Representing Realtors In Residential And Commercial Real Estate Issues
When people seek advice in real estate transactions they often turn to either a real estate agent or a lawyer — rarely both. It is valuable, however, for realtors to have a reliable attorney who can help simplify the complex legal jargon in real estate closings and agreements.
These are complex real estate investments that represent some of the most financially risky decisions individuals will make in their lifetimes. It is easy for a minor error to cause great loss, leaving the realtor in the midst of a dispute. Having a lawyer from Maitland & English Law Firm, PLLC, involved in the process can help prevent disputes between individual homebuyers or commercial investors and the real estate agents who have helped close the deal.
How Can Hiring An Attorney Help Me As A Real Estate Broker Or Agent?
Real estate agents are subject to legal disputes just like any other professional. If an agent ends up closing a sale that comes back with errors in contracts or undisclosed property damage issues, he or she may end up being the subject of a lawsuit.
We make sure documents clearly outline the condition of property, each party’s responsibilities in real estate closings, title transfers and issues that require the investigation of previous titleholders. We can protect you against common claims filed against real estate agents and brokers, such as breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract, fraud claims, misrepresentation of property condition or property value, and financial disputes.
