Common Legal Questions Answered By Tacoma Real Estate Attorney

Real estate laws are complicated and our clients naturally have many questions regarding their real estate case. Whether your case involves commercial or residential real estate, we will ensure that you fully understand your rights and that we address any questions or concerns you may have. The following are only a few frequently asked questions about real estate cases:

  • Do I need an attorney for a lease agreement? While many people simply sign lease agreements without a second thought, it is important to realize that leases are legally-binding contracts. If you sign and agree to provisions that may be unfair, you may later face significant legal liability, restrictions for your business, or may even lose access to your leased property. It is critical to have a real estate lawyer carefully review any lease agreement before you sign.
  • Do I need representation to buy a home? When purchasing a home, many people hire a real estate agent but fail to consult with a real estate attorney. While an agent can help you find the home of your dreams, they often do not have the knowledge of complex real estate agreements title issues, and other questions that may arise during the process. It is wise to have a lawyer reviewing all contracts and documents during the purchasing process.
  • How much does a real estate lawyer cost? Fees will vary depending on what type of real estate matter you have. We will always be honest and upfront about fees so there are no surprises for you.
  • What type of real estate clients do you take? We regularly represent landlords, tenants, commercial and residential owners, sellers, and purchasers, owners facing foreclosure, among others.

What to Do to Protect Your Rights in Your Real Estate Transaction
