Jean Baptiste & Associates
Burlington County Real Estate Lawyer
There are several reasons why you may need a Burlington County real estate lawyer at some point. Real estate transactions are complicated affairs and can have any number of unforeseen obstacles arise. Even your dogs could become an issue in a property purchase, depending on the consolidated dog laws.
Real estate lawyers deal with every legal element on both sides of the table, from drawing up the initial contract to addressing New Jersey construction claims and mortgage fraud defense.
Real estate is like no other commodity. People may design and construct more buildings, but no one is making more land. Because of that, you don’t want to invest time and money into a real estate deal without first knowing that every legal element has been addressed.
Burlington County Real Estate Sales Issues
New Jersey is a proactive state in reporting real estate agents who have failed in their duties or otherwise not complied with the law. There are a number of things that can go wrong during a real estate transaction, and while any one of them could cost you the property as well as money spent, some of them can even lead to prosecution.
Things such as mortgage fraud and false construction contracts are criminal offenses rather than mistakes or oversights and are taken seriously as a result. In order to avoid making mistakes that could cost you your time, money, or freedom, make sure you have an experienced legal team on your side to help.
New Jersey Short Sale
Short sales are some of the most difficult sales to navigate because of the various elements involved. It isn’t always as easy as just exchanging cash for a deed.
First, a title search must be conducted, but that is just the beginning. Some lenders won’t deal with short sales at all. Worse, some sellers are not even qualified to make the sale they are proposing.
Without legal representation, the whole thing can turn into one big mess that costs you thousands of dollars. An experienced Burlington County real estate lawyer at Jean Baptiste & Associates, LLC will ensure that no matter the type of real estate transaction, it is carried out legally and in the best way possible.
