Residential Real Estate Purchase and Sales
Buyers and sellers alike have a common interest in using a properly drafted real estate contract to finalize their transaction. Like any legal contract, it is important to have an experienced attorney draft and review the purchase agreement for a home, as these legal documents contain numerous important provisions. Attorney Sean Robertson is skilled in guiding clients through residential real estate transactions. He makes sure his clients are fully educated on every aspect of their purchase agreement and has a clear understanding of the rights and responsibilities afforded to them by this legal document.
It is best to have an attorney review an offer prior to submission to ensure all provisions are reasonable and acceptable. We closely scrutinize all areas of a purchase agreement including:
- Purchase price
- Property included in the sale
- Inspection clause
- Mortgage contingency clause
- Financing clause
- Seller disclosures
- Prorated amounts (taxes, association dues, etc.)
When we identify an area of a purchase agreement that exposes our clients to unnecessary risk or does not fit in with our clients’ objectives, we take action. We are skilled in negotiating the finer points of real estate contracts and modifying contracts to better protect our clients. Once we have reached a satisfactory agreement on the terms of the sale, we provide full closing representation to ensure the transaction processes smoothly.
