When the average San Antonio resident plans to buy a home, it will likely be one of the biggest purchases — if not the biggest purchase — of his or her life. For that reason, a real estate purchase should never be done in haste, and homebuyers may want to discuss their purchase plans with a qualified real estate lawyer before pulling the trigger on the deal.
Although the average real estate agent is well-equipped to represent his or her client to complete the closing on a property, a lawyer will be especially skilled at helping homebuyers prevent future legal problems in the event a real estate transaction is managed inappropriately. Here are some of the issues that we commonly help our clients with at the Law Offices of Mathew J. Obermeier:
— Closings on real estate transactions: The closing process involves a lot of signatures on what seems like an unlimited number of documents. An attorney can help San Antonio homebuyers avoid mistakes when filling out these documents.
— Lease agreement analyses: Whether a lease is for a period of a year or five years, it is important to read and understand the agreement carefully. A real estate lawyer can advise homebuyers on whether they are getting a good “deal” or not.
— Landlord-tenant issues: No matter which side of a landlord tenant issues you find yourself on, these issues can be difficult to navigate. These matters usually rely on the language of the law affecting the person, and a lawyer can help Texas residents understand the law through this haze.
