What is the Attorney’s Role During a Real Estate Transaction?
As an attorney, my role is to protect my client, whether it’s a buyer, and there are certain considerations on that regard, or a seller and the considerations that a seller has in a real estate transaction. For a buyer, I want to make sure they are protected in the contract in terms of what the seller is representing to them about the house, a co-op unit, or condo unit, for example. I will make sure they can obtain their mortgage and help them with that. It is not necessarily legal advice, but practical advice that, over the years, I have developed. I know buyers have questions about and I can help them with, dealing with real estate agents who call constantly and want to know the progress of the deal. Representing a seller is very similar in that they have certain concerns. For example, they might want to know that the buyer is moving along in the process and obtaining a mortgage commitment, In any event, my role is to answer questions, guide the process along, and bring it to a happy closing where all parties are shaking hands and leaving with what they wanted to do.
