Here's why a home inspection is so important for new homeowners

You're prepared to spend a large amount of money on the right home, but is everything as it appears? There are horror stories of people who purchase properties that look attractive but end up damaged and falling apart just months after the purchase goes through. How can you protect yourself against this kind of financial mistake? Your attorney should be able to help you add a clause to your purchasing contract that states what happens if the home was misrepresented or if certain things end up being wrong after you agree to buy the home.

What are some laws that affect foreclosure?

There are a number of federal laws that affect the foreclosure process. For example, if you find yourself struggling to make ends meet and fail to pay your mortgage, you may find a foreclosure notice in your mail. If you decide to file for bankruptcy, that bankruptcy action automatically halts the foreclosure proceeding.

You could wait months for a short sale, so try these tips

A short sale is a process during which you sell your home for less than it is worth. To do this, you must have approval from the mortgage lender. Typically, you cannot be behind on payments and need to get as much money for the property as possible. The lender is only likely to approve a sale if the property is sold for a fair market price.

You deserve protection when selling or buying a home

When you buy a home or sell a home, it's always a good idea to work with an attorney who has experience in real estate law. Real estate laws change, and it's important to know that you've done everything in your power to complete a legal sale or purchase. With an attorney, you can verify contracts and make sure you're getting the best deal.
