Maine Real Estate Lawyers

Maine Real Estate Lawyers

Are you buying or selling property in Maine? It is time to consult with an experienced Maine real estate attorney. Buying a home is a huge investment. In fact, for many people, their home may be the largest purchase that they ever make. For this reason, it is essential to make sure that your investment is sound. This involves hiring a lawyer to draft and review all purchase and sale agreements, as well as to conduct a thorough title search. Without the help of a lawyer to draft and review your purchase and sale agreements, you will just be signing the dotted line on a generic agreement. In doing so, you may be missing out on countless opportunities to strengthen your rights, personalize and benefit from the agreement, and create beneficial opportunities for both parties. 

Do I Need a Lawyer for Real Estate Transactions?

In most states, hiring legal representation for a real estate transaction is optional, giving parties who choose to do so an advantage in negotiations and closing. However, Maine is one of the few states that actually requires people to have an attorney for closing. For this reason, you do need to hire an attorney for the final stage of your real estate transaction. You might as well consult with one at the beginning of the transaction to ensure that your interests are represented throughout the entire real estate process. Without a lawyer to represent you, you may even end up spending your life savings on a piece of property to which the seller had no rights. There is no end to the nightmare scenarios that can occur when it comes to purchasing property. Having the added layer of protection against fraud and protecting your rights can make a world of difference when it comes to making an investment. 

What if I Have Already Purchased a Home?

If you have already purchased a home, you may still have a need for a real estate or property attorney. For instance, if a dispute comes up with regard to the property or the property line, you may need an attorney to handle and even litigate the matter. Additionally, you may go to move into your home only to learn that it is full of holdover tenants or squatters. Easements can also require the assistance of an attorney. Just because the purchase has been finalized does not mean all possible legal issues will disappear. Rather, legal matters often become another facet of home ownership. No matter what your real estate issue is, our experienced Maine real estate attorneys are ready to help. It is important to have a dedicated legal advocate on your side when it comes to making your dreams a reality.
