You’ve been looking for a place to call your business’s home for some time. You’ve gone to multiple properties and looked into purchasing a few. Unfortunately, they’ve always been too far out of your price range or had problems upon inspection, so you had to keep looking.
Then, not too long ago, you found the perfect shop. It had an amazing view, was on the corner of a busy intersection and seems like the perfect place for your business to set up shop. You made an offer, and now, all you need to do is to make sure the closing goes smoothly.
Make sure your closing goes as planned with the right help
When you’re getting ready to close on a property that you want to buy for your business, you know that it’s important that every “t” is crossed and every “i” is dotted. You want to make sure this is a good purchase and one that will benefit you in the long term.
Buying a property is a step that can have significant financial impact on your life, so it’s important that the closing goes as smoothly as possible. To help make that possible, you may want to work with an attorney.
Why work with a real estate attorney?
Real estate attorneys are skilled in law and understand how to protect your rights and best interests throughout the purchasing process. Your attorney can do a few different things for you including:
- Reviewing your contract before you sign
- Helping you understand current real estate laws
- Assisting you with zoning concerns or understanding the regulations that may apply to your new business property
- Helping with negotiating the purchase price
- Helping obtain appraisals and inspections
- Assisting with the transfer of escrow
- Searching for titles and helping with the removal of liens
…and so much more. If you’re buying a property, it’s in your best interests to have good representation. Working with your attorney gives you someone who is truly on your side, not someone who is making money when you purchase the property or who wants you to buy regardless of how it affects you.
When you look for a real estate attorney, find one that makes you feel confident that you have support. Get good reviews and referrals, so you know that this is an attorney who has your best interests at heart. This makes a difference, especially with such a major purchase.
