At Tarantino Law, PLLC, we know that buying or selling a home can be very stressful—especially when it comes to closing. After all, a home is a major investment, and you could be making one of the most important financial decisions of your life. While a real estate agent or broker may have years of experience for you to rely on during the closing process, they do not have extensive knowledge of real estate law, so it’s important to consult an attorney before you close on a house. Here are several reasons why you need to hire an attorney for real estate closings:
- The state requires it. In many states throughout the U.S., it is recommended that you hire a closing attorney, but it’s not necessarily required. That’s not the case in North Carolina. Here, state law requires an attorney to take care of real estate closings.
- It offers protection. Whether we’re completing a title examination or reviewing closing documents, we have your best interests in mind. If there are any errors or other issues you should be aware of, we will inform you of them and help you understand any confusing legal language.
- It can reduce your stress. Although real estate closings can be stressful, it can help you feel at ease to have a skilled attorney at your side. You will be able to have peace of mind that everything is being taken care of in the proper manner.
