Why You Need a Lawyer to Buy or Sell Your Home

When it comes to homeownership, there are many things you can do on your own. Thanks to tips from many DIY websites and resources, homeowners throughout Chicagoland can learn how to prepare their home to sell by upgrading countertops or planting flowers to improve curb appeal. However, when it comes to purchasing or selling a home, you cannot rely on a DIY attitude. Having an experienced attorney at your side during the entire process is a wise decision that can save you time, money, and frustration during an otherwise overwhelming time.

Lawyer Assistance During a Home Purchase

Buying a new home, whether your first time or not, is an exciting time! Once you find a home that you love and send an offer, be sure you contact an experienced real estate attorney. At Gandhi Selim Law, we typically come alongside our clients right after the initial offer is sent and work with them during an average of six weeks, until a successful closing. One of our duties is to work closely with the Realtor to assure that all items noticed on the inspection were taken care of, as well as verifying any HOA documents.

During our time together, we are ready to advocate for your during any questions or concerns about inspection recommendations, as well as to review and draw up contracts for your closing. Without a lawyer by your side and available for questions and guidance, you can quickly drown in a sea of paperwork, wondering if you are making the best decisions to protect your new investment.

Lawyer Assistance During Selling a Home

Using a lawyer to help you finalize the selling of your home is also crucial. Title transfer paperwork and contract review are just a few items that your attorney will help you with, in addition to making sure the closing documents are prepared and ready for your closing date. We also work with the Realtor to assist with any inspection issues. When needed, your attorney can also communicate directly with the title company during transfer paperwork completion.

When it comes to selling or purchasing your home, don’t forget to rally the right team around you to protect your investment. Rajvi Gandhi Selim has years of experience working with homeowners throughout Chicagoland, and is ready to guide you all the way through closing.
