Do I Need a Lawyer for a Residential Real Estate Transaction in Illinois?
While most people know that a realtor is a valuable asset when looking to buy or sell a home, they may not be as certain about the role a lawyer plays in these transactions. Whether you are the buyer or the seller, it is always a good idea to hire a lawyer. Some of the reasons to seek guidance from an experienced and local residential real estate attorney include:
- A lawyer can provide legal guidance that your realtor is not allowed to provide. Realtors function within their own regulatory guidelines, and providing legal guidance does not fall under their purview.
- Lawyers who have experience in this field can help you explore multiple financing options, as they are probably more familiar with the options available than the average consumer.
- A lawyer is looking out for your interests. They are not paid on commission, so they have no interest in closing a sale that may not be in your best interest.
- Residential real estate transactions require contracts, which are legally binding documents. Often, the language can be confusing, and an attorney will ensure that you understand what you are signing.
