Posted by Damaris Bits on June 16th, 2016

When in the process of purchasing a home in Greenville NC, getting the services of a real estate attorney can be a good idea. The attorney would ensure that your rights are protected and would process all the necessary legal documents that are needed for the process. Given below are some tips that would help in choosing the right attorney and steer you through the complex process.

    Start the search early: The hunt for a good real estate attorney in Greenville NC must be started early. You should start to look for an attornery before or right when you start searching for a home. It may take some time and you want to be sure to pick someone who is knowledgable

    Seek the advice of others: Talk to family, colleagues and friends who have purchased a home recently and ask them if they can recommend someone. Seek names of attorneys from a reputable real estate agent. Make sure you ask how much their fees are for their services and also ask your acquaintances how the attorney helped in navigating the process of buying a home.

    Consider the experience: While finding a ‘residential attorney’, see to it that he handles real estate cases regularly and not someone who has only worked on a few cases. Check online with the bar association of the state and see if they are having a lawyer referral service.

    Search online: Once the names of few attorneys have been shortlisted, check their websites. You can find more details about business style, specialties, credentials, backgrounds and contact information. Sometimes, you might want to meet an attorney personally. At such times, prefer a local attorney.

    Interview the attorney: Select a few attorneys in Greenville and take a telephonic or a personal interview. In the interview, ask them about their years of experience and their background. See how many closings they perform in a month and see what kind of services they provide. Some lawyers charge on an hourly basis, so it would be better that you know that sooner rather than later.

    Do some reading: Search through some information online or in books about the process of hiring an attorney for real estate. Visit the attorney’s website to get a better idea of the work they do on a regular basis and if their speciality matches what you need.

    Get everything in writing: Once the attorney is selected, read the ‘retainer agreement’ or ‘engagement letter’ in which attorney is mentioning the services that would be provided. Ensure that all terms are fully understood.
