Philadelphia Residential Real Estate Attorneys For Buyers And Sellers

Buying a piece of residential property is one of the most important investments people make. However, there are significant risks involved in any real estate transaction, whether you are buying or selling property for yourself or as a rental property for tenants. Employing the services of an experienced residential real estate attorney is critical if you want to avoid the many pitfalls of buying, selling and renting real estate.

At Max Lieberman & Associates, P.C., we help our clients reduce risks and mitigate unforeseen problems with every transaction. Many of our clients are repeat customers and come to us based on referrals from other satisfied clients throughout the five-county Greater Philadelphia region.

Our lawyers sit down with you to identify any risks and help you understand your full legal and financial options. With over 70 years of combined real estate experience, we are well-prepared to answer any question or concern you may have about a residential transaction.

Some of the ways we can help you include:

  • Drafting and review of real estate contracts: We draft real estate contracts for purchasers and sellers. We will review your contract to ensure you are getting the deal you expect.
  • Review of real estate broker's contract (listing agreement): We review the terms of the contract thoroughly and ensure that all broker responsibilities and incentives are in your best interests.
  • Order and review title insurance commitment: We review your title commitment to look for liens, easements and other encumbrances that can affect your title. We only use companies we have faith in. We never accept kickbacks from title companies.
  • Termination of real estate contracts: We assist in the termination of both purchase and sale contracts if the deal falls through.
  • Attending real estate closings: We will represent you at a real estate closing or settlement meeting, and explain the documents to you.
  • Short sales and foreclosures: We assist homeowners with bank negotiations for short sales, deeds in lieu of foreclosure and with foreclosure prevention strategies.
  • Title change: We can assist you in transferring title after a death or with a title change after divorce or breakup.
  • Real estate dispute resolution and litigation: We can assist with breach of contract actions and enforcement of agreements, including condominium or homeowners association (HOA) matters.

Purchasing residential real estate is an important investment. The last thing you want is to be surprised by a tax lien, unpaid assessment or outstanding inspection violation. We will work with you to address all of these concerns before it is too late.

  • If you are interested in buying real estate in Montgomery County or elsewhere in southeastern Pennsylvania, it is critical that a thorough title search is completed to check for liens on the property.
  • If you are buying or selling, our firm will review the results of title reports for problems, negotiate sales and enforce building contracts for new houses.
  • If you are thinking of organizing a condominium, we can prepare and file a condominium declaration and draft bylaws, rules and regulations.
  • If you are buying a condominium or a home in a planned community, we can review the rules and regulations with you to be sure they are compatible with your lifestyle.
