When should you retain a real estate attorney to help with the sale or purchase of a new home?
Hire your attorney before you sign an Offer to Purchase. In Massachusetts a signed Offer to Purchase is a binding contract. Most people wait until after they have signed the Offer to Purchase – why hire an attorney if I don’t have a deal? However, once you have signed the Offer to Purchase, those terms are binding. Consult with your attorney before you sign and submit an offer to make sure you’ve covered all your areas of concern.
If you have questions about Massachusetts real estate laws or concerns about the home selling process, and would like to consult an experienced Massachusetts real estate attorney, contact Attorney Ted Cannon to schedule a consultation.
