For Purchase Contracts Drafts & Reviews

Usually when it comes to purchasing contracts, that is left to the real estate agent. A purchase contract is the most important document during the home buying process. So it being 100% right is crucial. A purchase contract has some important issues that need to be correct, such as the timing, the inspection and the title.

The timing is for effectively closing on the property, which could at some point be delayed. But having an accurate timeline means a lot. For the inspection, it uncovers potential issues with the home. Which means the seller and buyer may end up negotiating on who will pay for those repairs. For these instances, a lot of money and time is at stake when it comes to the home inspection. Lastly, the title, which might turn up a lien on the property in question. When this happens, turning to a lawyer is wise since it may help ensure that the title insurance on the new home adequately protects you from any potential issues in the future.
