Buying a new home or selling real estate are complex transactions, and these situations can involve some of the most significant financial decisions you may make during your entire life. A variety of different things can go wrong in the time between making or accepting an offer and the closing date, and without a skilled legal advocate on your side, you may inadvertently make decisions that can have far-reaching consequences. To ensure that you complete your transaction successfully, you need to work with an attorney who can protect your rights and financial interests.

DuPage County Home Purchases and Sales

A residential real estate transaction typically begins when a buyer makes an offer on a home, and the seller accepts that offer. Once the parties agree on a purchase price, they will enter into a real estate contract that defines the terms of the purchase agreement, including responsibility for payments and fees, dates and deadlines, and property included in the sale. We can review this contract to ensure you fully understand your rights and requirements, and we can help you negotiate favorable terms to meet your needs. We will work with you to address issues such as disclosures by the seller or contingencies requested by either party.

After a home inspection is performed, we help you determine how to address any issues or defects that were found. We will ensure that you understand your rights as a buyer or seller, and we can negotiate agreements to have defects repaired or to adjust the purchase price of the home or the payment of fees to address the costs related to these issues. Before completing the transaction, we can help you make sure these matters are resolved to your satisfaction.

Before the date of closing, we will perform a title search and help uncover and address any issues that may affect the sale. If we discover any liens, judgments, previous mortgages, easements, boundary disputes, or other issues, we can help determine how to resolve these matters so that the sale can be completed successfully.

On the closing date, we will prepare all necessary documents and ensure that everything is in order before signing the final paperwork. We will walk you through all of these documents and fully explain what you are signing, your rights and responsibilities, the closing costs you will be required to pay, and any steps you need to take once the sale is complete. After the closing, we will ensure that all of the documents are filed correctly, that payments are distributed as needed, and that ownership of the home is transferred properly.
