Buyers' Services

Despite the frequency of home conveyances, the acquisition process can be complex, confusing, and isolating for first-time and experienced buyers alike. This is due in part to perpetually ongoing changes to government regulations of loan providers. But even when financing is not an issue, the process can still be daunting and frustrating. Buyers can feel like no one is in "their corner" and too often, they're right.

There is a certain level of inherent risk in a process where everyone else is a stranger to the buyer. The interests of these other parties all hinge on a quick and tidy closing, even if the terms of that closing are not necessarily in the buyer's best interest. When this happens, the buyer takes on a higher risk allocation than he/she deserves. This is where an attorney can help.
