Chicago Lawyer for Real Estate Sales & Purchases

Hyde Park Real Estate Transactions Attorney

Real Estate Transactions Lawyer in Chicago

Real estate transactions can be highly complex. Buyers and sellers alike are making an enormous commitment. The legal language contained in the closing documents is all very significant. Sales documents list the promises that each party is making to the other. Many parties sign these documents without a clear understanding of what is in them. This is very understandable - buyers and sellers are typically confronted with a detailed contract rife with archaic language and legal terminology.

The Sherrod Law Firm, Ltd., can help you close on your sale with a high degree of confidence. We will review every part of every contract you will be asked to sign. There are many other ways we can help real estate buyers and sellers, from conducting a meticulous title search to drafting a strong deed. When you are entering a transaction this big, you should have an attorney to protect your interests throughout the sales process.

Evanston Attorney for Residential Real Estate

Buying or selling a family home is many people's first experience with real estate transactions. If it is your first time interacting with this market, it can help enormously to have the guidance and support an attorney can provide. We are highly experienced with residential real estate transactions, and we can act to guard your interests as soon as you begin looking.

Even if you are a more experienced buyer or seller, our attorneys can provide sophisticated legal protection against the risks of real estate transactions. Real estate agents cannot provide the same level of service, and they do not have the legal knowledge needed to fully protect you. Our attorneys have years of experience working on real estate transactions from a legal perspective, and we will use the knowledge we have gained to guard your interests.

Legal Support Buying or Selling Multi-Unit Buildings

Transactions involving multi-unit residential buildings are very different from single-family home sales. These properties are often purchased as investments. Unless you are purchasing a brand new building, there are likely to be tenants living in the building whose current leases must be honored. More complex and detailed inspections are warranted to mitigate potential liabilities for both parties.

It is best to undertake these transactions with the aid of a qualified lawyer. We will work to keep your transaction as smooth and low-risk as possible.

Short Sale Attorneys Serving the Chicago Area

Short sales may bear little resemblance to a standard real estate transaction. If you are short selling your property or are interested in buying a home through a short sale, it is important to work with an attorney who has experience in these types of cases. Our attorneys are well-versed in the process of short sales, and we can zealously represent your interests throughout the period your short sale is in progress.

Hyde Park Title Search & Deed Lawyers

The title search is a critical part of a real estate transaction. It reveals any nonobvious encumbrances attached to the property that could interfere with ownership rights or use of the property. Our attorneys are meticulous in the title searches we conduct, because we know the impact these issues can have when an encumbrance only becomes known after the sale has been completed. We can help address liens, covenants, land use regulations, unsatisfied mortgages, and other issues that could later become a threat to your rights as a buyer or a liability as a seller.

The deed itself is just as important. There are many different types of deeds, and accepting the wrong kind could be a costly mistake. Certain types of deeds may favor one party over the other. A deed should always be reviewed by a lawyer before you agree to a sale or purchase.
