In our immediately preceding blog post (please see our November 10 entry), we noted that, "In the realm of high-value real estate closings, timely and close involvement with a seasoned real estate attorney can help to optimally promote a seller's or buyer's best interests."
Indeed, there are many reasons why that is so. Today we expound a bit on how close interaction with a proven closing attorney can benefit any party centrally involved in the consummation of a real estate deal, particularly at the closing stage.
Just as there is a maxim that location is everything when it comes to real estate, so too is there a reality underscoring that in-depth and carefully applied legal knowledge is an absolute prerequisite to any successful closing.
On our website page discussing commercial and residential real estate closings, we note that, "Real estate transactions always involve legal documents." In fact, there can be reams of forms and agreements applicable in any given transaction, and no professional other than a practiced attorney with a deep well of on-point experience is fully equipped to negotiate, draft and review them.
Moreover, and unlike title companies (which often participate in property closings), real estate attorneys far more often carry liability insurance, which serves as a protective umbrella for clients. Additionally, attorneys are licensed and regulated by Florida officials in far more exacting fashion than is the case with title company employees. Further still, attorneys have a singular fiduciary relationship with those they represent, in that they are legally tasked to act at all times in a manner that optimally promotes their clients' interests.
At the Melbourne law firm of Frese Hansen, our dedicated and experienced attorneys have collectively been assisting real estate clients with all their needs for many decades from a firm that was established more than a quarter century ago.
