someone who is well-versed the practice areas most associated with buying and selling a property. As lawyers, we know just what to investigate, where to look and how to draw up legally correct contracts designed to fit your needs. Often your real estate agent is working off a template or ready-made contracts, and certain aspects of your transaction can slip through the cracks.
A good real estate attorney could help you do a thorough search on any existing liens on the property your real estate agent may have missed. For example, if you decide to purchase a house without an attorney, and your real estate agents misses a preexisting tax lien on the property, you could buy the home and now be responsible for paying the lien.
In addition to extensive investigations prior to purchasing your home, a real estate attorney can also help with property transfers and filings. The law requires real estate deeds to be filed at the county and state level. If your property transaction involves areas that are regulated or zoned to prohibit certain types of construction, the filing process can be extremely complicated. An experienced Connecticut real estate attorney can navigate through this process quickly and efficiently.
