Real Estate Attorney
Chicago Real Estate Attorney
Real estate transactions can be very complicated and difficult to understand. State statutes and financing requirements can make what looks like a simple deal into a complex one. Establishing a good relationship with a real estate lawyer can make all the difference in terms of your experience buying, selling, or refinancing your home.
The lawyers at Metz & Jones LLC have assisted many clients by working through the issues that come up during or after a real estate transaction. Whether that involves purchasing, selling, or refinancing a single-family home, or multi-unit building, the support of a qualified real estate attorney can make all the difference in terms of your experience with the process.
Buying a New Home
For many people, buying a home will be the most important financial investment they will ever make. The sales contract you will sign is long and complicated, and many of the protections you might have will be time-driven. Without careful attention to details and deadlines, you might have problems getting a mortgage, you could lose your earnest money, or you could even be sued.
At Metz & Jones LLC, a real estate attorney will read the sales contract, suggest changes, and request information and modifications in the time frame allowed. Our Chicago real estate attorney will monitor the mortgage clause, requesting extensions from the seller if your lender needs more time to secure a full mortgage commitment for you, thereby protecting you and your hard-earned money. We also help you sort out any real estate tax issues associated with your new property.
Selling Your Home
The transition of moving is challenging enough without having to worry about the details that go into selling a house. While your real estate agent works to find potential buyers, our real estate attorney will take every opportunity to look out for your best interests, legally speaking. Metz & Jones LLC provides many such services to ease the sale process, from ordering and clearing the title, to drafting closing documents (including the deed).
We order the payoff for your mortgages, the survey, and the zoning and water certification. When everything is ready to be finalized, your Chicago real estate attorney can also prepare documents so that you don’t have to attend the closing.
Refinancing Your Home
When it comes to refinancing your home, the main objective is always to save money. It’s understandable why a person might see hiring a Chicago real estate attorney as a threat to their bottom line—until you consider the significant risks associated with ‘going it alone’ with a refinance.
Our Chicago real estate attorneys will help you gather the documentation needed to complete your refinance and work directly with your chosen lender. With our support, you can rest easily knowing that your refinance will move forward smoothly, with the trained oversight of a qualified legal professional.
