Real Estate Transactions Are Not The Time To Take Risks

I Will Be The Only Person At Your Closing Who Is Working For You

For many people, the purchase of a home or other real estate property is the most significant investment they will ever make. The paperwork is extensive and complex. With so much on the line, it is wise to protect your interests in any real estate transaction, whether you are purchasing or selling property.

The Law Offices of James H. Miller, Jr., represents individuals and businesses in all types of real estate transactions in Greater Chicago, Illinois. I am an experienced attorney who understands the purpose of every document you will sign. It may be tempting to skirt through a real estate transaction without guidance from a lawyer who is focused on protecting your interests, but the risks are too high to do so. Besides, I provide most services in real estate transaction for an affordable flat fee. My services include:

  • A thorough review of all contracts
  • Monitoring of inspection results and agreements on repairs that must be completed as a condition of the sale
  • Ensuring that the title on the property is clear
  • Searching for unnecessary charges

What Is A Title Search And Why Is It Necessary?

Many people know that every property has a title, but they are uncertain what it actually is and why a title search is an important component of any real estate transaction. A title is a record for the property that shows:

  • The property’s legal owner as well as a history of who owned it previously
  • Restrictive covenants that may limit how the property can be used
  • Whether there are liens, outstanding claims or judgments on the property

Surprises can be fun, but not at a real estate closing. Whether you are buying or selling property, you want the process to proceed smoothly. My role is to make that happen for my clients, or to raise important concerns when something is not right. The time to spot concerns in a real estate transaction is before all of those purchase and sale agreements are signed.

When real estate disputes do occur, I can advocate aggressively on your behalf. Often, a dispute can be resolved through negotiation. But if litigation is necessary, I have extensive trial experience and will fight for your rights.
