There is a reason why the State of Connecticut requires the involvement of a qualified real estate lawyer in any residential home sale – few transactions are more complicated. Whether you want to sell your personal house or an investment property, the process of selling any residence is intricate and filled with possible pitfalls. Offers that seem legitimate sometimes wither, potential buyers can pull their bid at the last minute, and closings occasionally go horribly awry.
For a financial matter of this magnitude, you want a skilled real estate law attorney who can protect your interests. With more than three decades of serving Connecticut home buyers and sellers, the Law Offices of Peter V. Lathouris, LLC are prepared to help you save time and money and prevent disputes that often arise when homeowners do not secure experienced legal representation. While a real estate agent can be helpful, their goal is the sale of your property and the commission attached to it. When you enlist the help of our dedicated legal team, you get an accomplished contract drafting and review lawyer whose mission is to protect you and your financial future.
What Does a Real Estate Attorney Do?
While housing industry experts say hiring a real estate lawyer is important for any sale, an attorney's services are especially valuable if:
- The property you intend to sell is in some state of disrepair or there are significant environmental issues.
- You are selling a property that belonged to a homeowner who has died, in accordance with their last will and testament.
- There is a lien or judgment on the property.
- Your instinct tells you something may go wrong with the transaction, based on your knowledge of the property.
