A seller’s attorney can:
- write or review the listing agreement with the seller’s real estate agent;
- review the buyer’s Offer to Purchase, or draft or review the seller’s Counteroffer and amendments;
- help satisfy contingencies to the Offer;
- draft the deed and other legal documents required to close the sale;
- advise the seller at closing to be sure all closing documents, including financial arrangements and others are in order; and
- advise the seller if you decide to sell on a land contract.
Again, if legal conflicts or questions arise at any point during the course of the sale, only your attorney can provide you legal advice.
