Attorney Provides Fort Lauderdale For Sale By Owner Legal Services

Personalized guidance for a successful property sale

Americans have always had a do-it-yourself spirit and home sales are no exception. Selling your house without a realtor can save you thousands of dollars. According to the real estate website Zillow.com, the median price of homes sold in Fort Lauderdale is $336,000, so a six percent realtor commission would amount to $20,160. But while you can personally handle the publicity and showing the property to interested buyers, there are certain aspects of a home sale you should delegate to professionals. The Law Office of Tania Sayegh Bartolini, P.A. provides a full range of legal services for DIY property sellers. We can help you avoid costly rookie mistakes so you can get the full benefit of your efforts.

Knowledgeable real estate lawyer advises owners on DIY property sales

Once you find a willing buyer on your own, you’re still going to need legal services to clear and finalize the sale, including:

  • Title clearance — We review your title for defects, then take the necessary steps to cure the problems. If there are errors related to the deed, boundary issues, or encumbrances, we can tackle those problems, so they do not impede your sale.
  • Lien searches — If someone has a claim against your property, you are legally obligated to disclose it. Our thorough search of various sources will disclose any problems, which you might be unaware of.
  • Sales contract — Although a contract for the sale of property is somewhat standard, it must contain an accurate description of your unique property. The contract might also have to be customized due to encumbrances, such as easements. We draft personalized property sales contracts that are accurate and reliable.
  • Deed — It is the seller’s task to draft a deed. We make sure the deeds we draft accurately describe the property and include all assurances and disclosures needed to make the transfer effective.
  • Closing representation — When it’s time to close, you’re going to get hit with a blizzard of detailed and technical paperwork. Rather than drive yourself to distraction and risk costly errors, allow us to draft or to review your closing documents, so everything is in good order.

When you retain our services, you get the benefit of 15 plus years of real estate experience. We can explain the basics of the “for sale by owner” process at a free consultation, so you’ll know what you can capably manage on your own, and what issues require the services of a qualified professional. We are available throughout the process whenever an issue comes up that requires advice on how to proceed. Together, we can make your DIY home sale a success.
