Your New Home Might Be Your Most Valuable Asset – Don’t Risk Closing Without an Attorney!

Whether you’re just starting to browse the real estate market or have already put an offer on your dream home, you may soon be facing the final steps of completing your home buying process. Although buying a home is an exciting and highly rewarding achievement, it can also be a stressful and confusing process. It's important to secure your investment in your new and possibly your most important asset at all costs.

One of the most important decisions you'll face is whether you want to hire an attorney to represent you in the closing process. Retaining an attorney is always recommended, no matter how straightforward your transaction may seem.

A standard real estate closing involves the drafting and execution of legal documents, inspections, negotiations, and a title search, not to mention the actual closing day. Having an attorney by your side throughout the process ensures that there is someone on your side who will always have your best interest at the forefront of the transaction. Sellers will want to make as much money as possible, agents may want a quick closing with little work, but your attorney will do the heavy lifting to make sure that your interests, needs, and rights are protected and defended. At Lundy Law Practice, we review our buyers' sales contracts meticulously, secure necessary disclosures from the sellers, negotiate price adjustments based on inspection and title reports, and watch out for anything that may be a detriment to our clients after closing.

One of the most vital components of closing is the title search. The attorneys at Lundy Law Practice secure detailed and accurate title searches performed by only qualified and reputable title search companies. We know how to handle any unexpected or complex issues arising from the title search, and this can make the difference between getting to the closing table or having the deal fall apart. Most importantly, in conducting a thorough title search, we prevent the possibility of a third party coming along later with a claim that they own your purchased home.

Having an attorney is likely to reduce your stress in the buying process. Our attorneys becomes your point of contact so you don't have to handle a barrage of phone calls and emails from the seller, their attorney, or their agents. In addition, we are are available to answer your questions and to address your concerns throughout the process.

Buying a home is exciting and rewarding, leading to ownership of an incredibly valuable assets. As a buyer, always look for an attentive, knowledgeable, and experienced attorney to advocate for your best interests and to ensure a seamless transaction!
