Do I Need A Real Estate Lawyer in NC?

If you are buying or selling a property in North Carolina, you may be wondering if you need a real estate lawyer. A licensed real estate lawyer is required to handle all residential real estate closings in North Carolina. However, North Carolina does not require the lawyer to be physically present at the closing. While it's not required by law, having a lawyer on your side can provide several benefits.

A real estate lawyer in Charlotte, NC can review and help negotiate contracts, ensure that all necessary paperwork is filed correctly, and protect your interests throughout the process. They can also provide guidance in the event of any disputes or legal issues that may arise. While it may seem like an additional expense, the peace of mind and legal protection that comes with having a Charlotte real estate lawyer can be invaluable.

Why Do I Need A Real Estate Lawyer in SC?

According to the law in South Carolina, an attorney must be present at the closing of any real estate transaction.

What Documents Do Real Estate Attorneys Handle?

A real estate lawyer takes into account all potential angles in a property transaction. The close of a property deal usually requires specialized documents that they are trained and experienced in handling. 

Your Charlotte and Sumter real estate lawyer will typically handle the following documents:

  • Purchase agreements
  • Mortgage documents
  • Title documents
  • Transfer documents

In advance of the closing, you can review the paperwork with your attorney and ask any questions you may have. We also handle closings at the actual property location, real estate broken offices, and any other location that is convenient for you!

Does the Buyer or Seller of a Property Hire a Real Estate Lawyer?

Some states require the attorney to be present at the closing. You’ll work closely with one of our lawyers to set a closing date that allows all parties to be there. Attorneys are usually hired by the buyer in most real estate transactions. It’s ultimately up to you to decide which attorney is right for you, but your real estate agent may be able to make some suggestions.
