Why You Need a Real Estate Lawyer

In some states, real estate investments involve real estate agents, title insurance companies, lenders, and the buyers and sellers, without the assistance of an attorney.

In the state of Illinois, attorneys have a significant role in the real estate purchase process because after the buyers and sellers have a contract, there is an attorney review period allowing an attorney to review and accept or reject the contract, usually within a 5-day period.

When you are entering into a real estate contract, it is important to take this opportunity to protect your immediate and future rights. We can draft, review, or modify your contract to ensure that your rights and obligations are clear.

Residential Real Estate

For most people buying a home, they are making the biggest investment they will ever make. We are committed to providing the sound counsel and guidance you can trust throughout the process. We will provide you with the information you need regarding the terms of your contract, your rights, obligations, contingencies, and work with you to meet your goals. From financing your purchase through the closing, we will protect your rights and your real estate investment.
