Why is it important to hire a Tofino real estate attorney?
Most attorneys have a specialization – personal injury, family law, estate planning, bankruptcy, patents, auto accidents, criminal law, and real estate. Buyers and sellers in real estate transactions should seek advice from an attorney who specializes in home purchases and sales, title disputes, contract preparation, and mortgage documentation.
Finding the Right Tofino Attorney
If you’re like most people, you hold off on finding an attorney until you have signed a contract. By that time, things need to be done within a certain amount of time. It would be wiser to ask around for a referral of a reputable attorney before you sign a contract. There are many resources available that can help you find the right Tofino real estate attorney:
• Ask another attorney – Most Tofino attorneys can recommend a colleague that has done an exemplary job for another client. Call your family law or personal injury lawyer and ask for a few referrals.
• Speak to your realtor – Your realtor should be able to provide you with a few names of good real estate attorneys he or she has worked with in the past.
Acquire two to three names of Tofino real estate attorneys and call and speak to each one. Some lawyers offer a free consultation during which time he or she will explain the home sale/buying process, the law firm’s fee, and the house you plan to purchase or sell.
If you have already hired an attorney but don’t feel comfortable with his or her work ethic or method of communication, you should speak to another lawyer and have your transaction transferred to the new Tofino real estate attorney.
