At La Pietra & Krieger, we guide our clients through the entire real estate purchasing and sales law process keeping in mind that, in many cases, this is the single largest transaction in their lives.
This means our firm provides the following services to our clients:
We understand that first-time home buyers are unfamiliar with the home buying process and we take the time to make sure they understand the process from start to finish. No question is stupid and all questions are answered quickly and professionally. Many people buying a home have never met with a lawyer. They wonder why a lawyer is needed for what should be a “simple” transaction. In reality, the only “simple” thing about a real estate transaction is the decision to get a lawyer to guide you through the complex and laborious transaction.
Most lawyers use a standard contract of sale. There are many standard contracts. This contract is prepared by the seller’s attorney. It may include a rider that modifies the standard contract or deals with issues specific to the piece of property that is being sold. These standard forms explain “what happens if…”. We always take the time to go through these contingencies so the client understands what he/she is agreeing to.
Asking a client to sign a document worth your life savings without explaining what the document means is simply unacceptable. Communicating with our clients to ensure a smooth transaction is what brings them back when they are ready to buy or sell their next home. As a result, our practice has continuously grown through repeat clients and their referrals.
