Why You Need a Good Residential Real Estate Attorney in New Jersey

A heated real estate market offers unprecedented opportunities and risks. That’s why it’s so important to have reliable information and solid legal advice before you buy or sell property. Gillman, Bruton & Capone can help you avoid making costly mistakes.

Reviewing Purchase Agreements for Buyers

People sometimes think real estate purchase agreements are always standard but that is not true. Our New Jersey attorneys could review your residential purchase agreement and ensure you understand the meaning of every term. If there are unusual clauses or potential traps, we will discuss the risks so you make a fully informed decision.

During the review period, we will discuss any aspects of the contract you would like to change. It could be possible to add a rider or addendum that makes the contract more advantageous to you, such as extending the deadline for an inspection or changing a contingency clause.

If the purchase agreement concerns a cooperative apartment or condominium, the review should include an inspection of the relevant deeds, articles of incorporation, board minutes, Bylaws, and Condo Association Rules. These inspections can often reveal important information that impacts your purchase decision.

Representing Sellers

When selling real estate, you want to get your price and then close the transaction quickly. Our residential real estate attorney could confirm your title is clear and ensure you make all the relevant disclosures necessary to sell property in New Jersey. They could prepare a purchase agreement that reflects your needs and preferences regarding move-in dates and similar concerns. If the buyer returns the agreement with a rider or addendum, they could review the changes and ensure the seller finds them acceptable before finalizing the contract.

If you are a residential real estate investor, a lawyer can create forms and standard contracts that you use in all your transactions. Consistency in your legal documents helps you run your business efficiently.

Representation at Closings

Whether you are buying your first home, purchasing land to develop, or selling an investment property, the closing is an exciting time. But unfortunately, a lot can go wrong if you are not careful.

When you work with Gillman, Bruton & Capone, you are represented by a lawyer who knows how to work in cooperation with area banks, mortgage brokers and other lenders, real estate brokers, attorneys, and title companies and other real estate professionals. These relationships can be enormously helpful if there is a problem securing a document or some other issue that needs to be smoothed over.

Assisting Property Owners in Financial Distress

With the real estate market moving up and down at breakneck speed, it is not surprising that some clients find that their investment is not paying off. In some cases, an individual might be in danger of losing their family home.

If you are in arrears on your mortgage or facing foreclosure, we can help you save your home. If there are grounds to fight the foreclosure, a New Jersey lawyer could contest the proceedings. If necessary, we may discuss how filing for bankruptcy is the best way to prevent foreclosure.
