Legal Support For Real Estate Contracts

The One to Four Family Residential Contract (Resale) is the most well-known and used contract in the state of Texas. While it may be the most widely used contract, it may not be the best one for a purchaser, seller or investor. The real estate buyer or seller should consult with an experienced Houston real estate contract lawyer to be better advised. Have an attorney help determine whether that standard contract is right for you.

A real estate attorney can help negotiate a real estate transaction and prepare the contract for your use and benefit.

If you require a real estate contract, consult Richard Weaver at The Weaver Law Firm.

Why Hire a Lawyer Instead of a Real Estate Agent?

Why should someone hire a lawyer when he or she may already have a real estate agent? Because lawyers have the legal knowledge and ability to change the language in the form contracts used by Realtors. Brokers have certain limitations, including the limitation to filling the blanks of the forms and checking certain boxes. They would also fill out any attached addenda.

The person representing the buyer or seller should keep the client's best interests at heart. Consulting a real estate attorney can be an inexpensive process. Not having a Realtor and only a real estate attorney can potentially save a buyer thousands of dollars, depending on the deal.

We understand that sellers have certain questions, like:

  • What is an "as-is" contract?
  • What is due diligence?
  • Why are surveys important?
  • What is the legal significance of the content in a contract?
  • Can the seller finance this transaction?
  • How much must a seller disclose about a property?

If you have these types of questions or any question regarding the sale or purchase of real property, we want to help. Call us at 713-454-7875.
