Our lawyers want to make your life less complicated. And that requires getting us involved early. If you hire a residential real estate contract lawyer before entering into a deal, you will be able to make better-educated decisions on your real estate investment. We will work with your broker to make sure your interests are protected.
Realtors are in an awkward position because they cannot practice law. A lawyer can help fill In the blanks about the practical effects of each paragraph in the standard Texas Real Estate Commission (“TREC”) form. And unlike brokers and real estate agents, attorneys can modify the actual language of the form and draft special provisions to protect their client’s interests. Realtors can only fill in the blanks. Some of the common issues and adjustments made by real estate attorneys to the residential sales contract include:
- “As Is” Language
- Providing Survey “As Is”
- Eliminating Specific Performance
- Seller Financing Terms
- Revocation of Offer Deadline
- Appraisal Contingencies
Using a residential real estate lawyer to guide you through the residential transactions can help protect your interests and give you peace of mind.
