There are many dangers to choosing the wrong real estate lawyer, or going without one -- and many advantages to choosing the right one. If you are considering purchasing real estate in Massachusetts, hiring the right real estate lawyer is essential to avoiding problems.
There could be structural problems with the house, problems with the title, inaccurate valuation or the purchase agreement itself. There are sometimes even unscrupulous or dishonest parties involved -- be advised. Whenever there is a problem, the cost to you usually goes up. The cost of remedies, getting out of a deal, or litigation costs can be more than you anticipate.
A professional in real estate law, and one who has focused on this area for decades, will be your guide through these dangers. Just as medicine has become more specialized, your lawyer should be one who focuses on and understands the complexities and trends of a modern transaction.
