Do You Still Get to Pick Your Real Estate Attorney if You are the Seller? April 7, 2020 In most real estate transactions, there are generally three key players at the table: the buyer, the seller, and the lender. Each player has a stake in the transaction, and each should be doing what they can to protect their interests and assets throughout the process. The best way to do this? Ensure that you have representation. No matter which player you are, you want your voice heard and your rights protected, especially when making such a large financial transaction like those commonplace in real estate. Regardless if you are the buyer or the seller (or the lender, for that matter), yes, you have a choice in who you select to be your real estate attorney. How a seller’s attorney works for you Real estate attorneys help you, as a seller, from start to finish in the real estate transaction process. They are familiar with all of the local and state laws and will help protect your rights, as well as keep you out of any potential legal hot water you may not even know you should be concerned about. An attorney becomes even more important at closing when the paperwork really piles up and the opportunities can be ripe for legal disputes. There’s nothing worse than being the only one at the closing table without legal representation. If you are selling your home in Florida, you understand the financial investment that’s at stake.
