Real Estate Transaction Attorney
There are many benefits to hiring a real estate transaction attorney. When you work with a lawyer experienced in real estate law, you will benefit from the extensive knowledge we have of complex real estate laws as they relate to your case.
We can help you understand the particulars of your real estate transaction, ideally before you are legally bound by an agreement. We will make every effort to make sure you get the results you want.
At the Law Office of Carolyn C. Phillips, APC., we assist clients in many different types of real estate transactions, both residential and commercial. The duties of the Buyer to inspect all aspects of the property and the Seller to disclose anything that can affect the value and desirability of the property are often not clearly understood by Buyers and Sellers and they end up either filing a lawsuit or defending one after the close of escrow.
In the State of California, neither real estate brokers, nor real estate salespersons are licensed to provide legal advice concerning how to proceed in a real estate transaction. In fact, if you take a look at the bottom of each “California Association of Realtors®” form your real estate salesperson will ask you to sign, it states in all capital letters: “A REAL ESTATE BROKER IS THE PERSON QUALIFIED TO ADVISE ON REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS. IF YOU DESIRE LEGAL OR TAX ADVICE, CONSULT AN APPROPRIATE PROFESSIONAL.” The stakes are high in both residential and commercial transactions. The money you will pay for sound legal advice is a good investment and will help you to resolve issues before you waive all contingencies and close escrow.
If you are contemplating a future real estate transaction, or are in the middle of one that doesn’t feel quite right, give us a call and we will be able to provide legal advice based on years of experience in both real estate transactions and real estate litigation. If you have already closed escrow and believe the Seller did not disclose everything he or she should have, call us. If you have received a letter requesting that you mediate, or arbitrate, a real estate dispute, or have received a Summons and Complaint alleging fraud, misrepresentation, failure to disclose, and/or breach of contract, we can help.
