Do You Need an Akron Real Estate Attorney?

In some states, home buyers are required to involve a real estate attorney. Those states include Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, and West Virginia. The states of Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Dakota, and South Dakota require a real estate attorney’s opinion. In Ohio, it is not required to involve a real estate attorney. The only time an attorney is required is if a deed for property is being transferred to another person. In that case, an attorney is needed to draft the title.

If it is not required, why should you hire one of our attorneys to help you with your property purchase? There are several reasons.

  1. A real estate attorney Akron Ohio will be able to tell you quickly about local building codes and permits. Your attorney will help you make sure your property is in compliance with permit guidelines and zoning codes so you don’t run into problems later in the process.
  2. Sometimes the paperwork can feel overwhelming. Homeowners sometimes feel unsure which is harder to cope with, the cost of buying a new home or the time required to review all of the paperwork and get it in good order. The more paperwork there is and the more time is a factor, the easier it is to overlook important details. A real estate attorney helps remove all of that stress and strain by reviewing paperwork with and for you, advising you regarding certain points, and protecting you from any potential mistakes or pitfalls.
  3. If there is a lot of paperwork in a normal home purchase, there can be even more if your purchase is a little out of the norm for whatever reason. Having an attorney help you with unusual contract terms or requirements that seem unfamiliar is highly beneficial.
  4. If you know your property has a history of certain issues, how can you sell it to anyone without running into charges of fraud or, at best, misleading the buyer? A real estate attorney may be able to advise you on how to fix problems like lead, termites, or mold, and if you aren’t able to eradicate the problem, a real estate attorney will be able to help you word your contract appropriately.
  5. You can actually save money by hiring a real estate attorney on the front end of a sale or purchase. That may seem counter-intuitive because, of course, real estate attorneys need to be paid for their work. However, for every problem an attorney can save you from, or from every potential really serious mess they help you circumvent, a real estate attorney will save you a lot of money, not to mention a lot of time.
