- Are you buying or selling property on an owner-finance? land contract?
- Do you own or manage income-producing property?
- Are you concerned about your property rights?
- Is your neighbor encroaching on your land?
- Do you have title issues?
- Do you own heir property?
Look around the table at the people involved in your real estate activity. Ask yourself, who here represents me?
In a typical real estate transaction, who has YOUR interests at heart?
- The real estate brokers and agents? No, their primary motivation is to close your deal and move on to the next one because they do not get paid unless that sale closes.
- The lenders? No, their interest is in making sure you will pay off the loan and to charge as many fees and points, and highest interest rate possible so the bank makes as much money as it can.
- The title company? Not really. Their laser focus is to ensure that the title is clear and there will be no claims against them in the future. Did you know that any easements of record are excluded from coverage? Do you know if the property you’re buying has an easement or encroachment of record that would not be covered?
- The property inspector? You can choose the inspector, but most of them depend on real estate professionals for future referrals, so who do they really answer to? State law limits inspectors’ liability to the amount you paid for the inspection – usually $400! So even if they miss something, you practically cannot sue them.
- The contractor, if construction or repairs are involved? Not at all. Construction companies protect their own bottom line, as you’d expect them to do.
If no one else at the table is on your side, then it’s just you.
Most of the time, you are the only one in the transaction who really cares about protecting your end of the deal. Everybody else may be friendly and helpful, but it comes down to you. Most real estate transactions go off without a hitch, but if you’re one of the few who have issues, you will be wishing that you’d consulted with an attorney about your real estate transaction!
