Southern California Real Estate Attorney

The Southern California real estate law firm of Joseph E. Deering, Jr., Attorney at Law, can help clients with many different types of commercial and residential real estate issues.

Who is looking out for your interests?

When purchasing real estate, a good rule of thumb for deciding whether you need an attorney is whether you understand legal agreements. Legal terms can be confusing and agreements can be poorly written. You deal with a real estate agent, a lending institution, the seller, a title insurance representative, and other parties when buying real estate. Agreements made are legally binding. And you need to ask yourself, "Who is looking out for my interests?"

A Southern California real estate lawyer is the professional who looks out for your interests. You hire the lawyer to determine whether the contract is legally sound, advise whether the terms and conditions put you at a disadvantage, and to ensure a contract is not ambiguous. If fraud or undisclosed title defects later arise, your lawyer can sue on your behalf to recover damages.

Investors purchasing residential property or homes most typically make a residential real estate lawyer part of their professional team. When most families purchase a home, they make the largest investment of their lives. Having an attorney review your legal documents — the pile of loan and purchasing agreements paperwork — can help bring peace of mind that your transaction and future investment are secure. One should also consider the help of an elder law attorney to protect their investment in the future.
