3 Mistakes People Make When Hiring a Real Estate Attorney

door-sign-469588_1280In New York, you want to hire a real estate attorney. It’s too risky not to. Most people make the same few mistakes?

Mistake #1: Wait until after they have found their ideal apartment or house and have an accepted offer.

Why is this a mistake? The pressure is on. You need to find a real estate attorney now and don’t have the time to really do a good job finding someone.

Mistake #2: In a rush, they ask a few friends for recommendations.

Why is this a mistake? Just because a friend liked their lawyer, doesn’t mean that you will click with them as well. Also, your friend might have picked a lawyer who doesn’t have the expertise that you need.

Mistake #3: Hire the cheapest lawyer they find.

Why is this a mistake? A good real estate lawyer will spend the time working on your behalf and will save you money – or at the least will not cost you more – in the long run. This is probably the biggest transaction of your life and not worth saving a couple of hundred bucks.

Take the time and find the right real estate attorney for you.

  • Well said. I do agree with you. People often make these three mistakes when hiring a real estate attorney. Even me, made the same mistakes. Another greatest mistake is that hiring without knowing the experience of the attorney. Thanks a ton to the author for helping to identify the mistakes.
