3 Times You Need a Real Estate Lawyer, Milford, Pennsylvania

Whether you’re buying your first home or selling a commercial property, the transaction will involve large sums of money. It’s recommended to enlist the help of a real estate lawyer who’s familiar with the local legislation and can fill out paperwork or close the deal properly. There are certain instances when legal assistance is a must if you want to protect your interests and avoid needless headaches.

Situations When a Real Estate Lawyer Will Help You

1. Selling or Purchasing Property

personal injuryEven if it seems straightforward, always have a lawyer review all paperwork related to the sale or purchase of any property. This ensures you don’t miss any essential details in the paperwork and aren’t wasting money. For instance, you may buy a piece of land with the intent of installing a swimming pool — only to learn after the fact that local zoning regulations won’t permit this. A lawyer will check such details so you make the best decision.

2. Dealing With Unique Properties

Certain properties are subject to more stringent regulations. Examples range from real estate located adjacent to a national park to property that includes an easement — a right for another person or entity to use or cross part of the land. Commercial properties can also be quite complex depending on their intended use. A manufacturing plant, for instance, will have to meet certain legal guidelines regarding issues like waste disposal.  

3. Facing Real Estate Law Issues

Maybe a contractor working on the commercial building next door to yours is raising zoning issues. Or perhaps a tenant of yours broke the terms of their lease and you want to sue. Whenever legal issues are at stake, hire a real estate lawyer. They will have the expertise required to complete complicated paperwork, file a response on your behalf, and — if needed — represent you in court.
