The role of an Illinois real estate lawyer that is representing a seller or a buyer typically involves two tasks. First, the lawyer will review the sales contract to make sure that the client is getting what they think they are getting. During this time the lawyer will also help negotiate for items that are not specifically mentioned in the contract. This usually involves issues that come up during an inspection or related to financing the purchase.
The second major role of an Illinois real estate attorney involves arranging and attending the closing. At the closing the whole transaction will become official. As a buyer or seller you will be asked to sign a large amount of documents. The attorney’s role is to make sure the documents say what they are supposed to say and to explain to their client what they are signing. A closing, especially for a first time buyer, can be confusing. The lawyer’s role is to make it a comfortable process.
While these tasks aren’t the only that a lawyer performs for a client at a closing, in our opinion these are the most important ones. If you have any questions about the role of a lawyer in a real estate closing or would like a referral, please contact us.
