Real Estate Attorneys Serving Clients in California

Buying or selling a home, condominium, or co-op can be a seamless process as long as you have an experienced lawyer at your side. At BoyesLegal, we guide clients through all aspects of residential real estate transactions.

Above all, we are committed to providing our clients and the communities we serve with the highest standards of professionalism. 

What To Look For In A Real Estate Contract

The purchase and sales agreement governs the details of the transaction, such as:

  • A description of the property
  • The purchase price
  • The buyer’s initial deposit
  • The buyer’s timeline to inspect the property
  • The representations and warranties the parties make to one another
  • Estimated closing of escrow 

A well-conceived real estate contract should also cover contingencies: Is the deal contingent on the buyer obtaining financing? Is the deal contingent on a satisfactory home inspection, or will the seller be required to make needed repairs? What happens to the deposit if either party defaults? Ultimately, a purchase and sales agreement must conform to applicable laws and specify items that will be included in the sale, such as appliances and light fixtures. 

Although buying or selling a home can be nerve-wracking, our capable real estate lawyers can help take the stress out of the process. You can trust us to guide you every step of the way and close the deal expediently.
