Seller Representation

How can an attorney help a seller?

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, 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.
