Why Having A Lawyer At A Real Estate Closing Makes Sense

At Mitchell Pollack & Associates, we represent buyers, sellers, and lenders at residential and commercial real estate closings in the lower Hudson Valley of New York state and northern New Jersey.

Why Hire An Attorney?

Even in relatively simple purchases and sales of single-family homes, the best time to engage a real estate attorney is before you sign the purchase agreement. At Mitchell Pollack & Associates, we can help you identify the terms and contingencies that should be addressed in the purchase agreement itself in order to protect your interests if:

  • The buyer cannot find mortgage financing
  • The seller cannot deliver an unencumbered title
  • More time will be necessary to complete repairs or correct building code or zoning violations

By the time your transaction reaches closing, you will be assured that any problems the other side of the deal encounters in meeting its obligations will not become a problem of yours.

Buying Or Selling A Home? We Can Help.

Between the execution of the purchase agreement and the closing, our real estate lawyers will monitor the other side's performance while helping you overcome any difficulties of your own. We can handle problems relating to title, old liens, mortgage financing, subordination and even environmental issues.

Whether you are buying your first home, or have worked for years in the real estate or mortgage industry, we can help you close on the purchase, sale or mortgage of real estate anywhere in the Hudson Valley, Westchester County, New York City or northern New Jersey.
