5 Questions To Ask Before Hiring A NYC Real Estate Lawyer
A simple real estate transaction is handled by an agent or broker. However, if you have a complicated deal, a real estate lawyer is required to protect you and your finances.
There are some issues that need to be handled by a competent lawyer. The average straightforward transaction doesn’t exactly warrant a lawyer’s help and, while you need [a lawyer] to guarantee protection from a risky transaction, may even be seen as an unnecessary expense. But if you are buying homes through a short sale or the current homeowners are facing foreclosure, you absolutely need a lawyer.
To ensure a smooth process, you need to know how to find a good real estate lawyer. No matter how big or small, real estate transactions are life-changing events and you should make sure you prepare accordingly. When looking for a lawyer, keep the following things in mind:
1. The number of similar cases they’ve handled
This is one of the best and most revealing things that you can ask your potential attorney. This can give you clear expectations on your real estate deal and the lawyer can relay their experiences in handling cases related to what you have now which will let them foresee potential problems and easily head them off.
2. Overall experience
Real life experience is very important and, in many ways, is more relevant than high educational attainment or grade. If the case is just a simple matter-- such as a purchase agreement-- you’ll be fine with any lawyer with knowledge on how to approach the matter but if you are talking about real estate matters that are complicated or unusual, you should look for somebody who has handled countless regular cases and gone through multiple complicated deals.
On the other hand, a less experienced lawyer will not cost as much as a seasoned one but an experienced lawyer will be better equipped to find outside-the-box solutions.
3. How do they intend to handle your case
Any competent lawyer, after thoroughly reviewing your situation, can give you an outline of how they intend to handle your real estate property closing. You want to avoid a lawyer that gives you an ambiguous answer.
4. How will you be billed
Avoid unpleasant surprises by clarifying the price and schedule of your payments and fees as well as the amount that you need to prepare. You’d be surprised at the number of people who never ask about this in advance.
5. Who else will be working on your case
Sometimes, lawyers work in groups, especially if they work for law firms. The one you are talking to may be supported by another or they may even delegate someone else to handle your case. You should know about these things.
To find a lawyer with a good record and reputation, ask other lawyers, family, or friends if they know of a real estate lawyer who can help you. From there, you can ask the questions discussed.
Another thing, observe how you and the lawyer talk about these matters. If you feel at ease after asking the aforementioned questions as well as anything else that is concerning you, then they are probably the best person to help you.
