When Do I Need an Attorney for an Illinois Real Estate Closing?

Experienced Kane County Real Estate Lawyers

Buying or selling your home can be very stressful and one of the most significant financial transactions in your life. There are many small errors that can occur, and in order to avoid any of them potentially happening to you, you should contact our team at Pucci Pirtle for some real estate closing assistance.

We would like you to fully understand the ramifications of the paperwork and documentation that you are signing. The best option is to have an attorney on retainer before anything is signed so that we can prepare that information for you. If you have already signed a contract, you should still have legal representation review your case before modifications cannot be made. Generally, you only have seven days to make these changes, so timing is crucial.

It is important to understand that the lender’s or seller’s attorney does not represent you during this transaction. He or she may not be able to answer your legal questions and is required to act in the best interests of the lender or seller, not yours. Oftentimes, during closings, last-minute disputes arise, such as adjustment of various costs, delivering possessions and personal property, or fuel and taxes. Having a lawyer present verifies that you are not at risk. This way, there is someone on your side with nothing but your best interests in mind to finalize everything.
