How Can A Lawyer Help With Buying Property

There are many reasons why a lawyer’s guidance is critical when buying a home or property in Maine. A lawyer can help with everything from vetting a buyer to creating and drafting purchase agreements, running title checks, assisting in negotiations, helping to obtain the mortgage, being present at the closing, and ensuring that the deed is transferred effectively.

While a lawyer is not strictly required by law for property closings in Maine, it is necessary if you want to be well-represented in the deal. The state acknowledged this by creating a law ensuring that buyers can select their own attorney for closing. Your attorney will advise and guide you in ways that no bank or title company ever could and will provide an honest assessment of risks.

Without a lawyer, bottlenecks can occur at any step throughout the purchase process. Having a lawyer ensures that the purchase or sale will move along efficiently. Costly errors will be avoided by an experienced real estate attorney, saving you time and money. Individuals from out-of-state will benefit even more by having knowledgeable local counsel, and in fact, it may be the only way to complete such a deal. This added layer of protection can make all the difference when it comes to ensuring a sound, long-term investment.
