Comprehensive Services During Real Estate Transactions for Homebuyers and Sellers
Mr. Stein can assist with every legal aspect of your residential transaction:
- Drafting or initial review of the purchase agreement
- Negotiating changes in the contract
- Title review
- Home inspection reports (structural, termites, radon)
- Reviewing the mortgage package
- Attending your home closing
For buyers, we review home inspection reports, and help troubleshoot and avoid investing into a money pit masked as “home sweet home.” We will help safeguard your real estate purchase by pushing for all appropriate inspections to uncover undisclosed dangers such as radon gas, termite damage, and mold inspections, and to identify defects or damage in roofs, basements, foundations, septic systems, and private wells. Our real estate attorney will advise you on survey issues, including the division of vacant lots, and advise on drafting deeds and contracts to protect your legal interests. We can refer out-of-state buyers to reputable local lenders to arrange financing.
If you are selling a home in New Jersey, we can negotiate or review the purchase contract. We seek to minimize liability and risks by ensuring that all required disclosures are made, and by verifying the buyer’s mortgage commitment prior to closing. For FSBO clients (for sale by owner), we can draft the contract, order the title inspection and property surveys, and arrange for inspections.
We keep our real estate clients abreast of progress at each stage of the transaction, and our attorney and staff are accessible and responsive to your needs and objectives. We have handled hundreds of residential home sales and purchases in New Jersey and look forward to handling your transaction.
