Owning one’s own home is the essence of the American dream. Unfortunately, that dream can become a nightmare if acquisition of a house or other real estate is not properly handled. It is important that the buyers of residential real estate have a properly negotiated and fully executed purchase agreement. It is also important to ensure that the seller has “good title” to the property and that the inspection process is properly followed. Retaining an attorney, who is experienced in such matters, can help to ensure that the ownership of your new home gets off on the right foot.

There are a number of steps in the process of acquiring residential real estate. First, the buyer must find a home or piece of land they are interested in. Once a purchase price is agreed upon then the parties will enter into a contract. The property will then be inspected and the buyer will have an opportunity to request repairs to issues uncovered in the inspection. It will also be necessary to ensure that the seller has a “clean title” which can be transferred. Once the process is completed then the parties will attend a closing and the final settlement statements will be prepared. If parts of this process are not handled properly then the transaction may be delayed or, worse, the parties may find themselves in subsequent litigation. Retaining an attorney can help to prevent such issues.
