Buying a Home With Confidence

When you call on The Law Offices of Guthrie & Brady, you will acquire the services of an experienced real estate attorney who can give you the advice and guidance to make your transaction a smooth one. 

With a real estate attorney, you will receive the peace of mind knowing that your interests are being protected and addressed. 

The role of a real estate attorney is to ensure that you are getting what you want for the price you want when you are purchasing a home. Your real estate attorney will pay close attention to:

  • The purchase price
  • The state of personal property involved in the sale
  • The mortgage contingency clause
  • The inspection clause
  • The clause that governs penalties for default

Your real estate attorney will also make sure that the seller has provided you with the required disclosures (regarding the property’s condition, including radon hazards, the status of lead paint, etc.) and warranties. They will also make sure the various prorations (taxes, utility bills, rents, association dues, etc.) are reasonable for you.

With The Law Offices of Guthrie & Brady, you will receive all of that and more!
