A Realtor vs. Real Estate Lawyer
Oftentimes the first question potential clients ask is why they need a real estate lawyer if they are already working with an experienced realtor or real estate broker. The answer is both practical and ethical. Realtors are not trained in the law and therefore are not qualified to dispense legal advice when it comes to real estate legal matters. Furthermore, the realtor collects a commission on each sale they facilitate, therefore they cannot be an unbiased party. The opportunity and motive to push a transaction forward, despite problems, must be considered and mitigated. Only a capable real estate law attorney can give you the true legal advice you deserve.
Common Real Estate Law Issues
Whether unforeseen or intentional, there are many common real estate law issues that can arise throughout the course of a pending deal. These include, but are not limited to:
- Title & deed issues
- Boundary disputes
- Zoning & land use issues
- Assumptions of liability
- Inspection & survey issues
- Buyer or seller default
