Residential Real Estate Transactions

New Jersey Residential Real Estate Attorney

New Jersey Residential Real Estate AttorneyBuying real estate is one of the biggest investments an individual or family can make.  Because of the unique nature of laws involving real property, it is important that you seek the advice of a skilled attorney who is well-versed in this practice.  New Jersey attorney Laura Bowne Barry has been handling residential real estate transactions throughout Middlesex County for over 25 years and has help countless families achieve the American dream of owning a home.

While there is no law stating that you must involve an attorney in the purchase or sale of your home, though it is highly recommended. The legal consequences from a simple omission or mistake in a contract can potentially cause significant problems later on.

Why Use a Real Estate Attorney

What a real estate attorney does is review the purchase contract, negotiate resolution of any inspection issues, order title work and survey, work with your mortgage lender, coordinate with brokers, set the closing, and work out any issues that might arise during the course of the transaction such as easements or liens.   You will receive personalized attention and deal with the attorney, not an assistant or paralegal.  You will be kept informed, have the transaction explained and have your questions answered at every step in the process.
