You may not need a lawyer for every official process you undertake in Virginia. However, real estate transactions often require attention to detail and contextual knowledge above and beyond what most non-attorneys are able to provide. Typically, the additional work results in a smooth, complete transaction.
This is one of our focus areas here at Patel & Dalrymple, PLLC. We hope you will continue reading for the justification behind using professional legal assistance during these high-value transactions.
Perhaps the most compelling reason to get help during a real estate transaction is that the process is complex. There are often multiple stages, and there is documentation to go along with each stage. Whether you are a buyer or seller, you have a vested interest in completing every requirement and keeping the evidence of those completions organized.
There is the potential for conflict at nearly every step, from the home inspection to the final closing. These conflicts sometimes come from material situations, in which case they should be addressed in a civil, collaborative matter in order to avoid escalation. However, we find that many conflicts are avoided simply by clear and responsive communication.
If there is no recourse to either defuse or avoid a conflict, you would probably need legal representation. Our office is prepared to negotiate, mediate and litigate on your behalf in real estate disputes.
Behind every smooth real estate transaction, there is usually a team of people working diligently alongside one another to make it happen. To learn more about our services and for other information, please continue on to our main website.
