At Farley & Bernathy LLC, our Lake Wallenpaupack real estate attorneys
are skilled at seeing problems on the horizon and coming up with creative resolutions for solving them. Before undertaking a real estate transaction, you should meet with an attorney to come up with a game plan.
For many people, their home will be their largest asset. For this reason, it is absolutely essential to double check everything before you sign on the deed. Many people are also selling their current home before they can buy a new one, and these timing difficulties can create a host of problems. Many people try to do their own closing to save money. Unfortunately, the reality is that many things can go wrong:
- Problems with title
- A low appraisal
- Uncovered problems with the property identified during an inspection
You need an experienced Lake Wallenpaupack real estate attorney to help you navigate a favorable resolution to these problems. For example, you might request that the homeowner fix any problems before going through with closing, or you can request a credit at closing. Alternately, you might want to not go through with the purchase of the home.
Remember, once you sign to buy a home, it is very difficult to file a lawsuit and force the seller to take the home back. For this reason, you need to plan for all contingencies and protect your rights before you hand over a check for the purchase price.
People who are selling a home have already gone through the home buying process and might feel more comfortable with closing. However, different problems arise as a seller. For example, some buyers back out before going through with closing, which can leave you high and dry without a buyer. To prevent this, sellers should streamline the closing process as much as process so that they can close on the transaction in a timely manner.
Another problem occurs when a buyer is not approved for a mortgage and you did not have sufficient contingencies in legal documents to protect yourself. At our firm, we can help you work through these issues. All you have to do is call.
Real estate is subject to numerous regulations, including zoning. The application process for receiving approval can be burdensome, and few developers want to deal with it. Our firm can help take this burden off your back, allowing you to focus on what you do best—developing great properties that people want to purchase.
