Choosing to buy a home requires you to make a lot of decisions. You may need to decide on location and the type of house you want, whether or not you will do any renovations, and which Real Estate Lawyer you will hire to close the sale and give you the keys to your new home. So how do you find the best Real Estate Lawyer? Fortunately, we have provided some tips to help you make at least one of the many decisions that come with buying a home!
Your Real Estate Agent is there to help guide and advise you through most aspects of the home buying process, but it is a Real Estate Lawyer who will help you navigate through all the legal requirements. In the RE/MAX Ultimate Home Buyers Guide, we have provided you with an Interview Checklist that lists all the questions you need to ask to ensure your potential lawyer has the experience and qualifications that will best fit your needs.
The Real Estate Lawyer Interview Checklist will help you get answers to the following questions:
- How long have you been practicing law?
- How long have you been involved with real estate law?
- Where did you graduate?
- How long have you worked on real estate in this province?
- Have you dealt with similar cases before?
- How long will you proceed with my case?
- Will anyone else be working on my case?
- How will I be billed?
It is important you choose a Real Estate Lawyer you not only trust, but one you can understand and easily work with to ensure all legal matters in the home buying process are properly taken care of. Before you meet with a Real Estate Lawyer, equip yourself with the questions you will want to ask in that first meeting.
