Frequently Asked Questions
In our over twenty-five years of practicing real estate law in NJ, we’ve heard a lot of the same questions regarding real estate.
Hopefully the FAQs listed below will help you to better understand the closing process during your home-buying journey:
How much do you charge?
Call us, tell us about yourself and your transaction and we will be happy to quote you the amount you can expect to pay at the time of your closing. We hate surprises as much as you do, so we will strive to provide you with a figure you can budget to as far in advance as possible.
Do you specialize in real estate?
Yes. It’s all we do. Sanchez Law is a boutique firm dedicated to the practice of real estate law, at the highest levels possible.
Do you practice in states outside of New Jersey?
Our residential real estate practice is limited just to New Jersey, but our commercial practice spans the entire U.S. and even internationally.
Do I need an attorney to buy a house?
Yeah, but my Realtor said I don’t need a lawyer?
What does a real estate attorney do?
My offer was just accepted (I’m a buyer), what do I do?
Congratulations! But first, make sure your offer is really accepted. In the world of real estate, if it isn’t in writing, it doesn’t exist. To really have an “accepted” offer, you need to know that the Seller has signed off on your Contract. Have your Realtor email us the fully executed contract to firstname.lastname@example.org. Then, you need to call us. We will conduct an intake, walk you through the process and we will commence attorney review. Pro Tip: Text the following to 908 963 2550: “I’m a new buyer client, when can you talk?”
I just accepted and offer (I’m a seller), what do I do?
Congratulations! First, make sure you’ve sent the signed contract back to the Buyer. Second, if you have these available, locate your deed, condominium documents (if applicable), your title policy, your latest mortgage statement (if applicable), and your survey. Have your Realtor email us the fully executed contract to email@example.com. Then, you need to call us. We will conduct an intake, walk you through the process and we will commence attorney review. Pro Tip: Text the following to 908 963 2550: “I’m a new seller client, when can you talk?”
I’ve been told I have 3 days to do attorney review, is that right?
What is attorney review?
I am so impressed with Carlos Sanchez work. I have dealt with other attorneys with real estate deals and never have felt like I really had someone both knowledgeable and supportive. Questions were answered quickly and explained with details and options . I highly recommend him and his staff. I have worked with him twice and am quite sure I will work with again in the future.. I highly recommend him.
Carlos was awesome and a pleasure to work with! His team and him made our closing process a breeze! Carlos was supportive and extremely knowledgeable during the closing process of our first home. I'm glad I worked with Carlos because he was a straight shooter and is a no nonsense type of guy.
Carlos and his team are incredibly knowledgeable and supportive. We sold a property while out of state and negotiations had to deal with an old decommissioned oil tank on the property. It was all handled professionally and we felt we were in good hands the entire time. Would highly recommend!
