Importance of a Real Estate Attorney in Texas
Entering into a real estate transaction in Texas? The real estate contract you sign will serve as the legal foundation of your transaction. It dictates the terms and conditions, protects your rights, and outlines responsibilities for all parties involved. It’s essential to understand the implications of every clause and to ensure it is to your advantage. While a realtor can help you find your dream property, a competent real estate attorney is vital to ensuring a smooth and protected transaction.
Attorneys play an instrumental role in real estate transactions, especially for high-priced and complex ones. Our knowledge of real estate laws and experience in the field ensures that transactions are completed smoothly, on time, and without any unexpected hitches. We help in ensuring your rights, regardless of whether you’re the buyer or the seller, are thoroughly protected during the transaction.
The Limitations of Realtors and Superiority of Legal Assistance
While realtors are indispensable in the real estate market, their expertise has limitations, rightfully so.
Section 81.101 of the Texas Government Code restricts a Realtor from the giving of advice or the rendering of any service requiring the use of legal skill or knowledge, such as preparing a “contract, or other instrument”. Real estate agents, or realtors who desire to utilize anything other than the fill-in-the-blank contracts could be engaged in the Unauthorized practice of law.
Most residential real estate contracts in Texas utilize standard TREC forms. Realtors may fail to inform our clients about the practical effects of each clause in these contracts. This is where attorneys come in. We are equipped to provide legal interpretations of contracts, ensuring that clients fully understand our obligations and rights.
Customizing Real Estate Contracts and Protecting Your Interests
The scope of an attorney’s service extends beyond just contract review. We can also customize contracts to better protect a client’s interests. This can be through drafting custom addendums as needed or even re-drafting contracts entirely to suit a client’s specific needs. In a field where everything depends on written agreements, it’s paramount to ensure what is penned down is advantageous to you.
Importance of Legal Representation in Complex Transactions
The need for an attorney becomes even more critical in high-priced transactions, commercial dealings, multifamily, and business purchases. These complex transactions require expert legal guidance and protection. Attorneys not only accompany our clients to closings but can also assist with closings through partnerships with reliable title companies.
