Who Needs a Real Estate Lawyer?
As they attempt to understand real estate proceedings and transactions, many people find themselves feeling overwhelmed by the process. Additionally, some make the assumption that only large corporations can benefit from and/or afford to hire a real estate lawyer. In truth, both individuals and businesses may need qualified legal representation to help protect their best interests and ensure that contracts, tax filings, and other legalities proceed smoothly and efficiently.
Benefits of Hiring a Real Estate Lawyer
Understand Contracts and Legal Paperwork
Real estate contracts, as well as purchase and sale agreements, are often very complex and contain terminology that a layperson may not fully understand. Additionally, there are often time constraints related to the signing and execution of these documents, and there are times when key points of a real estate contract must be negotiated. Not only can a real estate lawyer negotiate on your behalf, but they can help you review the paperwork to ensure there is nothing concerning in the fine print.
Adhere to Property Transfer Laws
Often times, real estate transactions for businesses can be very complex. Property transfers between corporations, trusts, and partnerships require special attention. Contracts must be prepared promptly, properly, and within the boundaries of Georgia law. A real estate lawyer can help ensure that contract preparation and negotiations go smoothly, and ensure that charter agreements are not violated.
Address Liens and Proper Legal Filing
Finally, when you are preparing to purchase property, it is imperative to make sure that there are no liens or judgments against the property. A real estate lawyer can perform a title search on behalf of individuals and corporations to ensure that the property they are interested in is free of any encumbrances. Additionally, when it comes time for filing the deed with the county and state, a real estate attorney has the skills and tools to do so quickly and efficiently.
