Serving New Jersey Residents During Real Estate Transactions

Since founding my law practice nearly a decade ago, I have helped many clients who are involved in residential and commercial real estate transactions protect their rights. I have extensive experience in home purchase and sale transactions and am pleased to assist both purchasers and sellers in a variety of ways, including:

  • Negotiation of contract terms
  • Preparation of closing documents
  • Attendance at closing
  • Thorough explanation of the process from start to finish
  • Explanation of contract terms and conditions
  • Assistance with title insurance
  • Assistance with home inspections
  • Review of inspection reports
  • Other matters critical to the protection of your rights

Retaining a knowledgeable real estate lawyer is critical when you are buying or selling a home because several legal steps must be taken:

  • Sellers must carefully negotiate the terms of the sale and understand their contractual obligations.
  • Purchasers must carefully review the terms of the contract they will sign. They also need time to obtain a home inspection and address issues in the inspector’s report.

Some homes have significant defects that are only discovered through a home inspection. Other key issues, such as title insurance, call for legal advice.

Understanding Your Home Closing

During a home closing, various documents are typically exchanged and signed. Common documents include:

  • The deed, which transfers ownership from the seller to the buyer,
  • The promissory note outlining the terms of the mortgage
  • The mortgage itself securing the loan with the property
  • The closing disclosure detailing the financial aspects of the transaction
  • Affidavits and declarations required by state and local laws.

Additionally, title insurance policies may be issued to protect the buyer and lender from any unforeseen title issues. A knowledgeable real estate lawyer can guide you through this process and ensure all necessary documents are properly handled and understood.

As your attorney, I will work closely with you before and during the closing to help you understand your rights and the terms of your agreement. At all times, you will have a dedicated and knowledgeable attorney working on your behalf to protect your interests.
