Reasons to Hire a Real Estate Attorney
Hiring a real estate attorney to help you buy or sell your home is not a requirement in South Carolina. However, many people find hiring a real estate attorney to be a valuable investment because the paperwork and other aspects of home buying and selling can be very complicated.
If you are buying a home, the best time to hire an attorney is as soon as you have a signed contract for the purchase of a property. Our real estate attorney will begin working on your file and will tentatively set a closing date for the transaction to be finalized. If you are obtaining a loan for your purchase, the attorney will stay in touch with the bank in order to schedule other steps such as an appropriate title search and preparation of other needed documents. The buyer’s attorney will usually host the closing, obtain payoffs, purchase title insurance, and collect and disburse funds.
If you are selling a piece of property, you may use the same attorney as the buyers, or you can choose your own. Your attorney will prepare the deed and proper seller’s affidavits on your behalf. If any difficulties arise regarding the title to the property, your attorney can help you work through the final details of the sale.
In addition to customary closing services, we are experienced in numerous areas of real estate law and can help with boundary disputes, title disputes, permitting and zoning issues, commercial or residential leases, evictions, divisibility actions, tax disputes, and more.
At Bostic Law Group, P.A., we offer competitive attorneys’ fees and excellent customer service to make the transaction as smooth as possible. If you are unsure about whether or not you need an attorney and would like to know more, we offer free consultations to all new clients.
