Finding legal representation when buying a house

The legal team at Hilborn & Konduros in Cambridge understands that buying a new home is a stressful ordeal for most. Making any major purchase generally involves some uncertainty, but when you’re buying a home you want to be as sure as you can be that you’re making a sound investment.

When it’s time to move on, hiring a real estate lawyer to oversee the sale of your house might seem like an unnecessary expense, but having an expert to walk you through the process and manage the paperwork will help relieve a great deal of stress and will likely end up saving you money in the long run.

First-time property buyers or sellers may not yet have a grasp on how involved a process buying a house is, but anyone who has tried to navigate regulation after regulation in property law knows how helpful a lawyer’s advice can be. But working through your paperwork and overseeing the sale is only one side of real estate law. The other is the complicated world of litigation.

If you find that the home you’ve bought isn’t what the previous owners claimed it was, it’s a good idea to get legal advice so that you can determine what recourse you might have. Whether it’s a leaky roof or mould in the basement, if the previous owners didn’t disclose this information you may have grounds to sue. Hardly anyone looks forward to a drawn-out legal dispute, but with the experts at Hilborn & Konduros on your side you’ll stand a good chance of avoiding one.

The real estate market generally picks up in summer months, so if, like many others, you’re thinking of buying or selling a home, it’s important to ensure that you have adequate legal representation.
