What Should I Ask a Potential Real Estate Attorney?

April 13, 2021

Hiring an attorney is an important step in the real estate process and should not be taken lightly. It is essential that you make sure your attorney can effectively represent you and has the knowledge to protect your rights every step of the way. In New Jersey, you are required to have an attorney in a real estate transaction for the three-day attorney review. This is where your attorney reviews the contract to make sure you are getting a fair deal and the other side isn’t taking advantage of you.

When you are trying to find the right real estate attorney for your case, you should make sure to ask a series of questions to make sure they are qualified for the job. First, you should consider the number of years of experience that the attorney has. The more experience an attorney has, the better. Be sure to ask the attorney about the cases they handle and the similarities they have to your particular situation. For example, if you are trying to do a double closing, make sure your attorney has experience in a situation of this complexity. Find out whether the attorney themselves will handle your case or if they will pass the bulk of the work off to a paralegal. You want to make sure your attorney is the one personally handling your case because their experience is what you are paying for, after all.
